Rogers Center for Oral & Facial Surgery

Planning Your Visit

Information about scheduling and arranging payment.

First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis, treatment options and copayment. Occasionally, surgery can be preformed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evolution and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

  1. Your surgical referral slip and panoramic x-ray if applicable.
  2. A list of medications you are currently taking.
  3. Insurance cards and photo id.
  4. DMA form (if you are pregnant).


All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.


The Rogers Center is open Monday–Friday from 8 AM until 4:30 PM. To schedule an appointment, please call our office or use the contact form. We will schedule your appointment as promptly as possible. If you have an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you that day.

Patient Instructions

What you need to do before and after your visit.

Before Intravenous Anesthesia Sedation

  • Nothing to eat or drink (including water) 8 hours prior to your appointment. The safe administration of any anesthetic is based on the patient having an empty stomach. Should you forget and ingest any food or drink, notify the doctor or office staff before your procedure.
  • There may be exceptions in rare circumstances:
    1. Prophylactic antibiotics- consistent with the recommendation of the American Heart Association, take the prescribed antibiotic one hour before your appointment with a sip of water.
    2. Current medications- take the following medication with a sip of water (ex: blood pressure medication).
  • If your health has changed since your consultation, please inform the doctor. This would include a new fever, cough, or if you have a reason to believe that you are pregnant. If you feel as if you have a cold, sore throat, flu or significant nasal congestion; please call in advance.
  • If you smoke, please refrain from smoking at least 12 hours before surgery. Ideally, cut down or stop smoking as soon as possible prior to the day or surgery.
  • A responsible adult must accompany the patient to the office, remain in the office during the procedure and drive the patient home. If the patient is a minor, he or she must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
  • Please wear loose fitting clothing with sleeves that will allow a blood pressure cuff to be placed.
  • Contact lenses, jewelry, and dentures must be removed at the time of surgery.
  • Do not wear lipstick or excessive makeup the day of surgery.
  • Please remove all nail polish or artificial nails or your right and left index fingers prior to your appointment; this is important for us to be able to monitor your vitals accurately during your surgery.

After Intravenous Anesthesia Sedation

  • You should not drive a motor vehicle, operate hazardous machinery, or make important decisions 24 hours after surgery.  While most patients may notice few residual effects after several hours, your alertness and ability to respond properly may be impaired from the intravenous medications you received.
  • Similar precautions are advised for the period that you may be taking narcotic medications prescribed for you.
