Your first appointment
Your initial appointment with us is a consultation. We will get to meet with you, learn about your health and discuss treatment options which best suit your needs. There will be paperwork to fill out before you meet with the doctor, so please arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. Our financial coordinator will be glad to explain your insurance coverage and cost for treatment.
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 preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery.
The day of treatment, please arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled surgery time. Our staff will review scheduled treatment and address any concerns or questions you may have.
Please remember if you are having IV Sedation, you must have nothing to eat or drink six hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult who will be able to drive you here, wait for you in the office during the length of the procedure and who will be able to drive you home.
Depending on your particular surgery, you may be asked to return to our office for a follow-up appointment. We care about you and want to make sure you are recovering well!

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, 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.
