Your initial appointment will consist of an examination and consultation where your diagnosis and treatment options will be discussed. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation, but normally a surgical appointment is made for another day to allow the appropriate time for you.
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 current medical history including any medications you are currently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring information for group and policy verification.
All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
A pre-operative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for all patients.
If you anticipate having surgery and anesthesia on the first visit, you must not eat or drink anything for six (6) hours prior to your appointment and you must have an adult driver with you to drive you home after the procedure.
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 x-rays are necessary, they will be taken at our facility.
