First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation during which the doctor will discuss your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan usually will require an initial evaluation with a second appointment scheduled 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 x-rays (if applicable).
  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • Complete medical or dental insurance information. This will save time and allow us to process claims quickly and efficiently.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at the consultation and surgery visits.

A pre-operative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing intravenous sedation or general 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 medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, bone density medication, etc.).

X-Rays

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, we will gladly take them at our facility.
