Your First Visit
At Northeast Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center, your initial appointment includes a consultation with one of our doctors to explain your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed on the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation, making it likely that your procedure will be performed at your next visit.
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 all medications you are taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, please bring the necessary completed forms with you. This will save time and allow us to process any insurance claims on your behalf.
IMPORTANT: Any patient under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for each visit to our office.
A pre-operative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia at time of surgery. It is extremely important that you have nothing to eat or drink at least eight hours prior to your surgery. You will be required to have an adult drive you home following your surgery. Please alert us 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 medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy etc.).
If your dentist has taken x-rays, please request that they forward them to our office. If they are out of date or if additional films are necessary, they can be conveniently taken in either of our offices.
