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.
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
- Medical and/or dental insurance information for claims processing
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will need an adult to drive you home.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medications (prescribed or over the counter).
X-Rays: If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays you may request that they forward them to our office or you may bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, we will take them in our office.
