Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need a consultation and how much does it cost?
A consultation is necessary to determine the right course of treatment. Dr. Todd will review your medical history, perform a clinical exam, review your x-rays with you and explain your diagnosis and treatment, as well as anesthetic options.
Surgery can occasionally be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or multi-staged treatment plans will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
The current fee for a consultation is ____. If need be, we will also take a panoramic x-ray at no additional charge to you. A consultation/exam is required for medical/legal reasons prior to performing surgery on a patient and allows Dr. Todd to provide the best care possible for his patients.

What will wisdom teeth extractions cost?

The fee depends on the type of extraction (i.e. surgical vs. soft tissue impaction vs. partial bone impaction vs. full bone impaction) as well as what type of anesthesia you choose (i.e. nitrous oxide vs. IV Sedation). The best way to provide you with an accurate fee estimate is to have you meet with Dr. Todd for an exam. At that visit we will provide you with a written treatment plan.
