Day of Surgery

It is your responsibility to make advance arrangements for a responsible adult to drive you home and remain with you for the first 24 hours after surgery. You may not drive yourself, be left alone, or leave the facility in public transportation unless accompanied by an adult. Failure to meet these guidelines could result in the cancellation of your procedure.

If you have had any problems with anesthesia in the past, it would be useful if you can bring any copies of the relevant anesthetic or any related correspondance, with you. Your anesthesiologist will review it.

Please disclose all dental work and devices to your anesthesiologist. There are
special risks with restorative and cosmetic dental work and your anesthetic.

Please bring a list of prescription medications you are currently taking.

Please be aware you will be required to sign a consent form for your surgery and your anesthetic.

If you hold power of attorney or guardianship over a patient, you MUST bring a copy of a durable medical POA or Guardianship papers in order to sign consents for that patient.

Please bring your insurance card with you and a form of photo identification.

If you wear contact lenses or glasses, bring a case for their safe keeping. We provide containers for removable dentures and bridgework.

Please shower or bathe prior to your surgery.

Wear casual and comfortable clothing and shoes. Wear something that is easy to change and will allow for bandages following surgery.

Leave jewelry and other valuables at home.

Your family may wait in the waiting area and rejoin you upon discharge.

Please bring any paperwork you may have received from your surgeon’s office. Please complete any paperwork prior to arrival.
