Consultation


We believe that an unhurried, thorough examination is crucial for optimal dental care and good communication. Use of intra-oral cameras, digital X-rays, DVD-ROM patient education are all technologies that allow us to better diagnose dental diseases and disorders while enabling patients to better understand and see their needs for themselves.

Our goal is to listen first so that we can understand all of your concerns and needs. We spend as much time as necessary to explain all treatment options appropriate to your specific needs. Lastly, an understanding of fees, insurance co-pays, (if applicable), and payment options are explained and reviewed fully.

Complimentary SMILE Consultation Policy

Evaluating and Choosing a provider for your dental care, especially regarding cosmetic procedures and / or implants, is an extremely personal decision.   As you gather information and opinions in the process of making your decision, you should not have to pay for the proposals that are offered to you.  In that,   we respect your desire to make an informed choice, we offer our initial consultation free of charge with the following considerations:

  • Our Basic Policy:  “Initial Consultation is Complimentary.”  Dr. Carlos Parajon will perform an examination and will verbally answer any questions that you may have about your current condition and your potential care.  If you desire, he will also provide a written proposal for each of your treatment options, as well as file any insurance pre-authorizations that may be indicated.  There will be no fees charged for these documents. Consultation and examination of Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD, TMJ) or examination for dental specific pain ("tooth ache") are not included in our complimentary consultation program.

  • X-rays:  Ideally, you should bring a full set of individual ("peri-apical") x-rays that are as recent as possible.   Additionally, you should have a Panoramic X-ray of your upper and lower jaws ("Panorex").  This is especially important if you currently have, or are considering, implants, dentures, or partial dentures.  If you desire, we will process a direct request for any X-rays that may be on file with your dentist on your behalf.   If you do not have any available X-rays, we will do our best to give you useful information based on clinical examination.  If it's agreeable to you, we will take the minimum X-rays needed to appropriately diagnose your condition and give you meaningful recommendations.  These X-rays will be charged at our usual and customary fees and, at your discretion, will be filed in our records or given to you to keep.  If you have insurance, we will process all documents to help you receive maximum benefits.  Please keep in mind that we will never initiate any fee-for-service activity without discussing it with you first.
  • Second Opinions:  Our complimentary consultation policy does apply to second opinions.  However, please recognize that we can only offer a verbal second opinion in this manner.  Written reports are subject to cost and professional time.  If you desire such written reports, we will discuss their cost with you during your complimentary consultation.

  • Waiver of Report Fees:  Should you choose to pursue treatment at our office, any written reports that were not required by you or your representative as part of a legal matter   (except for treatment proposals, which are complimentary, anyway) that had been charged will be credited back at the conclusion of your treatment with us.

Our office is an extremely "people oriented" office.   We have crafted our complimentary consultation policy to provide you with the best opportunity to answer your questions and to "get a feel" as to your comfort level with our staff and with Dr. Carlos Parajon.  If you have any questions whatsoever, please do not hesitate to give Blossoming Smiles at 949. 216.9090.   Finally, if you have a few general questions you would like to ask Dr. Parajon directly, he will be happy to come to the phone or, if he's providing care, he will call you back as soon as possible.

You are invited to make a SMILE Consultation appointment at no charge to make sure that you are comfortable with the doctor, staff and our facility. At this time you may tour the office, meet the doctor and the staff with no obligation or pressure to discuss your concerns or needs. You may look at our uses of technology and inspect our state-of-the-art sterilization area and protocols used to ensure safe dental care.
