Your First Visit
Your first visit to Gary J. Wokuluk, D.D.S. establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. During this visit, Dr. Wokuluk will do an examination of your teeth, then x-rays will be taken (if applicable), and then there will be a consultation with Dr. Wokuluk where he will explain your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be performed the same day as the exam and consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on a separate day.
To completely understand what to expect for your first visit to our practice, please read through this website. You'll find all the practical information you need, such as a map and directions to our office, practice hours, payment policies and more.
You can even save some time at your first visit by visiting our Patient Forms page in advance of your appointment. Download the forms and fill them out at home where your necessary information is handy and readily available. Then bring the filled out forms with you or you can fax them to us anytime before your appointment date.
