Experienced, Dedicated, and Modern Dentist with over 15 Years of Experience

First Time Visit to Our Philadelphia Dental Office

Here at Smile Maker, we proudly provide the finest quality dental care and personal treatments to individuals and families in Philadelphia. Your first initial appointment will begin with a consultation with Dr. Karagodsky, who will evaluate your oral health, and explain your treatment options. In some occasions, treatments and procedures can be executed the same day as your consultation, however, in more complex dental cases Dr. Karagodsky will lay out a treatment plan for your procedure.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

  •  Your referral slip and any X-rays, if applicable. 
  •  A list of medications you are presently taking. 
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.


  • 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.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e. antibiotics, for pre-med.)


In the case that your previous dentist has taken x-rays (within a 6 month time frame),  you may request that they are forwarded 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.

We accept many types of Dental Insurance. To be confident, you should call our dental office at 215-969-2016 to find out whether or not we take the type of insurance you have.
