The first visit is key to the remainder of your treatment at our practice. The initial consultation is our opportunity to thoroughly examine your condition, identify your treatment goals, and develop an individualized treatment plan. It’s also your chance to ask any questions you have, learn about your anesthesia options, and do a preliminary review of your pre- and post-operative instructions.
We ask that all patients arrive 15–20 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. This cushion allows you the time you need to fill out any necessary paperwork. Some of these forms can be found on our website, and you can fill these out in advance to save time at your first visit. It’s also important to bring the following items with you to your consultation:
- Insurance information (if applicable)
- List of current medications
- X-rays from your physician, dentist, orthodontist, etc.
- Surgical referral slip (if applicable)
- Valid medical/dental card
- Photo ID
A parent or legal guardian must accompany patients under the age of 18 to all appointments.
If you need help obtaining your X-rays or medical records, please let us know ahead of your appointment so we can assist you in preparing for your consultation.
