Appointments & ConsultationsWe are happy to schedule a New Patient or second-opinion consultation with Dr. Dose to discuss treatment previously diagnosed for you. We make every effort to provide all available information on the types of treatment completed at Lake Oswego Dental Care, as well as options to make appointments comfortable.
All patients that are referred to our office from another practice, or who have self-referred themselves for a second opinion are required to undergo a complete examination by Dr. Dose before providing his diagnosis opinion. You will be asked to complete our New Patient Paperwork and ensure that all available x-rays and chart notes from your prior office have been transferred to us prior to the scheduled appointment for review. Please note that many offices require 7 – 14 business days to transfer records.
