Dr. Todd R. Levine and his associates at Aspire® Family Dental have a very diverse and extensive amount of training in all aspects of general dentistry. Collectively, they have many years of experience which makes this is a very unique general dental practice. All phases of dentistry are offered here. We have the most advanced technology that dentistry has to offer! In this office, modern dentistry is the rule, not the exception.
There is a lot of very useful information in this New Patient Document. PLEASE take the time to read everything! Dr. Levine believes in making sure all patients are informed to the fullest extent. In order to make it easier for those who would like to electronically submit the New Patient Form online; the entire Document was split into 2 Separate Sections. The First Section (pg. 1-7) is more information based. Dr. Levine would like you to know about many of the fantastic benefits of being a patient at this very modern office. The entire staff is very confident that you will find this practice to be the most unique that you will ever see! The Second Section (pgs. 8-12) contains the New Patient Form which can be electronically submitted.
Since we are screening for conditions that may actually save your life or contribute to failure in your dental treatment, we have included screening questions for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD). For patients who have been referred here from other dental or medical offices or are experiencing symptoms related to OSA and/or TMD, we have either included more specialized forms (or you can click on the below links to either fill them out electronically or print them). We want your treatment to be very successful and have the best overall health! We know everyone hates filling out forms. However, PLEASE take your time and answer the questions as best you can. The answers you provide can help us potentially greatly improve your chances of a successful outcome with your overall dental treatment and may even help us save your life!
