First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation with Dr. Como explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. 

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

  • Your surgical referral slip
  • X-rays if applicable
  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, bring your insurance card. 

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

Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).


If your dentist or physician has taken recent x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office or request a copy you can bring with you. They can email them to us at [email protected] or send them via USPS.  Please note that x-rays cannot be faxed. Also, even if we do obtain a copy of your x-rays, it is sometimes necessary for us to take additional ones.
