You may require an initial consultation appointment to allow the Doctor to assess your needs, explain your diagnosis and treatment options, particularly if you have a complex medical history. The surgical appointment would be scheduled after the initial appointment in that case. In many cases you will be able to schedule your first visit for the surgery recommended by your dentist.
We recommend you complete registration forms prior to you first visit, available under the patient information tab.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation or surgery:
- Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable. Most often we would need a current Panoramic xray. We can take one if your dentist does not have one.
- A list of medications you are presently taking. Contact information for current medical doctors.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the cards if available or any necessary completed forms. We understand that many companies do not issue cards. We would need to know the covered individual’s employer, date of birth, insurance carrier and sometimes social security number to be able to help you determine insurance benefits. Having this information will save time and allow us to help you process any claims
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation or surgery visit.
If your dentist or physician has appropriate x-rays you may request that they forward them to our office at [email protected] prior to your appointment. Certain Xray types are needed for the Dr. to evaluate specific conditions so we often need to complete those here at the time of your 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 currently taking any medications (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, bone density medications, etc.).
