WHAT SETS US APART?

Going to a Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon means that your oral surgeon has completed and passed a rigorous evaluation and testing process pertaining to all aspects of oral and maxillofacial surgery. Dr. Florine is certified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and lectures at local and national dental continuing education meetings on a number of topics.

Up-to-date surgical equipment and techniques have always been the standard in our office. We were one of the first offices in Minnesota to have introduced digital radiography, which reduces radiation dosage to the patient by approximately 80% and eliminates environmentally hazardous by-products produced by conventional x-ray processing.

Our caring and empathetic staff understands the anxiety that can accompany an oral surgery visit and treats you in a personable, dignified and confidential fashion. Insurance issues are researched for you so that you have a good understanding of your insurance benefits prior to your procedure whenever possible, and we work as your advocate with the insurance company so that you are given the proper benefits that your premiums are paying for.

Our office staff is committed to making your visit as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Dr. Florine is available for after-hours emergencies, and questions are encouraged at any phase of your treatment. We are proud of our commitment to excellence and we welcome you to our practice!

X-RAYS

A panoramic radiograph that shows your full jaw is usually necessary for oral surgery. If your dentist has taken x-rays in the past six to twelve months they may be adequate, but we often need additional films to properly evaluate you and provide care. Digital x-rays taken at Oral Surgery Care expose you to 80% less radiation than conventional radiographs. Digital radiography also eliminates the environmentally hazardous waste products produced by conventional radiograph processing.

 

ANESTHESIA

If you want to be asleep for your procedure, you must have nothing to eat or drink (not even water) for at least six hours beforehand. A responsible adult must be with you to drive you home. Please wear short sleeves so that a blood pressure can be taken, and bring a case if you wear contacts. A parent or guardian must accompany children under 18 even if local anesthesia is planned.

 

INSURANCE

We accept most insurance plans, but please confirm your coverage with us. Most insurance plans pay a portion of your bill. The noncovered copayment and deductible amount is expected on the day of your procedure. We file claims promptly and we serve as your advocate.

 

 

FEES

We are happy to provide you with a presurgical estimate of fees. Payment is expected on the day of service unless other arrangements have been made in advance. We accept Visa and MasterCard, and payment plans can also be arranged. Please talk with our business manager for more details prior to your procedure.
