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, you must bring copies (front and back) of your insurance cards with you to your appointment.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all visits.
For some procedures, a preoperative consultation and examination is mandatory.
For patients undergoing IV anesthesia for their surgery must have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to surgery and will need an adult to come with you to drive you home.

Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (e.g., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medications (e.g., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
If your referring doctor has taken x-rays you should request that they be emailed to our office at email@example.com. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken by Dr. Fang.
