First Oral Surgery Visit
Call us now at 210-490-4044 to learn more about our procedures and how we will coordinate with your dentist to give you the best smile possible. Schedule a consultation today to meet with Dr. Albright and we can explain step by step what our team can do to improve your oral health.
We are proud to offer you flexible appointments; our offices are open Monday through Friday 8am – 5pm. We are committed to giving punctual service and seeing patients in a timely manner; however, in oral surgery, emergencies do arise and various unforeseen circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a given procedure causing unanticipated delays. Should you encounter a delay, please be patient with us and know that we are working to treat you as quickly as possible while attending to any patient emergencies. Please feel free to communicate your needs to us and we will be happy to accommodate you in any way that we possibly can. Anyone in pain or in an emergency situation will be seen as soon as possible.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip from your dentist and any X-rays if applicable
- A list of medications you are presently taking with your physician’s office number
- 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
A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under the age of 18 years of age at the consultation visit.
A pre-operative consultation and physical examination are mandatory for patients undergoing IV/General anesthesia for surgery. Our highly trained staff allows Dr. Albright to provide surgery the same day as your consultation in most circumstances. If you are undergoing IV/General anesthesia, please refrain from eating or drinking 6 hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to accompany you to our office, remain here during your procedure and 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, radiation, autoimmune therapy, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.)
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays or special MRI/CT scans, you may request that they forward them or obtain copies for 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.
