Your First Visit
As a patient of COFSC, your initial appointment will be 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 will require an evaluation on the first visit and a second appointment to provide treatment.
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 complete and current list of medications you are presently taking and any other pertinent medical information, including the names of your dentist and physician
- Insurance cards and subscriber information for any medical and/or dental insurance
By gathering this information prior to your visit, we are able to limit the time that you need to spend in the office filling out forms. A Patient Form can be downloaded here.
All Patients Under the Age of 18 Years of Age MUST be Accompanied by a Parent or Guardian at Every Visit.
If you will be undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery, please do not eat or drink anything eight (8) hours prior to your surgery. It is also necessary to have an adult remain on the premises during your surgery and to drive you home.
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 herbal remedies, vitamins or medications (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.)
COFSC is proud to be a fully digital surgical center. We are able to accept your dentists’ digital image files in order to consult with him or her regarding your treatment plan. If your dentist or physician has taken digital x-rays, please ask your dentist office to forward your images to us directly via our secure provider portal. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
This Patient Center section of the website is meant to answer your questions, allow you to schedule an appointment, and provide valuable information about financial issues, insurance, privacy policies, etc.
