The doctors and staff at Armanini, Kolodychak, & Basile, L.L.P. take great pride in treating a multitude of conditions related to the mouth, teeth, and facial region. We specialize in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, with specific expertise in dental implants, third molar removal, oral pathology, and various anesthetic techniques. We utilize modern, evidence-based medicine and technology to deliver exceptional clinical results while maximizing patient comfort and convenience.
Due to the variety of surgical services we provide, certain circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for any given appointment. Emergency cases have also been known to cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
Your first visit with our Practice may consist of a consultation to determine your diagnosis and any/all applicable treatment options. Surgery can sometimes be performed without the need for a consultation, but a complicated medical history and/or treatment plan is more likely to require an evaluation prior to surgery.
All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or court-appointed legal guardian. Step-parents and grandparents are not considered legal guardians, unless specifically appointed by law. Substantiating documentation is required.
Please assist us by providing the following information prior to your appointment:
- Your surgical referral slip and any applicable x-rays
- Completed patient registration form
- If you have medical and/or dental insurance, please bring your insurance cards and any additional completed forms if applicable
Pre-operative consultations and physical examinations are mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia in our Practice. Please refrain from eating or drinking anything eight hours prior to your scheduled surgical procedure. You will need an adult to drive you home and stay with you for the following 24 hours. Specific instructions will be given at your consultation and surgical appointments.
Please let our staff know if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (including but not limited to diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial joints or heart valves, radiation therapy to the head/neck area), or if you are taking any heart medications, bisphosphonates, RANKL inhibitors, anticoagulants, or antiplatelet medications.
Preregistration is available through our secure online patient registration form. Once completed, be sure to click the Complete and Send button at the bottom to confirm that your information has been provided to us. The security of your personal data is one of our primary concerns, and we will take every precaution to ensure it’s protected.
