Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation to explain your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed at the initial appointment, however, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation appointment and a second appointment to provide the treatment.

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 (general) anesthesia for their surgery. On the day of surgery, please have nothing to eat or drink for at least four hours prior to your surgery. Please arrange for an adult to drive you home if you are undergoing general anesthesia as you will be unable to drive that day. Your driver will need to stay at our facility during your procedure.
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. 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.
