First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. You will need to preregister online by completing our online patient registration forms. Occasionally, surgery can be performed 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.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

  • Your surgical referral slip and any diagnostic x-rays, if available, are required.
  • A list of medications you are presently taking including supplements.
  • 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 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.

On the day of your surgery please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. However, you may have water up to two hours before your surgery. A responsible person, age 18 or over,must be present for your surgical appointment to begin. This person must remain in the office and drive you home after your 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 medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).

X-Rays

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, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
