Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed on 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.
When you call our office, we request your dental insurance information. We will contact the insurance company on your behalf to find the most up-to-date dental insurance information. Our office accepts many dental insurance companies including Delta Dental, Metlife, Guardian, Cigna, and many more.
We also request you pre-register via our HIPPA compliant online portal to help make your experience seamless.
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 medications you are presently taking.
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 are mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
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. Our staff can also call your dental provider to request a digital film. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
