Oral Surgery Appointments, Spring TX
Your initial appointment is a consultation, meeting with the doctor for a full examination and to explain your diagnosis with treatment options. Even if referred for a specific surgical service, the consultation is required before the date of surgery. There are exceptions to same day treatment — patients that require urgent care are naturally are seen and treated the same day; however, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require a second appointment for treatment. This is a decision best left up to Dr. Sitters. If you have concerns or comments about this, please call or email to discuss. We welcome your feedback.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable. If x-rays have been taken, request that they be forwarded to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary they can be taken at our facility.
- A list of current medications, including dosages.
- 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.
Prior to the Consultation please fill out Patient Registration before your appointment; if unable to fill out the forms please arrive 1-1 1/2 hours before to fill out forms and allow us time to verify the insurance.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
Alert the office of medical conditions 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 for i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc…
If you have an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you that day.
We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting. Due to the doctor providing various dental services, circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure. Emergency cases can also arise and cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
