Your first visit will usually consist of a full oral exam and consultation with your oral surgeon. This initial appointment gives your surgeon the opportunity to discuss your situation and treatment options with you thoroughly before forming your treatment plan. If you have any questions about your condition and treatment options, your initial consultation is a good opportunity to talk to your oral surgeon. If you need to have additional X-rays or 3D scans taken, your surgeon may take these during the consultation.
To help us provide you with care as efficiently as possible, we ask that you please bring the following things to your first appointment:
- Your health and/or dental insurance information (if any)
- A list of any current medications you are taking
- Any referral forms or X-rays given to you by your dentist or general physician
- A valid driver’s license or photo ID
- Your payment information (credit card number, checkbook, etc.)
Patients who are under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all appointments.
We recommend coming in a few minutes early so that you can fill out any necessary paperwork about your medical history or insurance information. If you have any existing medical conditions that your doctor should know about, please be sure to discuss them during your consultation. Feel free to contact our offices if you have any questions or to schedule your initial appointment with Dr. Craig Yamamoto, Dr. Kitamura, Dr. Eva Kiezik, Dr. Thomas Yamamoto, or Dr. Michael Hironaka.
Thank you for taking the time to review this important information, and we look forward to meeting you.
To achieve the best possible outcome after your oral surgery, there are several important steps to follow, beginning with guidelines for care even before your surgical appointment. Dr. Craig Yamamoto, Dr. Kitamura, Dr. Kiezik, Dr. Thomas Yamamoto, and Dr. Hironaka have all undergone extensive training to be able to provide the full scope of oral and maxillofacial procedures. That being said, how you take care of yourself is equally as important as their qualifications when you are looking for the best experience and surgical outcome.
We want to make sure that you know exactly what steps to take to take proper care of yourself so that you can experience the outcome you desire. To help you prepare for your care before and after surgery, we provide you with both pre- and post-operative instructions. The general pre-operative instructions will help you prepare for surgery by adjusting your diet, medications, and anything else needed to ensure your body is ready. Your post-operative instructions will typically be more specific towards your procedure and will provide instructions for your care once you return home after surgery. It's important that you fully understand these instructions, and we encourage you to call our office if any part of them is unclear.
T구강 수술 후 최상의 결과를 얻으려면 외과 진료 전부터 가이드라인에 따라 몇 가지 중요한 단계를 따라야 합니다. Yamamoto 박사와 Kitamura 박사는 구강 악안면과 관련된 모든 시술을 제공할 수 있는 광범위한 교육을 이수하였습니다. 즉, 최고의 만족과 수술 결과를 원하신다면 의사의 자격만큼 환자가 스스로를 잘 관리하는 것도 중요합니다.
환자 스스로 적절한 관리를 통해 만족할 만한 결과를 얻을 수 있도록 확인하고자 합니다. 환자가 스스로 수술 전과 수술 후의 관리를 준비할 수 있도록 수술 전과 수술 후의 지침을 제공합니다. 일반적인 수술 전 지시사항은 식단, 약물 및 필요한 모든 신체적 상황을 조율하여 수술 준비에 도움이 될 것입니다. 수술 후 지시사항은 일반적으로 시술에 대해 보다 구체적이며, 수술 후 집에서 할 수 있는 관리 방법을 제공합니다. 이 지시사항을 철저히 이해하는 것이 중요하며, 이해가 안 되는 부분이 있다면 사무실에 문의하시기 바랍니다.
