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, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day. A preoperative consultation and examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery.
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
- Any medical or dental insurance cards if applicable
- A picture ID
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, etc.).
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
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.
