How Do I Prepare For Dental Surgery?

The following instructions may be helpful when preparing for surgery. Please do not hesitate to call if you have any last minute questions. We can be reached at 214-691-2404 or

It may be important to stop taking 325mg aspirin 7-10 days prior to your surgery. If you are taking Coumadin, Plavix, or another blood thinner, please follow the pre-operative instructions given to you by your physician. Patients with diabetes often need to modify their medications, be sure you consult with our office. Please take any prescribed medications as directed before your surgery.

In order to evaluate your progress and healing, we will see you multiple times for post-operative checks during the first few weeks. Following completion of therapy we will also look forward to seeing you back for a cleaning and an examination about 10-12 weeks following the surgery
