Your First Visit

The Oral Surgery Services Staff is composed of experienced, certified oral and maxillofacial surgical assistants, who assist in administration anesthesia and surgery. Our front office staff is composed of informed administrative personnel, well versed in health and insurance policies.

Consultation

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, 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 consultation:

 

  •   Please click here to fill out our patient registration form. Once complete, print them out and bring them to your appointment. This will save you time upon your arrival at our office.
  •   Your referral slip and any x-rays if applicable.
  •   A list of medications you are presently taking.
  •   If you have coverage, your medical and dental insurance cards.

All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.

A preoperative consultation and physical examination – completed in our office – is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.

 

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.).

 

X-Rays

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 films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
