First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation to make a proper diagnosis and determine your plan of treatment.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.

Please assist us by having the following available at the time of your consultation:


If you have x-rays from your dentist, you may bring them with you. If additional films are necessary, they will be taken at our office. A panoramic x-ray taken in the past 6 months is necessary for many types of oral surgery. If you do not have a panoramic x-ray, we will take one for you at the time of the consultation appointment.

Insurance Referrals

Keystone and AmeriHealth insurance plans require referrals from your physician for medical oral surgery procedures. Aetna medical no longer requires referrals for wisdom teeth, but many Aetna plans require referrals for other medical oral surgery procedures.

Aetna DMO, Cigna HMO, and United Concordia Plus require referrals for dental procedures. We recommend that you contact your insurance member services department with any questions you have about referrals or your insurance coverage.
