Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Often, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation; however, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require 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, a list of medications you are presently taking, your correct insurance billing information and insurance cards, and photo ID.
All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Patients who wish to undergo IV anesthesia for surgery must have nothing to eat or drink six hours prior to surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home. See Pre-Op Instructions.
Please alert 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., heart medications, aspirin, blood thinners, bone density medications, etc.).
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If additional scans are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
