Answers

1. What are your fees?
Fees are based on dental specialist fees in British Columbia. Some surgeries will be covered totally by the medical services plan of BC (BC Care Card). All fees will be discussed at the consultation visit. When appropriate a pre approval will be sent to your dental insurance.

2. How is a Diagnosis made?
A diagnosis is finding out what is wrong with the patient so it can be corrected. The diagnosis is made differently for each patient and problem. To aid in making this diagnosis, radiographs (x-rays), an examination or other tests may be required.

3. What drugs or medications are used?
The drugs or medications and any risks associated with these will be discussed at the consultation appointment

4. How do I prepare for an intravenous sedation?
Do not have any food or fluids by mouth for 6 hours before your appointment. This is for your safety and the appointment will be re scheduled if this is not the case. You will also need a ride to take you home as you will be slightly drowsy.
