For Out of Town Patients

Painting by Dr. M. Johnson Hagood

Dr. Hagood has a large and devoted clientele who travel from all over Florida, other parts of the United States, and even Europe to experience his skillful dental treatments. When you require the absolute best in dental care, please contact our office for priority scheduling.

Complex cosmetic and restorative dental procedures can be delivered in a timely manner. In certain cases, our dental ceramist can create beautiful finished results within one week.

Conveniently located in Southern Florida, Dr. Hagood’s dental practice is an easy drive from Fort Lauderdale International Airport, Miami International Airport, and Orlando International Airport. Please contact us for more information about your travel needs.

The Visiting Patient Experience

Here is a scenario that has worked out well for other visiting patients. You can travel to our office with your planned arrival time before noon on Thursday. Dr. Hagood and his staff will perform a personal interview and review of your dental and medical history. A comprehensive examination, including digital imaging, radiography, tooth-by-tooth and periodontal examinations, and diagnostic casts of your teeth, will follow. After evaluating the results of the examinations, Dr. Hagood will be able to provide a treatment plan, including treatment options and fees.

If you are ready to proceed with your comprehensive restorative or cosmetic dentistry treatment, the treatment will commence the very next day. Friday and also Saturday, if required, will be solely devoted to your dental needs. A final check of the temporary or permanent restorations will be done on Monday morning. For some extensive porcelain restoration cases, a second visit in the following two to four weeks may be required.

For your comfort, Dr. Hagood often prescribes a sedative to be taken early on the day of your major treatment appointment. In such cases, limousine transportation to and from our office will be provided for you.
