Patient Information

Preparing for your First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Often, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, if a patient has a complex medical history or complex dental treatment plan, a second appointment may be necessary.

Dr. Gamson is on call after hours and can be reached by calling the office phone number 301-493-4496 and following the instructions.

We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting. Due to the fact that our practice provides surgical services, various circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure.

If you have pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you that day.

What To Bring

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

  • Your referral slip from your referring dentist and any X-Rays you may have been given.
  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary ID cards and/or completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
  • Please fill out the Patient Registration Form, which can be found here.

IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 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, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e antibiotics, for pre-med.)

X-Rays: If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), you may request that they forward them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility. Please note that our office takes digital x-rays, meaning that the radiation dose is lower than conventional dental x-rays. This provides us with a high resolution image for helping us with your diagnosis while dramatically reducing your radiation exposure.


Appointment Reminder

The office will call or e-mail you one day before your appointment.

Late Arrivals

If you are going to be late, please contact us. We may not be able to see you right away. 

Missed Appointments

A minimum 24 hour notice of appointment cancellation must be given otherwise a $50 fee will be charged.
