First Visit

Oral Surgery Consult

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.

If you have any questions about your first visit or oral surgery consult, please use our Contact Us form or call our office: Santa Barbara Office Phone Number 805-682-0933.

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

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

Regarding anesthesia: A pre-operative consultation and physical examination are mandatory for patients undergoing general anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink 6–8 hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home. You cannot drive yourself home or leave in a taxi.

Regarding medications: Please alert the office if you have a 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 currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.)


If your dentist or physician has taken X-Rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional X-Rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
