What Happens During My Consultation?
If you did not complete the registration paperwork prior to your appointment, our front desk staff will give you the proper forms to fill out. During your first visit, one of our oral surgeons will assess your needs and design a treatment plan just for you. We may take 3D scans and perform an oral examination. If anesthesia is necessary for your procedure, we will discuss your options.
In some circumstances, we perform surgery the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan can require a second appointment to provide treatment.
If you are undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery, you must first undergo a pre-operative consultation and physical examination before your treatment. On the day of your procedure, you must arrange for a responsible adult to be present in the office on the day of your surgery and drive you home afterward.
We Offer Online Video Consultations
To make our care more accessible to others, our practice offers teledentistry appointments. This allows one of our surgeons to assess your needs via online video chat and determine the right treatment plan.
