When you schedule an oral surgeon consultation with the team at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Utah, we provide complete instructions on how to prepare for your visit. However, as the date gets nearer, you might be focused on everything but the basics. Our oral surgeons are known for providing compassionate, expert care, but it’s natural for new patients to be a little nervous.
Follow the simple steps below and you’ll be ready for your consultation.
No. 1: Complete Patient Forms at Home
Every new oral surgery patient must fill out registration paperwork. Set yourself up for a quicker, easier appointment by completing these forms ahead of time. Our patient forms are available in PDF format for your convenience.
If you have trouble completing the patient forms, however, you can fill them out when you arrive for your oral and maxillofacial surgeon consultation. Just plan to get to the office a little earlier than your appointment time.
No. 2: Write Down Your Questions
You probably have a lot of questions you’d like to ask your oral surgeon — and we look forward to answering them. But if you’re nervous, you might not remember to bring up all your concerns.
In the days before your consultation, jot down a list of your questions. Bring the list to your appointment and you’ll leave the oral surgeon’s office with all the answers you need.
No. 3: Freshen Your Mouth
You’ll feel more confident for your oral surgeon consultation if you take time to brush and floss before coming in. Freshen your mouth, and you won’t have to worry about bad breath or a piece of food stuck in your teeth.
Plus, a clean mouth allows the oral surgery team to clearly and easily see what’s going on with your gums, teeth, jawbone and oral tissues — and that is, after all, the reason for your visit.
Preparing for your consultation ahead of time makes your first appointment with Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Utah easier. But regardless of how ready you feel, rest assured in knowing that our professional team will do everything we can to help you have a positive experience.
Whether you’re new to the greater Salt Lake City area or a long-time northern Utah resident in need of an experienced local oral surgeon, you can count on compassionate care from the team at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Utah.
