Dean C. Younce, D.M.D., P.A.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

What to Expect

You have already been referred to Doctor Younce for oral surgery. You have scheduled and attended your consultation, and it is now the day of your surgery. What should you expect to do?

First of all, relax! Although having a surgery may be an unpleasant thought, there is nothing to worry about. The highly trained and understanding staff at our office are here to make your experience as comfortable and painless as possible.

-

Fears asuaged, if you are receiving general anesthesia with valium, you are required to arrive on your day of surgery 45 minutes early to your appointment. I.e. if you are scheduled for 9am, please arrive at the office at 8:15am. Remember to come with a responsible adult who can drive you home after your surgery because you will not be permitted to operate machinery after general anesthesia.

-

Be sure to have read the very important preoperative instructions which can be found here.

-

Upon completion of your surgery, you are of course allowed to rest in our recovery room until you are feeling well enough to leave, at which point your escort will drive you home.
