Your First Visit
Your first appointment at our office will consist of a consultation. This is necessary so that we can review your medical history and analyze your x-rays. Then, we will provide details on your diagnosis and a complete treatment plan will be discussed. A second appointment will be made for your treatment at a later date.
If you have any questions pertaining to your first visit that are not answered by the information below, please contact us.
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, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: 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 our patients.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to your appointment (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking 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.
