New patient paperwork can be completed online prior to your initial appointment. Should you be unable or unwilling to complete your paperwork online, we require that you arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment.
Your initial appointment will consist of a comprehensive oral evaluation, thorough review of health history, review of radio-graphic images followed by an explanation of your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed in the same day as the consultation, but is at the discretion of the surgeon. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan usually requires a second appointment to provide treatment on another day. No patient will ever be sedated the day of the initial consultation.
Please assist us by providing the following information by the time of your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip and any applicable x-rays.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical and/or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms and copy or original cards along with a government issued form of identification. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at EVERY visit.
A preoperative consultation and examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink six hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
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 medications (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.
