Scheduling Times

Every effort will be made to keep our schedule running efficiently. However, due to the nature of Oral and Maxillofacial medicine; there are sometimes delays or emergency circumstances that can cause wait times beyond our control.  We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.  We pledge to give you the same considerations when you sit with the doctor.

Prescriptions
Routinely, you will be given several prescriptions to be filled out by the pharmacist.  Please fill them with your pharmacy prior to your procedure and bring them with you on surgery day.   Your nurse will review your medications as well as provide you and your driver with detailed care instructions.

We look forward to Serving you and your Loved Ones
