Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis, treatment options and an explanation of the risks and benefits of treatment. You will meet with several members of the treatment team who will endeavour to answer your questions. Occasionally, surgery may be performed the same day as the consultation, however, most of our patients appreciate returning at a later date in order to prepare for their surgery.
Please assist us by bringing the following information to your consultation appointment:
- Your referral form and x-rays (if your dentist has not already forwarded them to us)
- A list of ALL medications that you are presently taking
- Your dental insurance information (so we can process claims electronically for your convenience)
- Your Patient Registration & Questionnaire (print this form and fill it out prior to your arrival)
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at the consultation visit.
You will be asked to fill out a medical history. Please advise us if you have a medical condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, etc., or if you are currently taking any medication such as osteoporosis therapy, heart medications, Plavix, Pradax, anticoagulant therapy, etc.
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. Sometimes additional records are necessary and can be taken at our facility.
