Your First Visit
We will ask that you complete a New Patient form in addition to signing our Notice of Privacy Practices form on your first visit. All of these forms can be found by selecting Patient Forms. Please feel free to complete these forms prior to your visit. However, all forms must be signed in the presence of one of our staff members.
During your first visit, we will perform a complete diagnostic examination and evaluation of your TMJs with the assistance of advanced technology. We will make molds of your teeth for study models, analyze your jaw movement and record vibration with computer analysis, listen to your jaw joints with directional doppler, and create a 3D digital model of your skull and jaw. Following this evaluation, Dr. Pettit will sit down with you and discuss the findings and treatment recommendations.
Our intent is to help you understand more about your condition. If at any time you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask Dr. Pettit or one of our staff members.
