What Should I Bring to My First Appointment?
When you come to Utah Facial & Oral Surgery for your first appointment, it is important that we have all the information necessary to plan and discuss your treatment. When we contact you to confirm your appointment, we will remind you of some of the items that you will need to bring with you, including:
- Referral from your dentist/doctor: In some cases, we have already received this. If you are unsure, please contact us and we will let you know if it has been received.
- X-rays: If you have been referred to our office by your dentist or another doctor, you will likely have already had a dental X-ray taken. If so, check with your referring doctor to determine if they have sent us your X-rays in advance. Please bring a copy of your X-rays if this is not the case. If you have not yet had an X-ray, we can arrange for you to have one taken at our office.
- List of medications: If you have an extensive medical history, you may want to obtain a health summary printout from your general practitioner to bring to your appointment.
- Insurance information: If you are insured, please bring your insurance carrier card to your first appointment.
What Can I Expect at My First Appointment?
When you arrive at Utah Facial & Oral Surgery, you will be checked in by the reception staff, who will confirm your details, take any applicable health insurance information, and collect information on your medical history if it is not already in our possession. During your consultation, you will receive a thorough oral examination and additional X-ray scanning may be required. Your doctor will discuss your diagnosis and options for treatment to develop the most efficient and effective plan to solve your oral health problem. A fully itemized quotation of all surgical costs will be provided once a treatment plan is formulated.
The Utah Facial & Oral Surgery reception staff will organize any further appointments for you following your consultation. This includes surgical appointments, referrals for further tests, and any further appointments with your dentist/doctor. This is the time to ask any questions you may have. Remember, you can contact us anytime to discuss your treatment.
