Your First Visit

The consultation appointment is important because it allows us to understand your oral surgery goals. Then, we’ll design a plan on how to achieve them. You can complete the registration form before the appointment, which will save some time on the day of your consultation.

What to Expect

Your first visit with our board-certified surgeons is a great time for us to get to know each other. We design a treatment plan for every patient based on their condition, preference, and goals for improved oral health.

A typical consultation visit includes a medical review, a comprehensive oral exam, 3D imaging, and a discussion of your anesthesia options. This first appointment is also a great time to ask questions.
