Your initial appointment will consist of a complete consultation including new radiographs (x-rays), explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, certain biological considerations might require more appointments to provide proper complete treatment.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral slip and any recent X-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary identification card. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.
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 on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e antibiotics, for pre-medication.)
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), you may request that they forward them to our office. We always take our own x-rays in order to view the condition of your tooth/teeth in their present state. This is necessary for your protection, as well as for us to provide the best quality of care for you.
