At the Oral Surgery Office (OSO), our first priority is to maintain a candid, open line of communication with you. This starts with a comprehensive initial appointment to learn more about you, your particular condition, and any concerns you might have regarding oral surgery. The end result will be a diagnosis and clear explanation of your treatment options, so you can make the best decision for you.
If the surgery is relatively routine and you are in good health we can perform the surgery the same day as the initial appointment after your brief consultation. However, if you have medical conditions such as heart problems, diabetes, breathing problems, bone diseases and/or take blood thinners we will likely need you to come in for a 20-30 minute consultation followed by a second appointment for surgery on a different day. A pre-op consultation will definitely be required if you have complex medical problems and wish to be sedated in our office.

When a More Thorough Physical Exam is Required
Some patients with complex medical problems require us to consult with their medical doctor first before scheduling any surgery. We are uniquely qualified to treat patients with multiple medical problems, including patients with medical problems severe enough to require hospitalization for a particular surgery.
