Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complicated medical history or extensive treatment plan may require an evaluation first and then a second appointment to provide treatment. Insurance restrictions also may delay treatment, as many insurance benefits will not cover same day surgery unless it is for an emergency.
You may preregister with our office by filling out our secure online Patient Registration Form. After you have completed the form, please make sure to press the Submit button at the bottom to automatically send us your information. On your first visit to our office, we will have your completed form available for your signature. The security and privacy of your personal data is one of our primary concerns and we have taken every precaution to protect it.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
If you have medical or dental insurance, bring all identification cards and any necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit. In New Jersey, a patient is considered a minor until the age of 18, and cannot sign any legal documents.
A pre-operative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Restrictions for IV anesthesia include nothing to eat or drink 8 hours prior to your surgery and an adult must remain in the office during the procedure and then drive you home after surgery.
Please alert the office if you have any 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, blood thinners etc.).
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 to assist in further diagnosing your condition, they can be taken at our facility.
