Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery may be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may 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:
- Your surgical referral slip and any X-rays, if applicable
- A list of medications you are currently taking
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring your insurance card
- Drivers license/identification card.
Having these items will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian 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 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 be forwarded to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick up the X-rays and bring them with you to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
