New Patient Information


Your First Visit at Robert F. Cannis, DMD


New Patient InfoYour initial appointment will consist of a review of your medical and dental history, a full mouth examination, an oral cancer screening, a complete series of x-rays and necessary photographs. A cleaning (prophylaxis) will also be completed if there are no periodontal (gum) problems diagnosed. For more complex treatment plans, at a second visit consultation, Dr. Cannis will review with you his diagnostic findings, treatment options and priorities and convenient financial options.


Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

  • Any current x-rays if available
  • A list of your current medical prescriptions
  • Any need for antibiotic prior to dental treatment


If there are any questions regarding pre-medication, please contact our office. This will also be covered when we review your medical history.


If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
