Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a referral from a dentist to schedule an appointment?


In most cases, a referral from a dentist or a physician is required. However, exceptions can be made. Please call us at 816-214-9339 to discuss your specific issue and our office policies.




Will I need to have x-rays taken?


In order to diagnose and treat any problems involving the teeth or jaw, X-rays are necessary. If your dentist does not have current X-rays to forward to us with your referral, we can take X-rays here in our office.




After surgery, will I need someone to drive me home?


If you received sedation, you will need someone to drive you home. Patients who receive local anesthesia can drive home themselves.




If my child is having surgery, am I allowed to stay with him or her during the procedure?


If you child is very young, we do allow parents to be with their child before the surgery in order to ask the doctor any questions. However, we do not allow non-patients or non-staff members in the surgical area.




If I have insurance, do I have to make a payment the day of surgery?


If your medical or dental insurance covers surgery, you will receive the benefit of reduced personal costs. Insurance policies vary and they usually do not cover 100% of the fees for surgeries. Once treatment has started, we will file your claims for you. You will be expected to pay your deductible or co-payment on the day of surgery. Please remember that insurance is a benefit for you or your child. If, during the course of treatment, your benefits change, the financially responsible party is accountable for all charges.




What are my preoperative instructions for IV sedation?


Do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before surgery Have someone come with you to drive you home. This person will also need to stay in the office during surgery Wear loose fitting/comfortable clothing Do not wear contact lenses Do not wear fingernail polish the day of surgery, especially red and black Do not wear make-up the day of surgery Stock up on foods such as soup, Jell-O, pudding, ice cream, yogurt, etc. Get plenty of rest the night before surgery If you smoke, please do not smoke 36 hours prior to surgery Take your normal morning medications with a sip of water unless otherwise directed by the doctor. If you take blood pressure medication, please do not forget it on the day of surgery If you have asthma, please bring your inhaler We hope this information is helpful to you. If you have additional questions, please contact us at 816-214-8339 to speak with one of our friendly staff members.
