Consultation Visit
Why do I need one? What to expect?


We would like to welcome you to Centre Oral & Facial Surgery. Whether you are a new or returning patient, we are pleased to have an opportunity to provide you with the highest quality care using the most advanced surgical techniques.

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation with the doctor where he will review your medical history and perform a thorough physical exam. If needed additional tests or studies, such as x-rays or blood tests, may be obtained or ordered. A pre-operative consultation is mandatory for patients undergoing intravenous anesthesia for surgery.

The consultation provides an opportunity to ask questions. This communication allows you and the doctor to formulate a surgical and anesthetic plan that best fits your needs and expectations in a safe, efficient manner. The doctor will discuss alternative treatment, risks associated with surgery, as well as the expected outcome and postoperative care. You will have an opportunity to discuss finances and insurance billing during this appointment. If needed, the doctor will coordinate your care with other physicians, dentists, or specialists.

Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require a seperate evaluation to prepare for treatment on another day.

When scheduling your consultation appointment, please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery. This information will allow us to schedule an appropriate amount time with the doctor.

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

  • Your surgical referral slip, if applicable.
  • If your dentist or physician has taken recent x-rays, request that they forward the films to our office. If there is not enough time for them to send the films, please pick up the x-rays and bring them with you. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • If you have lab results or other information that may be helpful, please bring that information with you or request that it be sent to our office.
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, bring your cards and identification information. We will file all claims on your behalf.

IMPORTANT : All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
