New Patient Information
On your first visit, you will undergo a comprehensive oral examination including a full series of digital x-rays, an oral cancer screening, TMJ analysis, bite analysis, periodontal evaluation, and a functional and cosmetic evaluation of your teeth. If you like, you can schedule a visit with the hygienist at the same appointment.
After your examination you will meet with Dr. Traub to review your evaluation and discuss your needs, options, possibilities, desires, questions and concerns. Together you will develop a personalized plan for your dental health.
Dr. Traub works closely with many of the leading specialists in all disciplines of dentistry in the Coral Springs, Ft. Lauderdale, and Boca Raton areas. When necessary, he can recommend one of these specialists for you with complete confidence that they will provide you with the highest standard of care.
For Your Comfort
We respect your time and make every effort to ensure that you are seen promptly at your appointed time.
We understand that not all patients are at ease when visiting the dentist, so we provide comfort measures such as televisions and headphones in each room. Movies are available upon request. We offer warm blankets for patients who may become chilly during their exam or treatment. Let us know if you need anything.
We also offer oral sedation dentistry. Ask us if this option is right for you.
For Your Safety
To assure your safety we adhere to the most stringent protocols, using modern equipment and up-to-date standards. We meet or exceed OSHA guidelines.
Infection Control Procedures Include:
- Wearing gloves, masks and protective eyewear.
- Washing hands before and after each patient contact.
- Changing gloves after each patient contact.
- Sterilizing dental instruments after each use.
- Disinfecting the treatment room and equipment after each patient use.

We use state-of-the art digital radiography, which uses computer technology to take and develop your x-rays immediately onto a computer screen. There they can be enlarged or enhance for improved diagnosis and patient education. You are exposed to 50-90% less radiation than with standard x-ray equipment, and there are no processing chemicals to harm the environment.
We understand that dental healthcare can be expensive. We will do everything we can to assist you with financial arrangements.
We accept all major credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. You may also pay by cash or personal check. For extended payment options, we partner with CareCredit financial services. They offer several convenient options with low monthly payments for dental treatments of $1,000 to $25,000.
