Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. All medical history will be reviewed and your treatment plan will be presented. Please bring your calendar with you so you can schedule your return date for surgery if you are planning on sedation. Some cases can be performed the same day under local anesthetic.
To help expedite the check-in process, please use the ‘Patient Registration‘ for a quick on-line registration at the bottom of the Patient Information Tab. If you have any questions please call us at our Lansdowne office (703) 723-7858 or Chantilly office (703) 668-9494.

- Your surgical referral slip and x-rays if applicable.
- X-rays must be less than 6 months old.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for all visits (including surgery and post operative visits.) Regardless of who is the policy holder for the insurance, the parent or guardian present will be responsible for any amounts owed. Coordination of payments between divorced parents must be made prior to your visit.
Adult children (patients over the age of 18 and still on parent’s insurance and/or living at home) are responsible for all amounts owed. Please bring an appropriate payment method to your appointment. Parents are encouraged to attend the consultation if they have any questions or concerns they want to ask the doctor or staff.
A pre-operative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing anesthesia for surgery. You will be scheduled a separate consultation appointment prior to scheduling surgery. The day of surgery, please make sure you have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you to your appointment, stay in the waiting room during the procedure, and drive you home after.
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 x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office.In order for x-rays to be of current diagnostic quality, they must be less than 6 months old. Please check to make sure you have current x-rays before your appointment. If there is not enough time have them sent to us, please pick them up and bring them with you. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility. Please come in a few minutes early so our trained staff can take x-rays.
