First Visit

Your first appointment will be scheduled for either a consultation only or a consultation with treatment time that same day. Your endodontist will perform a thorough endodontic examination, review your health records, and make a treatment recommendation. Following your appointment, we will forward your consultation or treatment report to your referring dentist and we’re happy to provide you a copy as well. Please note that all patients under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the first appointment.

Please let us know if you have a medical condition that may be of concern, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc. We also need to know if you take regular medications such as those for heart conditions, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc. or if you require medication such as antibiotics prior to dental cleanings.

Our protocol is to take all necessary radiographic images (x-rays) at your visit to our office. We require both 2-D standard images and 3-D images (Cone Beam CT scan or CBCT) for all patients. For dental concerns requiring endodontic treatment or root canal, the radiographic presentation may change in a short period of time. This means the images taken at a previous provider or your referring dentist’s office may not be relevant when we see you.

Our endodontists Dr. Milton Davenport, Dr. Vikash Huliyar, and Dr. Samir Patel and our staff at all three Chicago offices are committed to making your first visit – and all appointments – comfortable and pain-free.
