Your first visit will consist of an examination and consultation to understand your needs, wants, and to discuss your individual treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, to provide optimal care, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment on another day. If you have pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you that day.
To save time when you come for your first visit, you may pre-register by using our secure online Patient Registration Form.
