Patient Information


Welcome to Southwest Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery! We are so pleased to meet you. Our business team will help you schedule appointments and complete necessary paperwork. They will also answer any billing questions that you may have.

New Patient Forms



Insurance & Patient Co-Payments


If you have insurance we will help you determine the coverage you have available. In order to best assist you, it is important that you submit your dental and/or medical insurance information to us with your New Patient Paperwork a minimum of two business days prior to your scheduled appointment. This allows us time to contact your insurance company and obtain a breakdown of the benefits you or your employer purchased from the company. In addition, you will want to bring a dental benefit book that your carrier should be able to provide. Our business team will be happy to help you understand your policy.

Should you be diagnosed with treatment services, we will be able to provide you with a detailed plan which will give you an estimate of how much your insurance company may pay for each procedure, as well as the portion you will be expected to pay at the time of service.

Professional care is provided to you, our patient family, and not to an insurance company. The insurance company is responsible only to the patient as a benefit from the individual or employer plan purchase, and the patient is responsible to the doctor. We will assist you every way we can in filing your dental or medical claim and handling insurance questions from our office on your behalf.

Financial Policy
In an effort to reduce the cost to you, the patient, while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established the financial policy as follows:
•  Payment of any account balance is due in full within 20 days of statement date
•  We gladly accept Visa, Discover, American Express or MasterCard payments
•  Payment plans are available through Lending Club

Surgical Instructions


Prior to your surgery, you'll have a pre-op consultation in which we explain exactly what will happen during your procedure. We will also give you pre-operative instructions at this point so that you can prepare for your upcoming appointment. Some of the most common pre-op instructions involve fasting before the procedure, avoiding smoking, and staying away from certain medications. Failure to follow these rules could delay your procedure, and you may need to reschedule entirely.

After your oral surgery, you'll be sent home with a detailed list of instructions on how to properly care for your teeth and gums. It is common to experience some discomfort, bleeding, and swelling, and we will provide you with prescription medication and home care advice on how to best deal with these issues. It is important to follow this guidance closely, as compliance can help you to avoid unnecessary pain and potential complications.

Remember that if you'll be under anesthesia that you will need someone to drive you home, and this person should plan to sit and wait during your procedure. Your escort can also be useful in helping you to understand and remember your post-operative instructions.

If you have questions about the services we provide, please call (505) 797-3530 or use our Appointment Request Form.
