Preparing for your visit

Preparing for Surgery

  • We need your dental / medical insurance information to maximize your benefits

  • Our staff will ask questions about your health to determine which Medical Clearances, if any, may be required from your PCP or a specialist

  • Our specialized dentists will review your x-rays and treatment plans, if available

  • Our Anesthesiologist will approve Medical Clearance, if needed

  • If you are a legal guardian of an adult patient or if you are not the biological parent of a minor child, please bring documentation of your guardianship.  If you are not a legal guardian, please bring a notarized and witnessed medical Power of Attorney form with you. 

  • Contact our office with any questions!

What to expect
