|Your Office Visit|
We understand the importance and value of your time. As a part of our commitment to you and your time, on our website, we provide all of the patient information you need to review and complete for your appointment.
- Please call 425.974.7014 to schedule your appointment.
- Please bring a copy of your insurance card and/or any dental information with you. As a courtesy, we will file your insurance and accept assignment of benefits.
- It is advisable to bring a list of all the medications (over-the-counter and prescription) that you regularly take or have taken within the past month.
- You will need to complete the Patient Registration Form
- You can complete this online and submit it through a HIPPA secured site.
- Or, download a PDF of the form, complete the form, and then bring a printed copy on the day of your visit.
Should you choose to complete your information on our site, you will need to arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment. If you choose to complete your paperwork at the office, please arrive 30 minute prior to your appointment.
Upon completing all necessary forms, an assistant will review and chart your chief complaint, referring dentist's information and history of the tooth/teeth in question before taking x-rays.
Once your first set of x-rays is complete, Dr. Yamada will review your information and evaluate your symptoms prior to performing tests on your teeth. After the tests are complete, a diagnosis will be given to determine the best treatment care and prognosis. You will be given an opportunity to discuss the benefits, options and risks involved in your endodontic treatment.
If you decide to receive treatment, the procedure may start immediately. Before treatment begins, you will receive local anesthesia to numb any sensations you may feel during the procedure. Most endodontic procedures can be completed in a single appointment. If the procedure is unable to be completed in one visit, medicine may be placed inside the tooth between appointments.
Upon the completion of your treatment, more x-rays are taken to track the success of the treatment. You will be provided with review sheets that include your post-operation instructions and what to expect over the next few days. Possible post-treatment decisions such as a filling or crown on the treated tooth will be addressed.
Should you have any questions or concerns regarding your treatment, do not hesitate to contact our office. More detailed information regarding endodontic procedures and post-treatment care is available in this website.
