Patient Information

First Visit

Your first visit or 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 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 first visit consultation:


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 are mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours before your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.

Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern before surgery (e.g., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (e.g., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).

X-Rays

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

Anesthesia Options

We offer many anesthesia and sedation options to choose from, so you can be comfortable and at ease during treatment.

CBCT Scanning

By using highly advanced 3D imaging and technology, we are able to provide highly accurate and effective results.

Instructions

At Utah Surgical Arts, we believe that your treatment starts the moment you enter our office for the first time, which is why we strive to provide compassionate and high-quality care starting at your consultation appointment. Whether you are coming in simply to speak with our doctors, or you are interested in beginning treatment immediately, we treat every patient like we would treat our friends and family. One of the ways we make our patients feel comfortable is by providing them with clear instructions on how to care for themselves or a loved one before and after surgery. We know that patients are looking for the best results when they choose to undergo any oral surgery procedure, and the best way to achieve these results is to follow the provided instructions closely.

Your specific post-operative instructions will vary based on which procedure you undergo, but no matter what, it is vital that you adhere to them to ensure a quick and easy recovery. After years of experience treating patients, our team has found that well-informed patients are most comfortable with treatment and recovery because they have a better idea of what to expect at all points of treatment and feel well prepared for any situation that may arise post-operatively. Whether you visit our office for a simple extraction, or you are in need of treatment for facial trauma or TMJ disorder, following both pre- and post-operative instructions gives you the best chance at a speedier healing process. It's important you fully understand all instructions, so if you have any questions or need further explanation, please contact our office, and we would be happy to address your concerns.
