Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Rarely, the surgery will be performed the same day as the consultation. A complex medical history and treatment plan is given at the evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment will be scheduled.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable. These items can be emailed to [email protected]
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, please provide the updated dental card or information when you check in for your appointment. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
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 has taken x-rays you may request that they forward them to our office. Send to [email protected] 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.
