Initial Consultation

Initial Consultation

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be done 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.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

* Your surgical referral slip
* A list of medications you are presently taking
* 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.
* As a service to you, you may save significant time during your initial visit by completing your health history and insurance information on the internet at www.OralFacialSurgeryOfKy.com prior to your arrival.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.

A pre-operative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink 6 hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.

Please alert the office if you have a change in your medical condition 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 on any medication or had changes in your current medication regimen (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.)
