First Visit

At your first appointment, Dr. Maher will complete a full comprehensive oral examination.  This includes a complete review of your medical and dental history, all necessary x-rays and intraoral photos, oral cancer screening, periodontal health evaluation and an exam of your teeth and soft tissues.  After this exam, Dr. Maher will discuss her findings with you, develop a treatment plan that you are comfortable with, an then an appointment will be scheduled according to your needs and desires.

Please be prepared for your dental appointment by completing the New Patient Registration Form and the Dental and Medical Evaluation.  These forms can be found online or if you prefer we can mail prior to your appointment.   If you have dental insurance, please provide all requested information to assist us in verifying your insurance. 

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

  • Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable.
  • A list of medications you are currently taking.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).


If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our office.
