First Visit to Center for facial & oral surgery

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:

  • Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable. Your doctor can send us your referral and xrays digitally by following this link;  Referral Form
  • A list of medications you are presently taking. Your health history and insurance forms can be completed online and sent to us digitally, this will save you time when you come for your first visit.  You can do this by clicking on the following link;  Patient registration
  • 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 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, heart conditions, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy [blood thinners], etc.).

X-Rays

If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. With new technology most x-rays today are digital and these can be emailed to us directly (Referral Form). Please ask your referring doctor to call our office if they have any questions about how to send these to us. 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.
