Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Often, surgery can be done 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 X-rays if applicable
– A list of medications you are presently taking
– If you have medical or dental insurance, please bring all insurance cards-both medical and dental-to your appointment.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian during the consultation visit.
Please do not eat or drink anything 8 hours prior to your surgery. If you take prescription medications regularly, you should take them with a sip of water the morning of surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
Please alert the office prior to surgery if you have a medical condition that may be of concern (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.), or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
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.
