Forms will be sent to you ahead of your appointment. Please fill them prior to your visit so that we can maximize your appointment time. If you do not have the chance to complete them ahead of time, you may come early to your appointment and finish them before your scheduled appointment time.

Please let our front office know if you need assistance filling out your forms.

First Visit


When you first meet with our doctors, you learn very quickly that their interests in our patients go beyond simply “fixing a broken tooth.” Dr. Aver and Dr. Ganzman will take the time to get to know you and the state of your overall health. They will go over your medical history and address any and all specific questions you have and/or provide consultation related to a certain issue you may be experiencing.

Whether you realize it or not, an examination from our doctors is most likely very different from what you have experienced from traditional dentists in the past. As part of the examination, several screenings and evaluations will be performed. This involves examining your head and neck for possible abnormalities and cancer by touching your neck muscle, salivary glands and lymph nodes. Our doctors also perform a craniosacral evaluation, which is done to release any tension in the jaw, bones and teeth, restoring a natural balance to the patient’s mouth, hard palate, and temporomandibular joints through gentle touches and very light pressure.

A noninvasive Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) exam will also be done. Our doctors will analyze your left and right Temporomandibular Joints (Jaw Joints), since according to the teachings of the Oriental medicine they are considered to be one of the major energy points of the body.

Your oral exam will include oral cancer screen , tongue screening , and microscopic bacterial evaluation.

A traditional exam of the teeth is done; noting missing teeth and existing restorations. Then a comprehensive gum exam and evaluation is performed; measure the periodontal pockets (gum pocket) around your teeth to diagnose and detect possible gum disease. Finally, using an intraoral camera we will analyze your teeth using magnification and will take any necessary digital x-rays.

Dr. Aver and Dr. Ganzman take the time to discuss in detail wellness and treatment options with our patients. They always works with you to develop the most appropriate treatment plan that is inline with your health philosophy and needs.

If you have any questions, please contact our office at 847-998-5100.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
