First Visit

We look forward to meeting you and are confident that you will have a positive experience at Summit Oral Surgery & Implant Center.

In many cases, surgery can be performed on the initial visit. We work closely with your general dentist or physician to ensure that we have the necessary information to make your visit a successful one.

In some circumstances, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require a consultation prior to surgery. This consultation allows your doctor to review important information that is crucial to the success of your treatment and is also an opportunity for you to obtain answers to any questions you might have.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to all office visits.

Please arrive no less than 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your initial visit:

o    A REFERRAL SLIP and any x-rays if applicable.

o    A list of medications you are presently taking.

o    Your medical/dental insurance card (if applicable)

o    Down payment if required.

o    A copy of the completed PATIENT REGISTRATION FORM and PRIVACY NOTICE FORM.

You may fill out the PATIENT REGISTRATION FORM and PRIVACY NOTICE FORM up to 48 hours before your appointment.

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.).

X-Rays

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 they can be taken at Summit Oral Surgery & Implant Center.
