Your first visit to Heritage Dental will involve a comprehensive exam and will include:

  • Necessary x-rays
  • Periodontal (gum) evaluation
  • Thorough tooth exam
  • TMJ evaluation
  • Bite evaluation
  • Oral cancer exam
  • Cosmetic evaluation

This exam gives Dr. Gut the information needed to develop a customized treatment plan to meet your individual needs. Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your first consultation:

  • Any X-rays (if applicable)
  • A list of your current medical prescriptions
  • To save time during your first visit to Heritage Dental, we provide you with opportunity to download necessary forms prior to your appointment.

For your convenience, specific scheduled appointments are made to reserve time so that we can properly treat your dental needs. To provide this quality care, no one else is scheduled during your appointment time. Due to today’s high cost of maintaining a modern, sterile, completely staffed facility, we kindly request that you be present for the time reserved.

Please notify us 24 hours in advance if you need to change your appointment. This courtesy makes it possible to give your appointment time to another patient who needs to see the doctor.

Patients who choose to continuously abuse their appointment times by not showing up will be notified in writing about termination of the doctor-patient relationship and will have to look for another dental provider.

Our answering service is always available to take messages when the office is closed.

We recognize that you can have a dental emergency and we will do our best to respond to your problem promptly. Please call us as early in the day as possible. If the problem arises when the office is closed, the answering service will forward your message directly to Dr. Gut.
