Your First Visit with Dr. Shane Citron

At your initial appointment, a thorough medical and dental history will be obtained. A consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options will be completed.  Minor surgical procedures may be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an initial evaluation prior to a surgical appointment.


A pre-operative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink for eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to be present in the office during your procedure to drive you home and stay with you for 24 hours after surgery. 


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

  • Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays from your general dentist or referring provider, if available.

  • A complete list of ALL prescription and over-the-counter medications including the dose and dosing schedule you are presently taking.

  • When booking your initial appointment please inform us if you are taking any blood thinners such as Coumadin, Eliquis, Aspirin or Plavix. Bloodwork such as an INR or medical clearance may be necessary prior to any surgical procedures. Please inform us if you have had any cardiac procedures or joint replacement surgeries.

  • A government issued form of identification (Ie. Drivers License, Health Card, and/or Passport) in the instance we need to prescribe a narcotic or controlled substance medication.


IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit and surgery appointment. Guardians will be required to show legal documentation of guardianship at the initial visit to our office.



If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional x-rays are necessary, Dr. Citron and staff will discuss this with you at your consultation.

Your First Visit with Dr. Leonard Schwartz

Your first visit to meet Dr. Schwartz will be an opportunity to learn more about your dental health. If you have been referred by another dentist or are self-referred, you will receive an independent assessment of your current dental situation and be able to learn about the treatment options that modern dentistry can offer you. There are always choices available and Dr. Schwartz and his team feel an obligation to ensure that you understand your current status and how your dental health and appearance of your smile can be improved.

Our in-house diagnostic imaging CBCT scanner and chairside computer monitors allows us to show and explain in detail bone and soft tissue anatomy for precise placement of dental implants. Our digital photography will help you see details of your smile that you may never have noticed before.

A full hour of time is reserved for your first visit so we can examine, evaluate, explain and answer your questions. A detailed estimate of costs will be provided and options reviewed to meet your budget. We look forward to welcoming you to our clinic.

Your First Visit with Dr. Tony Ciocca

You will be asked to fill out standard forms for patient information and health and dental history. The dentist will then sit down with you and listen to your concerns and expectations.

If the dental problem is not too complex, Dr. Ciocca will be able to do a specific examination (and radiographs if needed), and during this visit review with you the findings, treatment options, and recommended treatment, along with estimated fees and appointments needed. However if the dental problem is more complex requiring additional records in order to complete diagnosis and treatment planning then additional appointments (as outlined below) may be needed.

We pride ourselves in being thorough in our record taking, diagnosis and treatment planning. We also take the time to make sure you understand the dental problems and the proposed solutions so that you feel confident you are making the right decision.

For complex dental problems or full mouth reconstructions the following three appointments are often needed prior to beginning treatment:

First Visit

Initial consultation:

  • medical and dental history forms

  • smile analysis questionnaire (if applicable)

  • review of referral letter and x-rays (if referred by another dentist)

  • dentist will listen to your concerns and expectations

  • preliminary examination and discussion

Second Visit

Records may include:

  • complete examination

  • photos

  • intraoral scans of upper and lower jaws with bite scan

  • printed models of upper and lower teeth

  • intraoral x-rays, panorex

  • CBCT scan

  • digital design

Third Visit

Treatment plan presentation:

  • discussion of findings and treatment options

  • recommended treatment plan

  • fees, appointments, duration of treatment

  • treatment letter and consent forms

NOTE: An estimate for additional examination and records will be provided following your consultation visit. If you would like an approximate estimate prior to consultation please let us known.

Your First Visit with Dr. Jeffrey Yasny

Your first appointment with Sleep Dentistry is a consultation.This is an opportunity for you to meet Dr. Yasny and review your medical history with him.If any further evaluations or testing is required prior to the procedure date, this will be indicated to you.During your consultation, you can openly discuss your dental needs and concerns regarding dental treatment with sedation or general anaesthesia.

An intra-oral examination may occur, as well as the taking of any necessary radiographs (x-rays).For some patients, having someone look inside their mouth or having x-rays taken, is simply intolerable.We understand.In these cases, the exam and x-rays can be deferred until the patient is asleep during a subsequent appointment.

Based upon the particular needs of each patient, the dental treatment necessary, and the anaesthetic options to safely achieve these goals, Dr. Yasny and the patient will collectively formulate a plan. A comprehensive step-by-step anaesthetic outline will be thoroughly discussed with the patient, as well as the benefits, alternatives, and risks of treatment.Patients and their families are encouraged to ask any questions they have regarding their treatment.
