First oral surgery visit

Welcome to 7x7 Dental Implant & Oral Surgery Specialists! Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as your consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.

Here are a few things that we will ask you to provide when you come in for your first appointment:

  • Your health and/or dental insurance information
  • A list of current medical conditions
  • A list of current medications
  • Referral forms or X-rays that your dentist or physician have provided (if any)
  • A valid driver’s license or photo ID
  • A form of payment (credit card, checkbook, cash, etc.)

You can expect to receive attentive care and be welcomed by friendly faces when you walk into any of our oral surgery offices. To speed up the registration process, you can fill out the medical/dental health questionnaire, the patient information form, and the financial information form prior to your visit. This will save time in the office, and if you have not filled out these forms online, we ask you to arrive a few minutes early to allow for time to complete them.

IMPORTANT: If you are under the age of 18, a parent or guardian must be present with you during your consultation visit.

A pre-operative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia. We will provide you with detailed pre- and post-operative instructions before your procedure, which you will be expected to follow closely and carefully.

Anesthesia options

Our practice offers a variety of anesthesia options to make sure that you are comfortable and at ease during your procedure.

3D scanning

We utilize the latest advancements in 3D scanning and imaging, which allows us to create highly accurate images of your condition.

Why choose an oral surgeon?

Oral surgeons are required to complete an additional 4 to 6 years of training beyond dental school, making them more qualified to perform complex surgical procedures and administer anesthesia.
