First Visit

Dr. Bowne and Dr. Chi are dedicated to providing you with a pleasant visit and results that you’re proud to show off. Our staff is ready to help you with questions about scheduling, financial policy and insurance.

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. 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.

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, rheumatic fever, 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.)


If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), you may request that they forward them to our office. They may be emailed to us at  If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken in our office.
