To make the registration process run as smoothly as possible, please complete the patient registration form on our website prior to your first initial consultation.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral slip from your dentist 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 and your insurance card;
- IMPORTANT: If you are under 18 years of age, a parent or guardian must accompany you to the consultation visit.
Making sound decisions about your dental care and oral health is an easy thing to do with the right preparation beforehand. Make a list of questions to ask our office, so you don’t forget anything on the day of your appointment. This includes any concerns you have or oral problems you’ve been experiencing.
What Happens During My Consultation?
When you arrive for your first visit, our friendly office staff will confirm your personal information and collect the proper registration materials. During your initial appointment, Dr. Baker, Dr. Barber, or Dr. Betita will perform an initial consultation and comprehensive examination to determine your diagnosis. Once your diagnosis is determined, the oral surgeon will outline their recommendation for treatment options. We are happy to work with you and help you determine the treatment plan that you feel comfortable with.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (e.g., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (e.g., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
If you will be undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery, a pre-operative consultation and physical examination are required prior to your treatment. On the day of your procedure, you will need to arrange a ride from an adult to and from the office.
