Your scheduled appointment time has been reserved especially for you. We require 24-hour notice should you need to cancel your time with us.
YOUR FIRST VISIT:
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Complex medical history or treatment plans will require a preoperative evaluation. Preoperative consultation and physical examination is also mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery.
Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (artificial heart valves and joints, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medications (blood thinners, bone density medications, etc.).
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at the consultation visit.
WHAT TO BRING:
Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable.
A list of medications you are presently taking.
If you have medical or dental insurance; please bring copies of insurance cards or necessary subscriber information. This will allow us to help process any claims.
Working With Your Family Dentist
Our office serves as an extension of your family dentist’s office to provide specialized care. We have made a commitment to work with your doctor to provide you with the highest quality care. Because we recognize the importance of good communication between doctors, we make every effort to ensure that your doctor is informed of your treatment at all times.
Perhaps most importantly, doctors refer their patients to our office because of their confidence in both doctor’s extensive training and high quality, sensitive care provided to their patients. Using the most advanced technologies allows us to better serve our patients.
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.
Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art, full-cranial cone-beam CT (computed tomography) technology that provides highly accurate 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning and treatment of oral surgery. This technology provides full-cranial, highly accurate 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning and treatment of orthodontics, implantology, TMJ analysis, airway assessment, oral and orthognathic surgery and other dental procedures. Undistorted, anatomically correct views of the jaws, teeth and facial bones along with cross-sectional (bucco-lingual), axial, coronal, sagittal, cephalometric and panoramic views are easily generated. Three-dimensional images enable a level of anatomical accuracy and patient care not possible with 2-D technologies.
With the addition of cone-beam CT technology in our office, our practice is committed to providing innovative, high-quality, patient care.
