First Visit

Your first visit with Crystal Coast Oral & Facial Surgery will include a comprehensive exam and a review of your medical history and x-rays. During your first appointment you will meet Dr. Hagan and his caring staff to discuss your diagnosis and goals and learn more about your treatment options. In order to give you the best outcome possible, a thorough evaluation is recommended prior to any surgical intervention. Although surgery may be performed on the same day in some instances, it is not generally recommended.

Please assist us by providing the following on your first visit:
• Your surgical referral slip

• X-rays if appropriate

• A list of your present medications

• Your completed Patient Registration Information, Medical Health History form and Financial Policy form. (link to Forms & Policies page) If you’re unable to print and complete these forms at home, you may complete them at your first visit.

NOTE: It is best to bring all of your medications and supplements with you so that we can accurately note them in your record with the proper names and dosages.

• If you have medical or dental insurance, bring your insurance cards and your driver’s license or some other type of photo ID.

IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under the age of 18 to the first consultation visit.

X-rays and CT scans
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office or you can bring them with you. Be aware that x-rays taken at other offices may not be sufficient to properly evaluate you with respect to your oral and facial surgical needs. Additional films such as a panorex, which reveals structures of the face, jaws, and teeth, may be necessary. This special type of x-ray can be taken in our office. We use 3D CT scans, the most modern imaging technique available for oral and facial surgery. Dr. Hagan has found this type of image highly beneficial, especially with dental implant patients, because it allows more accurate placement of the implants and reduces surgery time.
