New Patient Information

Your First Appointment

 

As an Austin Oral Surgery patient, your initial visit will be a consultation to understand your diagnosis and treatment options. While there are times when the option to perform surgery on the same day as the consultation is available, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require your procedure be scheduled on a separate day.

For your first visit, please provide us with the following:

  • Your referral slip, if applicable
  • X-rays, if applicable
  • A complete list of medications you are currently taking
  • Your insurance cards (for any medical and/or dental insurance)

Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all appointments.

 If your procedure is scheduled on the same day as your consultation and you will be undergoing IV anesthesia, please:

  • Review the pre-op and post-op instructions
  • Do not eat or drink during the 8 hours prior to your procedure
  • Arrange to have an adult accompany you and drive you home

Please bring to the attention of your doctor if you:

  • Have a medical condition of potential concern, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, rheumatic fever, artificial heart valves and joints, etc.
  • Are currently taking any medication
