First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of an exam and overview explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed on the same day. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment for a later date.

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

  • Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable.
  • A list of all medications you are currently taking.
  • To better serve you, please bring your medical and dental insurance cards with you. 

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.

A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. When you are scheduled for your appointment with anesthesia, please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery; including water. You will also need an adult to drive you home and remain with you for the day.

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 medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).


If your dentist or physician 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. If additional films are necessary, they will be taken at our facility.
