Your First Visit
Your first appointment will consist of a consultation with the doctor explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. You will receive a complete "dental physical" so that we can gather a detailed diagnostic record of your mouth and teeth.
Your examination will include:
- Medical and Dental History
- Blood Pressure Screening
- An Oral Cancer Screening
- Digital Photographs of Your Face, Profile, and Teeth
- Evaluation of Your Existing Restorations
- Functional Diagnosis of the TMJ (your jaw joint)
- Gum-Depth Measurements
- Customized Treatment Planning
- Patient Education on Findings
We need patients to bring referral slips, list of medications, and their dental insurance card. All patients under 18 must have a parent or legal guardian present. Please alert the office staff if you have an existing medical condition, including artificial valves or joints, rheumatic fever, pregnancy. If your dentist or physician has taken recent X-rays, please have them forwarded to our Hackettstown office, or you may pick up the films and bring them with you. Should we need more information, additional films can be taken at our facility.
During your second appointment, Dr. Kakkar will review his findings and explain his treatment recommendations. You’ll have time to ask questions so that you can understand any issues we have discovered and our proposed treatment.
