Your First Visit

Your first visit at Bay Oral Surgery & Implant Center will consist of 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. 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 insurance cards to your appointment. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

IMPORTANT: If you elect to undergo deep sedation for surgery, please have nothing to eat or drink six 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.).

All patients under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. The parent or guardian must remain in the clinic during the entire time the patient is in the clinic.
