The initial consultation

Initial consultation

The initial consultation is to diagnose the problem and establish the different treatment options. During this, an explanation of your situation will be given to you and any questions regarding your diagnosis and the proposed treatment plan will be answered. Your involvement and your opinions in the choice of treatment are essential to ensure the effectiveness and success of treatment. Your expectations and concerns will be discussed during the initial consultation. After finding the ideal treatment plan for your condition, the procedures as well as the duration of these will be discussed.

What to bring during the consultation

Occasionally, surgery may be performed during the consultation. However, a medical history or a complex treatment plan may require a second appointment before moving on to surgery. If possible, bring with you during your first consultation the following:

  • The referral form that was given to you by your dentist with the details of the required treatments.
  • Recent relevant radiographs that would have been given to you by your dentist. In case you do not have an X-ray, it can be taken at our offices.
  • A list of the medications you are currently taking.


All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult at the time of the initial consultation.

A pre-operative appointment is strongly recommended in patients who will require intravenous sedation or general anesthesia for surgery. You will be advised if this will be necessary.

It is important to mention to us if you have a medical condition that could have consequences on surgery such as diabetes, hypertension, heart murmurs, artificial heart valves and coronary pontics, rheumatic fever, etc.


If your dentist has X-rays taken from your mouth, you can ask them to send them to us by email or mail or bring them with you on your first visit. If these radiographs are relatively recent and they show the information and the structures necessary to carry out the treatment, we will use it. If not, a new x-ray may be taken at our clinic.
