First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may 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:

  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, please bring relevant detailed information. 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.

For patients undergoing general anesthesia: A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory. Importantly, one must have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need to make arrangements for a reliable adult to drive you home. Ride-shares are not permitted.

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, etc.).


If your referring dentist has taken x-rays, we will liaise with your dentist and request that they forward them to our office. If we deem additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
