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:
- A valid government issued form of photo identification.
- Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- Your medical/dental insurance cards.
IMPORTANT: 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 is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery.
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 are one of the most important diagnostic tools in an oral & maxillofacial surgery office. Our standard of care requires a panoramic x-ray for all patients. These films check for pathology in the roots, sinuses, nerves, and jawbones. We are not able to provide any treatment for patients without x-rays meeting the standard of care, therefore we will not be able to provide any treatment with out a panoramic x-ray.
