Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Generally, 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 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 dental insurance, please have this information available at the time your appointment is made. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- Your completed Patient Information Forms.
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.) 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-med.)
We must take our own x-rays for our digital records. Therefore, it is not necessary to bring your general dentist’s x-rays; however, if your general dentist wants us to see a previous x-ray taken at his/her office, please bring those to your appointment.
