Your First Visit
It’s our priority to make sure our patients feel comfortable and taken care of at our practice. During your first visit, we will discuss your oral surgery goals and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed on the same day as the consultation. Please review the information below to learn about how you can ensure your consultation runs smoothly. Feel free to call us if you have any questions.
How to Prepare For Your First Appointment
We recommend arriving a few minutes early to complete any additional paperwork. You can complete your patient registration online prior to your appointment. It’s a good idea to write down any questions you have beforehand so that we can address all of your concerns during the consultation.
