Oral Surgery Consultation
Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. If you are scheduled to have a consultation and surgery on the same day, please remember to not drink/eat anything past midnight the day before your appointment and come with a driver in anticipation. This is in anticipation for potential sedation with your treatment.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip detailing the nature of the services to be provided.
- Any x-rays that your dentist/doctor feels are necessary.
- A list of medications you are presently taking and diseases/conditions for which you have been diagnosed.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
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 have nothing to eat or drink six hours prior to your surgery. If you have any questions, please contact us. 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.). If you have been directed by your physician to stop taking certain medications prior to this, please inform the surgeon, otherwise your oral surgeon will advise you on which medications to take. Most medications taken chronically should be continued during surgery and can be taken prior to general anesthesia with a minimal amount of water.
