INITIAL CONSULTATION

Your initial visit will include a review of your health history, x-rays, a total oral and facial analysis, diagnosis and treatment planning, detailed informed consent, signing of a surgical request for treatment, and financial arrangements. The details of your surgery and the anesthetic to be used will be explained. Further, the doctor will review post-operative care instructions with you, and you will receive a written copy of these instructions. On rare occasion, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation, but in general, it is in the patient's best interest to be presented with a treatment plan at the initial visit and arrange to have surgery performed on a separate day. By gathering and reviewing this information pre-operatively and reviewing the procedure and post-operative course with you, the doctor can deliver your care with the utmost precision, safety, and comfort.
