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 may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
A preoperative consultation and oral examination is necessary for all 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 will need to be in our office prior to your appointment.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring all ID cards and necessary information. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
Please inform 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., osteoporosis medications, heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant medications/blood thinners, etc.).
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all visits.
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.
