Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation with Dr. Ying. Your health history, medications, allergies, and other pertinent medical issues will be discussed and reviewed. A clinical examination will be performed and radiographs will be reviewed. Dr. Ying will explain your diagnosis and treatment options along with risks, benefits, and potential complications. Various anesthetic options will be discussed in order for you to determine the best anesthetic option that will provide the most comfort for you during the surgical procedure. Occasionally, surgery may be performed the same day as the consultation.
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 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 legal guardian.
