Patient Forms

Our head cosmetic dentists, Cathy J. Santone, DDS and Megan Dietz, DDS, have integrated advanced dental software with our practice to create an entirely paperless office. By digitally tracking patient information, records, and appointments, we are able to provide a more convenient experience for patients, while simultaneously minimizing our impact on the environment. Individuals can now efficiently fill out their patient forms online from the comfort of their own homes. Not only does this allow more efficient record-keeping, but it can also make your appointment faster and more timely.

What if I miss my appointment?

Because we reserve your appointment, we ask for 72-hours advanced notice for all cancellations.
