Your first visit will include a pre-surgical evaluation with a doctor about your diagnosis and options for treatment plans. Depending on a patient’s medical history and the complexity of the treatment plan, an evaluation and second appointment may be required for providing treatment on another visit. On occasion, a patient may be able to undergo surgery on the same day as the consultation.
Please bring the following information to your consultation appointment:
- Any x-rays and surgical referral note, if applicable
- A list of your current medications
- Completed forms for medical or dental insurance
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany a patient under the age of 18 at the consultation visit.
For patients who will undergo IV anesthesia, please do not eat or drink anything for six hours prior to your surgery. Please arrange for an adult to drive you home afterward. Some medical conditions and medications may be a concern prior to surgery and it is important for you to notify the office in advance. If you have a medical condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc., or are taking medication such as aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, heart medications, etc., please alert us. If your x-rays have been taken at your dentist or physician’s office, it will be helpful if you request that they forward them to our office. In the event that there isn’t enough time for the x-rays to be forwarded, please get the x-rays directly from your dentist or physician and bring them to our office. Additional x-rays can be taken at our facility, if needed.
