preparing for your First Visit
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be done on the same day as the consultation. During your consultation with Dr. To and our dental team examining your medical and dental history, your dentist might present an evaluation and a treatment plan. A second appointment on another day might be necessary to give time for your dental team to prepare your treatment with as much time as needed to ensure your satisfaction.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
1) COVID Screening
As part of our COVID response, our team members will perform health checks before visit and on arrival.
- Facemask is required.
- Physical distancing in patient area.
- Only one guardian per minor is allowed for visit.
2) Your referral slip and X-ray’s.
If a doctor referred you to Parklane Dental, please bring your referral slip with dental information for our doctors.
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), you may request your previous dentist to send them to our office.
If additional films are necessary in addition to your previous x-rays, they can be taken at our facility with our x-ray technology inside every room. Visit our x-ray page for more info.
3) A list of medications you are taking.
Medications you are presently taking may affect the dental medications and treatment procedures that you receive here. Please consult Dr. To and your dental team for more details regarding your medication!.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern or if you are on any medication or require medication before your visit.
4) For medical or dental insurance, bring copies of your insurance forms.
This will save time and allow us to help you process your insurance claims!
Often, your insurance might issue an insurance card with important information regarding your insurance plan such as the insurance group name and ID number, coverage date, and subscriber (name, date of birth, relationship to patient, and ID number).
5) Please arrive 15 minutes before your first visit.
As we value our patient’s time, we ask our new patients to arrive 15 minutes before your appointment for paperless new patient registration.
This will give you time to complete your patient information and medical history forms on your phone or on our tablet.
IMPORTANT FOR MINORS :
A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under age of 18 at the consultation visit. If the incoming patient is under the age of 18, a parent or guardian must be present to sign financial, medical, and consent forms for all treatments and procedures.
As part of our COVID response, we ask that only one guardian or parent accompany any minor for his or her dental visit here at Parklane Dental. Thank you for helping us keep our community safe!
