YOUR First Visit
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 in most cases it is preferable to schedule a second appointment for the surgical procedure due to each patient’s unique medical history and treatment plan.
For your convenience, our Patient Registration Forms can be completed online and submitted to us electronically prior to your visit. You can access these forms here: NEW PATIENT FORMS
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable.
- 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.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
Pre-operative consultations and physical examinations are mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. When undergoing a procedure with sedation, please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery, and make sure that you are accompanied by an adult escort who can 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 forward them to our office. Most x-rays are digital, and can be easily sent to our office electronically prior to your visit. If there is not enough time for your dentist to forward your radiographs, please pick them up and bring a copy to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our office during your consultation.
