Yes, there is a charge for your consultation with Dr. Burnham and Dr. Stearns. The consultation fee is $155.
We will reserve anywhere from 40 to 70 minutes just for you. This includes meeting with the doctors to discuss your medical history and the planned treatment as well as a panoramic x-ray. If your procedure involves IV sedation, we will also conduct a thorough physical examination at this time.
We will go over any paperwork from your general dentist or physician as well as ask you questions about your overall health, whether you are taking any medications, and if you have any known health conditions.
We design our consultations to give us plenty of time to ensure that you are comfortable with the proposed treatment. We can talk about what you can expect before, during, and after the procedure. We will go over what you can expect regarding healing times and address any concerns or questions you might have.
If you have questions about payment options, we can go over those as well as talk about your insurance coverage for the procedure.
It’s helpful to bring along a list of questions you have written down so you don’t forget anything. We want you to leave our office feeling completely at ease that you will be under the best possible care!
