Your first appointment with our practice is a very important educational visit for both the patient and the practice. During this time we inform our patients regarding items of interest relative to current concerns. Discussion of the surgical and anesthetic procedures involved in your care are handled in a thorough manner, to give you a sense of ease and confidence during your treatment. Many procedures can be completed during the initial visit. For more extensive procedures, additional visits may be required.
For any patient under the age of 18 a parent or guardian is required during the initial consultation as well as on the day of treatment.
