First Visit

*If you are currently scheduled for an appointment, after reading this page, please visit the patient registration page to complete the necessary paperwork prior to your first visit.

Your initial appointment will consist of an exam, consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options, x-rays and surgery if possible. Although your dentist or physician may have taken x-rays, our policy is to capture digital images at the time of your initial visit. A complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.

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

  • Your written surgical referral slip
  • All insurance information including insurance cards
  • Photo ID
  • A list of medications you are presently taking to include vitamins and supplements
  • The names and telephone numbers of your current medical providers
  • Payment

Your comfort is a top priority to us.  We strive to make our office a relaxing and pleasant environment.  We will keep you well informed throughout your visit.  We find an informed patient is more relaxed, allowing for optimum treatment results. Every effort is made to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting. Due to the fact Drs. Hauck, and Freuen provide many types of surgical services, various circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure. Emergency cases can also arise and cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
