Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation & exam explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the first appointment. 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.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary information and/or insurance cards. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
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 all patients undergoing surgery. 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 forward or e-mail them to our office at [email protected] If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office or let us know, and we will try to make arrangements with your referring doctor. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
