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.
Please assist us by providing the following information prior to your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip and any radiographs if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- Medical or dental insurance. Our policy is to process all paperwork prior to the patient’s arrival thereby requiring online registration. We need insurance information before the patient arrives so that it can be verified.
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. Please do not eat or drink six 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.).
You may preregister with our office by taking our online patient interview. You will be presented with an interactive question and answer presentation that facilitates form completion. This interview system enables a more accurate form completion process. This presentation will save you time! It eliminates the need for you to fill out traditional health care forms in our office. When you are ready to begin, click the “Online Registration Form” button below. A simple question and answer process will commence. After you have completed the interview, the patient information collected is securely encrypted and sent to our office.
On your first visit to our office, we will have your completed form available for your signature.

If your dentist or physician has taken radiographs (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 can be taken at our facility.
