Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Sometimes, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral slip and any X-rays if applicable.
- Please contact our office to complete and submit Registration and Health History forms on our Hippa privacy compliant website.
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).
Patients who are pregnant must provide a release for treatment from their physician prior to treatment.
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), we may request that they forward them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility. We do require a new X-ray image to be taken in our office at the time of consultation or treatment.
