First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

  • A copy of your surgical referral slip to Central Texas Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and any x-rays if applicable.
  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, please be sure to bring your insurance cards to your initial appointment.  This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian; guardians are requested to provide a copy of their guardian paperwork.

A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for all patients. If you have been scheduled for IV sedation surgery, please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to accompany you to your appointment who will drive you home.

Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medications (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).

X-Rays

If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays you may request that they forward a copy to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them with you to your initial appointment. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
