Consultations - Other Items to Bring

•   It is vital that Dr. Duncan's Treatment Plan for the patient is consistent with the patient's referring doctor.  
 Please ask your referring physician/dentist for a Physician/Dentist Referral form before your consultation.  We will ask for this referral upon your arrival.  Click here to download our referral form.

•   Panoramic X-Rays  - if a full mouth panoramic x-ray was taken within the past six (6) months we ask you to either bring this to your consultation or have your referring dentist email this x-ray to our attention. Our email is drduncanoms@bellsouth.net . PLEASE NOTE: a panoramic x-ray may be taken by our office at the time of your consultation (as the referring dentist may want the original panoramic back and/or the resolution scan quality is poor and not diagnostic) as this is retained and integrated in your patient record. We ask that you bring a copy or have the referring doctor email/mail a current panoramic (if available) to validate recent history so that our office will not charge you or your insurance company for this service.  NOTE: a panoramic will be charged out if a current one is not received by our office; it is the PATIENT'S responsibility to obtain this panoramic x-ray.

•   Photo Identification  - Driver's License or Permit for those over the age of 15.  If the patient is in college it is helpful to have a copy of their Student ID as insurance sometimes requests this information.
