To prepare for your appointment:

  1. Call your insurance company(ies) (medical and/or dental) to verify your coverage. Please review our full Financial Policy here.
  2. Review and complete your Patient Registration. If possible complete the forms at least two days prior to your appointment, or bring in the completed paper copies of your registration.
  3. Bring your insurance cards or have your complete insurance information. 
  4. Bring a list of the medications that you are currently taking.  If you are taking blood thinners and have not received instructions, please contact our office.   
  5. If you are having surgery that requires IV sedation, you cannot eat or drink anything for 6 hours prior to your surgery. The only exception to this is your medications, which may be taken with a sip of water at your regularly scheduled time. However, oral medications for diabetes should not be taken.
  6. Please wear a shirt with short sleeves. It is ok if you wear a sweater or a jacket on top, but you must be able to remove it to be able to access your arm for the IV sedation. 
  7. Everyone who is being sedated must be accompanied by a responsible adult who can remain in the office during your surgery, drive you home and will stay with you for the remainder of the day. 
  8. Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at consultation and treatment appointments. 
  9. Please brush your teeth prior to your appointment.
  10. Review your scheduled procedure information here on our website for more information. 


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. We cannot accept x-rays that were taken more than a year prior to your appointment.
