Welcome New Patients
What to Expect during your initial consultation
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and probable treatment. Generally, surgery can be done 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.
What to Bring on the day of your appointment:
- 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 completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- Please fill out your patient registration forms prior to your appointment.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
A pre-operative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV general anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink 8 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.)
If your dentist or physician has taken panorex or 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.
