WE ARE HERE TO MAKE YOUR APPOINTMENT
SAFE & POSITIVE
First Visit – Oral Surgery
Your initial visit is a crucial step in the treatment planning process. Dr. Ismaili will review your health history, perform an examination, and explain your diagnosis. Your consultation visit will conclude with a brief visit with our financial coordinator. We will review the proposed treatment plan and associated fees and schedule a convenient time for your surgery.
Please have these items available at your first visit:
- Surgical Referral slip from your referring dentist/doctor or have it sent digitally to us
- A diagnostic and current panoramic x-ray only, if taken by your dentist
- If covered by a DHMO plan, you must bring an insurance referral from your general dentist, your appointment will be rescheduled without it
- A list of all medications you are presently taking
- Picture ID
- Your dental AND medical insurance cards
- New Patient Forms
Sometimes we may be able to perform the surgical procedure the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide your surgical treatment.
SAME DAY SURGERY INSTRUCTIONS
For same-day surgery, please have nothing to eat or drink after midnight the night prior to your surgery, this does not include your routine prescription medications, which need to be taken with a small sip of water. You will also need an adult to accompany you, stay in the office during the procedure, and drive you home. Please read our “Before Anesthesia Instructions”.
We follow treatment standards which support a high quality of care and one of those is a surgical-quality x-ray, which we will take. The type of x-ray you need is determined by the surgeon and may include a surgical-quality panoramic x-ray, 3D image or CT scan. Please remove all earrings, lip rings, facial piercings, etc. If your dentist has taken a recent panoramic x-ray, you may request that they forward it to our office.
Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art cone-beam CT (computed tomography) technology that provides highly accurate 3D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning and treatment. This type of imaging is essential in the treatment of orthodontics, implantology, TMJ analysis, oral and orthognathic surgery, and other dental procedures. Undistorted, anatomically correct views of the jaws, teeth and face are generated. Three-dimensional images enable a level of anatomical accuracy and patient care not possible with 2-D technologies.
