Your First Visit
A visit to an oral surgeon can put you on a path towards a beautiful smile and good oral health. Taking care of any problems today will help you avoid serious and expensive health issues down the road. That’s why at Sacramento Oral Surgery, we are here to help you have a convenient, stress-free experience during your first visit and every visit thereafter!
What to Bring
- Your current dental insurance card.
- Completed patient registration forms; you can find them here. It’s always good to arrive a few minutes early to your first appointment to take care of the forms.
- X-rays (if applicable). X-rays from a previous dentist or physician can be forwarded to our office.
- A list of your current medications.
- Referral form from your doctor or dentist (if applicable)
What to Expect
- When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by our front office staff. They will review your forms and discuss the reasons for your visit.
- Your initial appointment typically includes a comprehensive review of your dental needs and concerns, a review of your health history, and an exam by your oral surgeon. Additional treatment may be scheduled for a future date if the surgery is not scheduled for that day. This careful approach allows us to properly diagnose and thoughtfully plan any needed procedures.
The oral surgeon will discuss your current oral health status, as well as your short-term and long-term dental goals. He or she will explain any recommended treatments and answer any questions you have. Additional treatment may be performed the same day.
