We ask that you call to schedule a preliminary evaluation before surgery. You will be asked to provide your personal information along with medical and dental insurance information. This initial appointment will consist of an assessment of your medical health history and a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. If your procedure will be relatively minor, such as an extraction under local anesthesia, your surgeon may determine that the surgery can be performed on the same day as the evaluation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please complete the registration forms online prior to your appointment and submit those directly to us. If you experience difficulties completing the online form, please reach out to us before your appointment.
