Scheduling

Our office does everything to accommodate our patients and schedule your appointment as promptly as possible. We also understand that true emergencies happen and we make every effort to see patients on the same day. Please call us for your dental emergency!

Our office conveniently offers morning, evening, and weekend hours by appointment.

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and all of your treatment options. Occasionally, your treatment may be done the same day. However, this depends on your medical history and the complexity of the treatment plan. Call our office today to schedule a consultation!

What do I need to bring to my first consultation?

  • This referral slip, as well as any x-ray you might have
  • Please prepare a list of all your current medication
  • Medical and/or dental insurance card
  • Your ID or driver’s license
  • Patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian

At your consultation, we will begin by reviewing your health history to decide which type of anesthesia to administer. After discussing any concerns you or the doctor may have, we will schedule a date for surgery.

What do I need to do before the procedure?

  • For local anesthesia, or nitrous oxide sedation, you may eat and drink normally prior to the procedure.
  • If you are receiving IV sedation or general anesthesia, refrain from eating or drinking (including water and coffee) for 6 hours before surgery.
  • Take all your usual medications unless instructed otherwise, using a small sip of water before general anesthesia if necessary.
  • Please call us several days before your surgery to make special arrangements if you have diabetes, artificial joints, a heart murmur or defect, or are on blood thinners other than aspirin.

What happens after the procedure?

  • After local anesthesia, most patients are able to safely drive themselves home.
  • After IV sedation, general anesthesia or nitrous oxide, please arrange for a driver and/or escort to assist you for the entire day of your surgery.
