Your Visit

Your visit will begin with an important pre-treatment evaluation with Dr. Nerness.  This will include a focused oral examination and in some cases a CBCT 3D radiograph to evaluate the area more thoroughly.  Following examination, the diagnosis, treatment options, alternatives, prognosis, risks, benefits, and costs will be explained to you.  If treatment is indicated, treatment can be provided immediately at the same appointment in most cases. However, in some complex cases, a separate evaluation appointment may be needed.

What to Bring

  • Referral slip from your dentist

  • Photo ID e.g. drivers license

  • Medication list

  • Insurance card

  • Payment for services to be rendered that day
