Your First Visit to the Office of Dr. Gillis
Once you have scheduled your initial visit, Shelly, our business assistant, will mail you an account registration and medical history form for you to fill out at your convenience prior to your appointment. Upon your arrival in our office, you will be introduced to one of our treatment assistants who will escort you on a guided tour of the office. You will then be seated in one of our comfortable treatment rooms where you will be able to enjoy our expansive view of the Bookcliffs.
We will begin the exam with a review of your medical and dental history and then take the necessary X-rays and photographs of your smile.
Dr. Gillis will then proceed with an evaluation of each tooth in your mouth, your gums and supporting structures, and an evaluation of your bite and jaw joint function. An oral cancer examination will be completed at your initial visit and at all continuing care visits.
When your examination is complete, Dr. Gillis will discuss our findings with you and make recommendations for treatment. We want you to know what should be done and the cost involved. Also, we want you to help decide which path we should follow based on your goals for your dental health.
You will be pleased to find that our fees are comparable to others in this area. Shelly, our business assistant, will be happy to work with you to create a financial arrangement that will make excellent dental care affordable.
Our practice will not disclose without your authorization protected health information in accordance with our Notice of Privacy Practices.
