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.

Dr. Loveless,

Thank you for making my tooth extraction so quick and easy. I was expecting a lot of pain. Haven’t experienced any residual pain, either since I woke up the following morning. You should hang a shingle stating “painless Dentist”!! Also, your staff is so kind and attentive. I would definitely come back when needed, and recommend you to anyone in need. Though I don’t wish that pre-surgery pain on any person (or animal) for that matter!

Dr. Loveless was wonderful, kind, professional, and really made me feel comfortable. He is the kind of man you would want as your regular dentist for not only yourself, but for also your family, neighbors, former roommates twice removed (you get the picture lol). I was completely and utterly scared when I went in and he and the staff helped ease my fears. I didn’t feel anything, he worked quickly, and I left feeling really confident in his work. I hope I never need oral surgery again but if I do, I’m going to [him], hands down. I would absolutely recommend [him] to anyone. 🙂

What can I say? No one likes to visit the dentist…especially for anything other than having their teeth cleaned. I am no different. Hated that I had to have a tooth taken out but it was necessary. I was referred here by my dentist to see Dr. Loveless. If I ever have to have anything else done from an oral surgeon, I would never wish to see anyone else. Dr. Loveless and his staff not only made me feel less anxious but they were super nice and made sure that I knew everything that was being done. I would refer them to anyone with complete confidence! If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would. I want to tell them all thank you for making this process much easier on me. Just an amazing staff and surgeon!!

This surgeon is great. ALL his staff is outstanding. Had implant done, basically painless, very interesting procedure. Assistant /hygienist (practically doctor) Emily was great. Highly recommend this office.

I went to have my wisdom teeth removed and it was the most pleasant experience. The staff and physician were very friendly and immediately put me at ease. The office was beautiful and exceptionally clean and I would definitely recommend their services to anyone and everyone!

Dr. Loveless did an amazing job. I needed a wisdom tooth extracted that had a large cavity. He got it out whole in less than 1 minute. He is great. His staff is wonderful too. My whole experience was great. I will refer anyone that needs an oral surgeon!

I had a great experience at Archway. I went there to get four wisdom teeth removed. The office was clean. The staff was nice and efficient. Dr. Loveless was warm and the Spotify music was a nice touch. The procedure went through with no problems and I didn’t feel a thing. I received a post op call and great instructions. Overall, the experience exceeded my expectations after you hear all the horror stories regarding wisdom teeth removal.
