Burnham Oral Surgery
Michael A. Burnham, DDS, MD

What can I expect on my consultation visit?

Your first visit to our office is strictly a consultation to discuss your diagnosis and recommend treatment options. Your procedure will be scheduled after this initial appointment.

At the consultation, we’ll go over your medical history, discuss any health issues you might have, medications you might be taking, and other health considerations we should consider. We will go over a proposed treatment plan. There will be plenty of time for you to ask questions so you are completely comfortable with your procedure as well as the recovery period.

We will conduct an examination as well as take panoramic x-rays. If your procedure involves IV sedation, we will also conduct a physical examination. We will also go over payment options at this time, and if you have any questions about insurance, we will do our best to answer those.

You can expect this appointment to take anywhere from 40 to 70 minutes, so please be sure to allow plenty of time. Please be sure that any patients who are under the age of 18 are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

The initial consultation is your opportunity to get to know our welcoming team so you will feel comfortable once you are under our care.
