Once you have called to schedule a consultation appointment, our administrative team will instruct you to come to our website and fill out the online registration form. If you do not have access to a computer our administrative team will mail you a new patient packet which will contain a variety of forms for you to fill out.
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- 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, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medications (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
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 is one of the few practices in the Bay Area with CT (computed tomography) technology on our premises. We use state-of-the-art, full-cranial cone-beam CT technology that provides highly accurate 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning and treatment of oral surgery and implants.
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.
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, our practice is committed to providing innovative, high-quality, patient care.
