Patient Information

Appointments

Florida Craniofacial Institute is open weekdays for appointments and patient care.
Our hours are:
Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Friday from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.

We will schedule your appointment as promptly as possible. If you are in pain or have an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you that day.

We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting. Due to the fact that our team provides many types of dental services, various circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure. Emergency cases can also arise and cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience.

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

      • Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable.
      • A list of medications you are presently taking.
      • If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

 If you prefer to fill out paperwork in the office, please arrive 20 minutes before your appointment time.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.

A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.

Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).

If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
