Initial Oral Surgery Consultation
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Call us today to schedule your appointment. We can be reached at The Maryland Oral Surgery Group Phone Number 301-967-0183.
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.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary documents. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age 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 (if medical concerns are identified at the doctors discretion IV sedation may not be recommended) . You will also need an adult to drive you home.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, bleeding disorders, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, osteoporosis/osteopenia etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy -coumadin/plavix, bisphosphonates-fosamax, zometa,boniva,actonel etc.).
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them 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.
