Consultation Appointment

Thank you so much for choosing us for your oral surgery needs!  We would like to welcome you to our practice and we look forward to providing you with the highest quality of care.  Our patients are our number one priority and we make every effort to provide you with an excellent experience.

Your initial appointment with us will be a consultation visit, at which time you will get to meet Dr. Mynsberge or Dr. Ruggles and discuss your health history, diagnosis, and treatment/anesthesia options.  Although surgery can occasionally be performed the same day as the consultation, most patients will require a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.  Please see below as to how to best prepare for this appointment.
