Welcome to Pacific Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. Your initial appointment is a crucial step in your treatment planning process. During this first visit, Dr. Salib will review your medical history and will provide 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.
In order to better serve your needs, please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- A picture ID
- Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, please bring the necessary completed forms. This will save you time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Prior to your procedure, we ask that you please have nothing to eat or drink six hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to escort you to and from the clinic. 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 films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
