Patient Information

Initial Consultation

X-Ray

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.

A pre-operative consultation and physical examination is required for all patients undergoing IV sedation or general anesthesia for surgery.

It will consist of a review of your medical history and an examination to determine your diagnosis and treatment options. At that time we will be able to schedule your surgical appointment. We will also provide you with an estimate of cost and will help you determine your insurance coverage.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

  • Your surgical referral slip from your dentist or physician and any X-rays if applicable
  • A list of medications you are presently taking
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary information. 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.

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, artificial joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, blood thinners, etc.)
