When you or your dentist contact our expert staff to make an appointment, we will evaluate your symptoms and determine whether a consultation or treatment would best accommodate your needs. Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, your initial appointment may consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. A complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your 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.
- Our patient forms are available under “Patient Registration.” In order to reduce your time in our office, feel free to download and complete the forms prior to arriving.
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.
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.); if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.); or require medication prior to dental treatment (i.e antibiotics for pre-med prophylaxis).
If your referring dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), you may request that they forward them to our office. Since a diagnosis is more accurate with multiple images taken at different angles, we may request to take additional x-rays as well as a 3-D image (CBCT).
