Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. In most cases a second appointment to provide treatment on another day will be made. Medical history and consent forms will be reviewed, and financial information will be provided.
Please assist us by bringing 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.
- Your medical and dental insurance information, as this will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- Your printed and completed patient forms found at our online forms page.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age should be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
A preoperative consultation and physical examination is needed for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink six 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 (e.g., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (e.g., 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. If there is not enough time for forwarding, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
