Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please provide 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 dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- If possible, please pre-register with our office by filling out our secure online Patient Registration Form and click the Complete and Send button at the bottom to automatically send us your information. If you prefer to bring the completed form with you to the office, simply click the download button and print the form. For returning patients, if you have not been to the office in a year, we ask that you please register again.
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under the age of 18 at the consultation.
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 on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e. antibiotics for pre-medication.)
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays and would like us to review them, they may forward them to our office. We take digital x-rays at our office for more detailed examination.
