First Visit to Smiles of Orlando
What to Expect During Your First Visit:
An initial consultation is an easy way to explore your options. We will review your dental records, x-rays, and any referral instructions from your dentist/surgeon if this material is available. It is an important appointment in which we listen to your concerns since for our team, knowing each of our patients’ desires is as important as creating the ideal treatment plan.
Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day. Your first visit may be from 1-1/2 hours to 2 hours, depending on each individual case.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral slip and any x-rays/CT Scans if applicable
- A list of medications you are currently taking
- Have the completed Patient Registration Forms downloaded from our website, insurance card (if any), and photo ID This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays/CT scans, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office for your consultation. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken to our facility.
We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting. Due to the fact, Dr. Martinez provides many types of dental services, various circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure. Emergency cases can also arise and cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
