First Visit

What To Bring

In many situations, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or complex treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.

Consultations consist of an explanation of your diagnosis, any necessary radiographs, and treatment options, and cost estimates. Please call us if you have any questions regarding your first visit: The Facial & Oral Surgery Center Fargo ND Office Phone Number 701-232-9565.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation and surgery appointments.
