Preparing for Your Appointment

What to Expect

During your first oral surgery appointment with Dr. Esmail, you will have an examination and consultation. We invite you to ask any questions you may have about your condition or procedure. We collect your medical history, evaluate your overall health, and discuss all of your treatment options.

What to Bring

  • Referral from your dentist (if applicable)
  • X-rays from your dental office (or have them forwarded to us prior to your first appointment)
  • A parent or guardian (if you are under 18)
  • Insurance Information – both dental and/or medical (if applicable)
  • Medications list
  • Health history and current health information, including medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. (this can also be completed on our website under Registration)


Please have any X-rays forwarded to us from your dentist or physician before your appointment with Dr. Esmail. If additional imaging is needed, it can be performed in our office.

Same Day Surgery

In some cases, we may be able to perform the procedure during your first visit. However, in most oral surgery cases, additional time is needed to collect information and prepare.

If you are undergoing any form of anesthesia at your appointment, do not eat or drink eight hours before your appointment. Please see before anesthesia for additional instructions or call us at Esmail Oral, Facial, and Dental Implant Surgery at 360-671-4859.
