Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the doctor has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you. It also will help relieve any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling. Educate yourself on your symptoms by reviewing the content on this website. Also, take some time to review our staff page and familiarize yourself with the doctors. We look forward to meeting you!

Your first visit with Dr. Budd (Board Certified Endodontist)

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining you diagnosis and treatment options. Also at this appointment, we will take any necessary x-rays or tests.

If a root canal procedure is needed and time permits, we may be able to accommodate your treatment the same day. However, if your medical history or dental situation is more complex, an appointment will be needed to provide treatment on another day.

Your first visit with Dr. Prior (Board Certified Periodontist)

If you are visiting the Periodontist for a gum or implant issue, an examination will be done and necessary films may be taken on the first visit. A follow-up visit to review the findings with you, to answer your questions, and to review your treatment options will be scheduled. Once you understand the diagnosis condition and treatment options, treatment can then be scheduled.
