We appreciate your decision to partner with Council Oak Perio.
We really do view working with our patients like a partnership. After all, without your participation in correct maintenance and oral health techniques, we won’t succeed. Our friendly staff is committed to creating a periodontal experience that is as comfortable and pleasant for you as possible.
Your initial visit provides us a chance to get to know you.
More importantly, this initial visit gives you a chance to know us. When you visit Council Oak Perio for evaluation and treatment, you are not simply a patient…you are family! During your initial visit, our staff will complete an in-depth medical and dental health history. This important information helps us to accurately evaluate your current periodontal health status. Additionally, this allows us to treat you in the safest manner possible.
No treatment is rendered during your initial appointment.

X-Rays – to accurately diagnose your health, we require current Xrays and/or CT scans.
If your referring dentist has taken Xrays in the last six months, please forward them to us. If you do not have recent images, or if additional imaging is needed for diagnosis and treatment, that’s not a problem; Dr. Bingham will take the necessary imaging.
Our periodontists are available Monday through Thursday to see you.
Please allow 45-60 minutes for your initial visit. We will do our best to schedule your visit as soon as our calendar permits. If you have severe pain or need emergency care, we will do everything we can to see you as soon as possible.
We request that you give us 48-hour notice if you need to cancel an appointment.
This courtesy allows us to reschedule your time for another patient.
NOTE: Patients under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
