First Visit

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 may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day. A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients who wish to undergo IV sedation prior to their procedure appointment. 

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

  • Your referral card and any x-rays if applicable. We will likely need to take our own specialized xrays at your consultation.
  • ID Card
  • A list of medications you are presently taking and your doctor’s contact information
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, please bring your insurance cards with you so we can assist in processing your claim

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, atrial fibrillation, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medications (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, osteoporosis medications, immunomodulator therapies etc.).


If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays you may request that they forward them to our office. In some cases for extractions, we may be able to use the dental xrays your dentist has taken if the entirety of the tooth root and adjacent vital structures (nerve, sinus cavity, etc) is visible. For wisdom teeth, we will need a panoramic radiograph within the last 6 months and for an implant we will need a 3D cone beam CT within the last 6 months. Both of these are specialized radiographs specific to oral surgery and can be obtained in our office on the day of your consultation.
