Dr. Ratti Handa welcomes children and adult patients to join our dental care family in Acton, MA. Dr. Handa is committed to the overall health and wellness of our patients and practices Airway Centered Dentistry which serves as the foundation of your care in our office.
Airway Dentistry focuses on the health and function of the airway as it facilitates normal breathing. Sleep disorders, bite problems and upper airway restriction syndrome have been identified as underlying causes of many symptoms affecting the quality of life in both children and adults.
A consultation with Dr. Handa to discuss your concerns and evaluate the structure and condition of your airway and overall oral health can begin your journey towards your best quality of life and the enjoyment of essential rest, deep breathing and a comfortable smile.
Your First Visit to Dr. Ratti Handa
Your initial appointment will about getting to know each other so that we can be informed about your goals and talk about your treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be performed on the same day as the consultation. However, a medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- X-Rays (if applicable)
- A list of your current medical prescriptions
- If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
About your first Visit
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc).
If your dentist has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
