First Visit

At the Root Canal Center of Naples we would love the opportunity to change your perception of what it means to get a root canal. Advancements in technology and anesthesia have evolved the modern root canal to make the procedure quick and pain free.

Prior to your arrival, our staff will typically contact you to get your dental insurance information, if applicable. We ask for this information so that, as a service to you, we can provide you the best estimate of coverage. If you have dental insurance, please also bring a copy of your dental insurance card to your first appointment.

Upon arrival to our office, you will be given a welcome packet which includes important documents we will need you to complete so that we can establish you as a patient in our practice. These documents take most people 15 minutes to fill out, so if this is your first visit with us please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to allow the necessary time to complete these important documents. If you would prefer, a copy of these documents is available here so that you can download and complete prior to your appointment. If you choose to do this, please remember to bring the completed documents with you to your visit. We will also need a copy of a drivers license or other photo identification upon your arrival.

Please also bring an up-to-date list of any medications you are taking. If you typically require pre-medication prior to dental appointments (due to joint replacement, artificial heart valves, or other condition), please notify us ahead of your appointment. Also, if your dentist has provided you with a referral slip to our office, it is useful if you bring this with you as well.

Unless you or your dentist have requested an evaluation only, we typically schedule enough time during your first visit to treat your dental condition, if we determine that treatment is warranted. Though we have likely already been in contact with your dentist, we typically will take a new set of radiographs (x-rays) at your first visit using our highly specialized sensors which are specifically designed for imaging the root system of teeth. We do this so that we can provide you with the highest quality care.

If you have any other questions, please give us a call at 239-262-2677
