Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require a full clinical evaluation prior to scheduling treatment.
Please allow us to better assist you by providing the following information at the time of your visit:
- 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 cards with you. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
A preoperative examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV sedation. Please have nothing to eat or drink 8 hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home and remain inside the office for the duration of the procedure.
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, etc.).
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. Or, if it is convenient, you may retrieve them by hand and bring them along to your exam. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
