Patient Information

Your first visit

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

  • Your referral form (if you were referred by your general dentist) and any xrays if applicable.
  • A list of medications you are currently taking.
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms (contact our office for these forms). This 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 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 have allergies (latex, medications, etc)

If your dentist 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 for your consultation. If additional digital X-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
