First Visit to Pittsburg Dental Specialists
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 complex medical history or treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
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 provide us with your insurance information prior to your scheduled appointment date. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
For patients having Oral Surgery procedures, a preoperative consultation and clinical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia. Please have nothing to eat or drink eight to ten hours prior to your surgery. You will also need a responsible adult who can stay at the office for the duration of the procedure and drive you home.
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 and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medications (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
If your dentist 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 x-rays are necessary they can be taken at our facility.
