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 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 presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the member identification cards or necessary information. This will save time and allow us to help you verify benefits and process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the initial consultation and on the day of surgery.
A preoperative consultation and examination is mandatory for patients undergoing anesthesia for surgery. If you are undergoing I.V. sedation or general anesthesia, you may not haveanything to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
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.
