Patient Information for Lenox Hill Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

My First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Often 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 consultation:
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, bring the necessary completed forms.

This will save 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. Please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to 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 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.).

X-RAYS: 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.

What Kinds of Foods Are Harmful for Teeth?

Snacking is an activity we all do and what we choose to snack on is important. Snacks that are full of sugar such as candy or cake may taste good, but are not good for our teeth. In addition to the sugar these types of snacks contain large amounts of fat. Sugary snacks if eaten regularly can cause tooth decay. At our practice, we provide our patients with guidelines for healthy eating, and always promote healthy choices to keep teeth free of harmful bacteria.
