Oral Surgery Consultation in Santa Cruz
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be done 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. Our receptionists will discuss this with you when you call our office to schedule an appointment.
**Note: They will be a $50.00 Cancellation Fee if, you cancel, no-show or re-schedule the consultation appointment is with less than a 72 hour notice**
