Payment in advance is required for new patient consultations. The consultation fee is refundable should your plans change, provided you notify us 48 hrs. in advance. The initial exam will include a preliminary evaluation of your treatment needs, esthetic objectives and alternatives. Please be aware that additional radiographs or a CT Scan may need to be taken at this visit, so that we can provide you with appropriate information.
Complex treatment plans may require a second appointment to collect additional diagnostic data another day. A separated appointment will then be scheduled, during which Dr. Lee will explain treatment recommendations and costs involved.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral slip and any x-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are currently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. 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.
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 on any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, 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 for your consultation. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
