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 will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
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 clinical examination are mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. A surgery date can be scheduled once the consultation and an examination have been completed. Please remember to have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your scheduled surgery. You will also need an adult to stay at the office during your procedure and also be able to drive you home.
Please alert the office if you have any medical conditions that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, history of rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medications (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, bisphosphinates, 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, you may pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
