Your First Visit to Richmond Hill Oral Surgery
We want you to feel comfortable and at ease when you visit Richmond Hill Oral Surgery for the first time, and we know how much being prepared can help. Please review the information below to learn about what to expect during your initial consultation.
What will happen during my initial consultation?
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation, diagnosis and treatment planning. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and an appointment to provide treatment on another day. Third molar (wisdom teeth) surgery usually is scheduled after an initial consultation to enable a thorough review of treatment and sedation options and to answer any questions or concerns a patient may have.
What information do I need to provide during my first 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 medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, please bring the applicable information. This will allow us to help you process any claims.
All patients under the age of 16 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation and surgical visit.
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, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, blood thinners etc.) or if you are pregnant.
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, please request that they forward them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility. X-rays can be emailed directly from your dentist to our office.
We look forward to meeting you and helping you improve your oral health. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to get in touch any time!
