Prior to your initial appointment our office will send Health Forms and a detailed Questionnaire surveying your health symptoms. You will also be asked to write a list and/or a Narrative of both your dental history, as well as your medical history. Please be sure to bring these completed forms and your narrative with you to your initial appointment or even better, please send your completed forms back to us prior to your appointment. Please DO NOT wait to complete your forms when you arrive at our office!
Please read the article included in your new patient packet, “You Look Like an Egg to Me.” Watch the video on EAV testing. Acupuncture points on the toes will be tested, so ladies, please wear socks, not pantyhose. Also, please refrain from wearing any perfumes or aftershave, cologne, etc. – many of the Health Center patients are chemically sensitive. If you have had any x-rays taken within the last 12 months, please have them forwarded to our office prior to your appointment. If they are digital x-rays, you may ask the dental office sending them to email these images, well in advance of your appointment.
Please allow Extra Time in case of traffic. Dr. Breiner does not like to rush, and he wants to have all the time necessary for your initial appointment. Before you see Dr. Breiner, an assistant will take cavity-detecting x-rays as well as a 3D scan of your head. This 3D scan will help in looking for hidden infections, evaluating your sinuses and nasal cavity. The scan will also help in the evaluation of your airway; many people have an undiagnosed breathing disorder including obstructive sleep apnea. The scan is also helpful is assessing neck alignment. The assistant will also check your blood pressure and heart rate.
Dr. Breiner will meet with you in his private office to go over your dental and medical health history. The purpose of this conversation, that can typically last 20 – 50 minutes, is for Dr. Breiner to get to know why you are here, and what your priorities are. He is also playing “dental detective,” trying to fit all the pieces together.
Forty points on the fingers and toes are tested to determine the main imbalances. Dr. Breiner is also further refining his thoughts on a remedy for the non-physical aspect of your overall health. Dr. Breiner may, at this visit, test your root canals to see if they are having an adverse impact on your health. Also, he may check to see if cavitations are present. If you are coming to have your mercury silver fillings removed, it will be determined if your system is ready to safely remove your amalgam fillings. After the initial visit, patients will usually leave with some homeopathics to address a specific toxin such as heavy metals, pesticides, etc., as well as with a homeopathic remedy for general well-being. If a treatment plan at this time is indicated, Dr. Breiner will study your case, and you will be called. If further testing or evaluation is necessary, that will be explained, and if you are being treated to reduce a level of toxins, e.g., pesticides, a follow up visit will be scheduled in approximately 4 weeks to determine if the toxic level is now down to an acceptable amount.
We are sure you will appreciate your initial visit as patients tell us that this appointment is far more thorough and unique than what they have ever experienced. We look forward to meeting you and helping you on your journey to better health.
