Commonly Asked Questions

Do I need to bring anything to my appointment with Dr. Emmett?

Yes. We ask that you bring any x-rays and/or referrals from your general dentist. This will save you time, money, and prevent further radiation exposure. Additionally, please bring a photo ID, all insurance cards, and a list of all current medications to your appointment.

How do I prepare for anesthesia?

For Intravenous Sedation or Nitrous Oxide Sedation, a patient must have nothing by mouth for 6 to 8 hours prior to the procedure. A driver is also necessary to accompany the patient home. The driver must be present in Dr. Emmett’s office prior to and during the procedure. No specific preparations are necessary for a patient undergoing local anesthesia. During the scheduled consultation you will be advised concerning your anesthesia options.

Should I take my normal medications prior to my procedure with Dr. Emmett?

Medications that are prescribed by your physician maintain a normal physiologic well being. Prescribed medications should almost always be taken prior to your visit. One exception to this rule are anticoagulants. If you take medications such as: Plavix, Aspirin, or Coumadin, please contact your physician prior to your procedure. We ask that you contact your physician prior to your visit to determine the length of time you should stop your “blood thinner” prior to the visit.

Will Dr. Emmett be running on time for my appointment?

Dr. Emmett tries his best to stay on time throughout the day. Unfortunately Oral Surgery is a complex and technically specific specialty. Dr. Emmett takes his time to provide excellent treatment to each and every patient. A patients’ surgery is not rushed simply to stay on time. If you have a time commitment, you are encouraged to call ahead the day of your procedure or consultation in order to adjust your appointments and avoid an extended wait prior to being seen.
