First Visit: Oral Surgery Consultation

Please make sure to bring your loved one who helps you make your decisions, plans your schedules, and helps you with your finances. We can efficiently schedule you with the help of your supporters.

Why do I need a consult? Why can’t I just walk in and do the surgery under general anesthesia?

As a specialist, we understand you may have seen your General Dentist many times before us,  but you will be seeing us for the first time. It is recommended to have a referral from your dentist to avoid any miscommunication.

To have predictable, successful outcomes of our surgery, the consultation includes:

  • review your chief complaint and the history of the complaint
  • review your medical history, medication, and other relevant information
  • review your x-ray (This is a very important step in our surgical planning)
  • perform a clinical exam (This is an in-office exam)

A diagnosis is made with all of this information.

If you have treatment options, it is our professional duty to go over all of them with you.

The risks and benefits of doing the treatment surgery are presented by OMSNIC and your surgeon.

The financial costs are also reviewed in detail at this consult to ensure you are comfortable on all fronts to move forward.

You then schedule a reasonable time for surgery where you will be able to recover without stress.

Occasionally and if all circumstances are good, then surgery can be performed on the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or prescribed treatment may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.

We are governed by safety and quality of care which we will not compromise on.


If your dentist or physician has taken a panoramic x-ray within the last six months you may request that they forward them to our office. If additional films are necessary for diagnosis and treatment planning, they can be taken to our office.

A panorex x-ray allows us to view the entire jaw structure, teeth, inferior alveolar nerve canal,  temporomandibular joints (TMJ), nasal bones, sinuses, and orbits.
