What happens during the video consultation?

Before your consultation, we’ll review your request and examine your photos. If you’re a current patient, we use your patient chart (x-rays, history, etc.) for a better diagnosis.

Then, we’ll create a treatment plan based on your type of inquiry. It could be as simple as budget-friendly tips to help whiten your teeth or more complex involving a full mouth makeover.

We’ll contact you by phone or email to schedule your one-on-one virtual consultation with Dr. John Merrill or Dr. David Bunn.

During your video call, we’ll review your inquiry and go over our recommendations, which will likely include:

  • All the services you can achieve your goal with.
  • What you can expect with each treatment.
  • An estimate on how much it’ll cost (we’ll give an exact cost at your initial appointment).
  • How long or how many appointments it might take.
  • Next steps.

If you have any questions or concerns, we’d love to hear what you’re thinking.

Some patients request to book an appointment right away, while others like to take some time to think about their options over.

The next decision is purely up to you.

Our goal is to help you feel informed about your smile and oral health options, so you make an educated decision.
