Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Then a surgery appointment will be scheduled. Occasionally, surgery can be done the same day as the consultation, but this is uncommon.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- – Your surgical referral slip and any X-rays, if applicable
- – A list of medications you are presently taking
- – A list of drug allergies
If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit and surgery appointments.
A pre-operative consultation and examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Prior to your surgery appointment, please do NOT eat or drink for 8 hours before your appointment. You will also need a responsible individual to drive you home.
Whitewater Oral Surgery Group is open Monday – Thursday from 8 am until 5 pm. We prefer to schedule surgeries in the morning and consultations in the afternoon, and we will schedule your appointment as promptly as possible. We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting, but due to the fact that Whitewater Oral Surgery Group provides surgical services and treats emergency cases unexpected delays can occur. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
