What to Expect

Your surgeon will perform an oral evaluation and likely take 3D images of your mouth and face, then discuss your options for treatment and anesthesia. We believe in keeping patients informed about every aspect of treatment, and our surgeons and staff will guide you step-by-step through your oral surgery journey. In some cases, we can perform surgery on the same day as the consultation.

3D Imaging

Our offices are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, which we use to take detailed three-dimensional images of your facial structures for accurate diagnosis and treatment.
