Additional Patient Information
Should an emergency occur, and you are a patient of record, please call our office at 703-288-3570 and we will make every effort to accommodate you at the earliest convenience. If our office is closed, you will be directed to contact Dr. Carpio to obtain emergency advice or care.
Your appointment time is reserved especially for you. If you cannot keep your appointment, please give us at least 24 hours in advance.
We take patient safety very seriously at our office, and adhere to the highest professional standards of infection control, cleanliness, sterilization, and radiation control. Our staff regularly attends safety seminars and is quite knowledgeable on the latest techniques.
Pre-Medication with Antibiotics:
Patients with certain medical conditions may be asked to pre-medicate with antibiotics prior to their dental appointment. We do this with your safety in mind. Please inform us if you have a condition that might need pre-medication.
Pre and Post Treatment Instructions:
Before and after treatment, home care and medication instructions will be thoroughly reviewed. You will be given these printed instructions for your convenience. Regardless, we are always available for any questions you may have.
Patient education is a major component of our approach to treatment. It is very important that you be completely informed of your condition, and that all treatment options have been explained to you. We spend a great amount of time in patient education, and making sure that our patients understand what is their next step in treatment.
During dental procedures we make a special effort to ensure that our patients feel as comfortable as possible. If you feel the need for sedation, please inform Dr. Carpio, and we will ensure that appropriate accommodations are made for you.
