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 an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment.

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 presently taking and any known drug allergies.
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. 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 at all office visits.

A pre-operative consultation and physical examination is often required for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink 6 hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult present to remain in the office during your procedure and to drive you home. Your surgery may be rescheduled if these guidelines have not been followed.

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, pregnancy etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, birth control pills, 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, they can be taken at our facility.
