Absolutely! If you were to count the number of cases you referred to your oral surgeon you could quickly calculate the revenue you have sent out the door. But it is not about the money, it is about the people! When your patients hear that they can now receive these treatments in your office they will be thrilled! This will make your practice even more marketable. How many times have you had your patients ask if you, their trusted GP to do their procedure? Do I have to go somewhere else?" ?How many times have you had an extraction take longer than expected and ruin your schedule? Maybe you have given up on extracting teeth. Patients want to get all of their dental care in one location in a setting where they are comfortable and familiar.
Ideally, you will want me in your practice 1-2 times each month but I am available to come more or less frequently according to the needs of your practice.
Post-operative care is very important. It is usually very straight forward. The evening of the surgery I will care-call patients to see how they are doing and make sure they have my cell phone number. A one week check to instruct patients on proper irrigation and cleansing of their extraction sites is required and usually the only visit. Other possible complications include post operative infection, dry socket. Other severe complications can happen and are extremely rare. While most post operative care can be handled in your office in a predictable fashion by a well-trained and qualified dental assistant, I am available for follow-up. I am available and will train your staff to manage complications for you. Detailed information is available for you on the Doctor's log-in page.
