Preparing for Your Visit


If you have been referred to our office, or have found our office online, you may be wondering what you need to do to prepare for your appointment.  Hopefully, much of what follows has already been discussed with you over the phone.  Following is helpful information that will assist you in being prepared and help you know what to expect when you see Dr. Loveless.

Your Appointment

If you are healthy, and already have a treatment plan from your dentist, often your consult will be done on the same day as your procedure.  If you have questions about whether or not this will be the case for you, please don’t hesitate to contact the office prior to your appointment.  Prior to your surgery, a consultation, examination, and review of your  medical and dental history will be performed. For more involved surgeries such as dental implants or pathology, surgery will usually not be performed on the same day as the consultation. Your consultation is a great time to discuss any concerns or questions you have with our team.

Instructions For Patients Before Your Appointment

After you have scheduled your initial appointment, please follow the steps below prior to your visit:

  • REGISTER ONLINE: By providing your medical history and insurance information prior to your appointment, our team can be prepared for you and facilitate a smooth and efficient visit.
    Dental and/or medical insurance cards
  • X-rays from doctors or dentists
  • Photo ID
  • Surgical referral slips
  • Medication list
  • Patients under 18 must be accompanied by their legal guardian

IF YOU WISH TO HAVE GENERAL ANESTHESIA:  Have nothing to eat or drink for 6 hours prior to surgery. Bring a responsible adult to drive you home. Your ride must remain in the office during surgery.

For questions about your initial appointment or to reserve a consultation, call our friendly and caring team at Archway Oral Surgery and Dental Implants.

The Staff was very helpful, Chrissy made my visit wonderful, she made me feel at ease and helped me to not be apprehensive. Dr. Loveless did a great job of extracting my tooth. I would highly recommend him and his staff.

My father had gone for a root canal the night before and a root fracture was discovered so the tooth could not be saved. We called the next morning to set up an oral surgery appointment and Dr. Loveless was able to accommodate him the same day. The staff explained everything in great detail regarding finances and post operative instructions. Dr. Loveless also discovered another area of concern and removed an additional tooth. This was extremely helpful since my dad is on blood thinners and we really wanted to avoid having to make two trips. Very clean office as well. Will recommend everyone we know to the practice.

I went to get my wisdom teeth removed a few days ago & i could not wait to leave a review. My experience was absolutely PHENOMENAL. I wish i could give them more stars. Everyone at the facility was nice, accommodating and very professional. The procedure was done very quickly and they even gave me Ted Drew’s afterwards! My recovery has been unbelievably easy & fast. I had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted and there was very little swelling. I’ve barely had to take any pain medication and i was even able to eat the next day! I’m convinced they are magicians because the entire experience was just so great it seemed unreal! I never leave reviews but I just had to after receiving such amazing treatment. They definitely live up to the reviews!

Very friendly staff. Doctor spent time to explain and answer questions. Easy to make an appointment. Easy to get a recheck. Staff and Doctor made themselves readily available for questions after surgery even during holidays.
