What to Expect

A first appointment often starts with a discussion between you and your doctor. Dr. Sherban is a board-certified oral surgeon and knows that every patient deserves personalized treatment. Dr. Sherban will carefully review your health history, perform an oral examination, and have an open discussion with you about your oral health goals and any treatment options you may be considering. This will help Dr. Sherban create the right treatment plan for you. 3D scans may also be taken at this appointment. This appointment is also a perfect time to ask any questions you may have.

While most first appointments require a second appointment for the surgical procedure, some treatments may be completed during the initial visit. If you schedule your surgical appointment for another date, we will send you detailed instructions and other information relevant to your treatment prior to your scheduled surgery date.
