Welcome to our practice!

Our entire staff appreciates the opportunity to provide you with a pleasant experience while you are here.

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 bring the following to your appointment:

  •  Driver’s License
  • Medical & Dental Insurance Cards
  • Referral slip from dentist
  • Any necessary radiographs
  • A list of medications with dosages you are taking

Required forms:

The purpose of these forms is to assist us in providing you with the highest level of care.  We understand that you may have completed similar forms at your dentist’s or physician’s office, however we do ask that you take your time to carefully read and accurately fill out these forms. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask for assistance.

The following forms must be completed prior to your appointment. You can download the forms by selecting the “Online Forms” link in the left side menu. If you prefer to have our office send you the forms by mail, please contact us.

  • Health Questionnaire
  • Insurance Policy/Financial Agreement
  • (HIPAA) Use & Disclosure of Confidential Health Information

Medical History:

Those taking medications should bring the name and dosage of the drug(s) at your appointment time. Please notify us by phone if you are a diabetic on medication, have a history of rheumatic fever or heart murmur, or are taking an anticoagulant (blood thinner).

Intravenous Sedation:

If you prefer I.V. sedation (sleeping) for the surgery, refrain from the intake of food or liquid (even water) for six hours prior to the appointment. A responsible adult must accompany you to drive you home and remain with you for several hours or until fully recovered from the sedation. Medications prescribed by your physician should be taken with a small amount of water unless informed otherwise by our office.

Inhalation Sedation:

If you prefer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for sedation for the surgery, limit your oral intake to a light meal up to two hours prior to the procedure. Medications prescribed by your physician should be taken unless directed otherwise.

Referral Slip and X-Rays:

Patients referred by a dentist should bring the referral slip and x-rays at your appointment time. In some cases x-rays may be inadequate and will be retaken in our office.

Minors:

A parent or guardian must accompany any patient under the age of 18.

Scheduling:

We strive to “stay on time” in the scheduling of patients. However, because of the nature of oral surgery, delays are sometimes unavoidable.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us. We are pleased to have the opportunity to serve you and look forward to seeing you at your scheduled time. Thank you.
