Your First Visit
Your initial appointment typically consists of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. This would typically be single extractions with local anesthesia. However, a preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing type IV anesthesia during the surgery. Procedures requiring sedation and patients with a complex treatment plan and/or extensive medical history will require a consultation appointment and a subsequent appointment for the procedure. 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, etc.).
Please assist us by providing the following patient information at the time of your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable
- A list of medications you are currently taking
- Names and phone numbers of your dentist and physician
- Dental and medical insurance information or cards
Minors: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian during the consultation appointment.
X-Rays: 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. This will save time and permit us to help you as soon as possible. If additional x-rays are needed, they can be taken at our facility.
We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting. Our oral surgeons provide many types of dental services, and various circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure. Emergency cases can also arise and cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
