Your Dental Visit
For Our Monroe and Greater Charlotte Patients

Welcome to Union Oral Surgery. We look forward to providing you with the same high-quality care that our doctors have offered our community for over 30 years.

Our team is committed to your comfort, safety, and effective treatment, and we have designed our practice around these goals. This starts with your dental visit to our offices.

Monroe and Greater Charlotte patients are invited to review the information on this page to make their visit as informative, efficient, and anxiety-free as possible. If you have questions, please feel free to get in touch online or by phone.

Your First Steps

  • Complete the online “Patient Information and Registration” form and bring it to your appointment.
  • Have a parent or guardian accompany patients under the age of 18.
  • Contact us with questions about insurance and payment. Our practice typically requires that patients pay the fees for the first appointment in full.

Information We May Request

Union Oral Surgery asks that Monroe and Greater Charlotte patients share several details to help our doctors in their treatment. As part of your dental visit, we may ask you to provide:

The completed “Patient Information and Registration” form mentioned above.  This form gives your doctor a more comprehensive health history, a list of allergies, emergency contacts, and other important information.

A referral form from your dentist. Typically, patients come to our office after their general practitioner has referred them. However, we welcome patients who visit us directly for treatment.

X-rays, if applicable. Your general dentist may have taken X-rays in advance of your dental visit. Feel free to have your dentist send these to our practice or to bring them yourself.

A list of your current medications. This information helps our doctors improve your safety during treatment or surgery.

In addition, please bring proof of medical or dental insurance if you carry it and would like to apply it to the cost of our services.

What to Expect in Your Dental Visit

An initial visit takes place in our Monroe or Greater Charlotte offices. Your doctor will listen to what you’d like to accomplish in our care, discuss treatment options, and answer any questions you have. In some cases, the doctor may recommend additional X-rays or other diagnostic tests to provide a more accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

During the dental visit, please let your doctor know if:

  • You have a medical condition that may be of concern, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, or rheumatic fever.
  • You are currently taking any medications such as heart medicine, aspirin, or anticoagulant therapy.

Union Oral Surgery can perform certain simple procedures on the same day as the initial dental visit. However, you will likely require a second appointment if you have a complex medical history or need a more in-depth surgical procedure. This is to ensure quality in your care.

If you are planning to receive intravenous (IV) anesthesia for surgery, Union Oral Surgery will also ask that you:

  • Have nothing to eat or drink six hours prior to surgery.
  • Arrange for another adult to drive you home following the procedure.

About Our Staff and Facilities

One of the reasons that patients refer their friends and family to us for dental visits is the supportive, comfortable, and low-anxiety atmosphere we offer.

Our staff is available to help with questions you have related to treatment, recovery, and costs. We are happy to review these details so that you have no surprises in your care and enter procedures with confidence.

Our facilities contribute to this experience. Treatments take place in a modern and professional office setting. We have also invested in the latest technology and aesthetic products to reduce discomfort, improve outcomes, and speed recovery time. Along with the skills of our doctors and staff, these resources will help you have the most positive experience possible.
