Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. After a treatment plan has been determined, a second appointment will be made to provide treatment or follow up.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip from your dentist and any x-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical and/or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms or identification cards. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 19 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit. Legal guardians MUST present custodial paperwork.
A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
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 currently taking any medications (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
If your dentist or physician 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.
