Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Surgery can often be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may 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 as well as all doctors names and phone numbers.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring a card or a copy of your insurance information. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- Please visit the Patient Registration link provided on this website to complete all necessary paperwork prior to arrival at our office. This well help our office to better assist you upon arrival.
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 or physician has taken x-rays you may request that they email or mail them to our office. If they can not be emailed and the appointment does not allow enough time for them to be mailed, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary they can be taken at our facility.
