An Interview with Dr. Leibowitz

Patient Forms

To help make your appointment more efficient, you can download our new patient forms online and print them at home. Simply complete the forms at your convenience and bring them with you to your first appointment. You will also be asked to complete a medical history form. We ask that you are completely forthcoming about your health history, as certain conditions and medications can interfere with some dental treatments. At subsequent appointments, be sure to inform Dr. Leibowitz of any changes in your health so that he can update your records and provide the most appropriate dental treatments to suit your unique needs.


Our office policy requires that you pay at the time of service. Dr. Leibowitz accepts most dental insurance plans, but please check with our office before your appointment to see if we accept yours. We are happy to file your claims for you, and our friendly office staff always goes the extra mile to help you maximize your benefits and answer any questions you have about your coverage.

Your First Exam

Dr. Leibowitz takes a very personal approach to dentistry, which means he’ll spend a great deal of time getting to know you as an individual. Patients usually appreciate this time to communicate their particular concerns, which may include their personal feelings and prior dental experiences. He’ll also talk to you extensively about your oral and general health so he can provide you with the most efficient and beneficial treatments. Your examination will consist of digital X-rays, which emit roughly 80 percent less radiation than traditional radiographs, and a visual examination of your teeth and gums. Dr. Leibowitz also screens for oral cancer. If he discovers any dental issues, he will thoroughly explain your diagnosis and the treatments he recommends. Dr. Leibowitz will not proceed with planning your treatment until he knows that you understand your diagnosis and agree with his recommendations.

Your Dental Cleaning

Dr. Leibowitz will provide your dental cleaning during your appointments. For many practices, a hygienist is on staff to clean teeth before the dentist steps in and provides a review. Our office allows you to spend time with your dentist throughout the visit, as Dr. Leibowitz is involved in all aspects of your visit. By taking on cleanings himself, he makes himself your partner for the entirety of your dental journey and has an opportunity to fully support you in protecting your oral health.
