For over 30 years, the practice has offered the best-known care in the region performed by the finest oral surgeons in the country.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Drs. Rosenlicht & Ansari manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Drs. Rosenlicht & Ansari practice a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
A pre-operative consultation and full medical history examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. They can be e-mailed directly to the office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.

What Every Patient Should Know about Dental Insurance
Common Myths & Facts About Dental Benefits
Myth: Dental insurance is similar to medical insurance.
Fact: Dental benefits can help pay for limited services such as preventive care and some single tooth or single quadrant dentistry within a calendar year, but dental benefits are so limited that they pay for a very small percentage of the fees for multiple tooth dentistry and complex treatment plans. Some dental procedures are not covered at all by dental benefits.
Myth: I should ask the doctor to limit treatment to those items covered by my dental benefits.
Fact: We have an ethical obligation to diagnose and share our findings with you. We base treatment recommendations on the needs of the patient, not the limitations of the benefits. We respect your right to make decisions regarding your oral health, but we want you to be totally informed.
Myth: If the doctor is not on my plan, I will not receive any benefits.
Fact: Even if we do not work directly with a particular plan, we will submit the claim for you. You will be asked to pay your co-pay at the time of service, and it is possible –although not guaranteed–that you may receive further reimbursement from the insurance company.
Myth: Insurance companies are a good source of information regarding dental fees.
Fact: Insurance companies base their “usual and customary” fees on averages. The companies have no incentive to keep these statistics up to date (because it would cost them more money,) and our practice is not average. The fees you pay here reflect the quality of the care you receive.
Myth: If there is a big difference between your fees and the amount the insurance company will pay, then your fees must be too high.
Fact: Insurance company maximums have barely increased in the last thirty years! During that time, there have been many scientific advances in dentistry that we incorporate into our practice for your benefit. We provide 21 st century dentistry, and we are certain that you would not like us to turn the clock back and only offer you what was available in the 1970s.
Myth: I have 100% coverage.
Fact: There is no such thing as full coverage. However, we will do everything possible to help you maximize your benefits. We will also work with you and offer you several options to help you stretch out payments over time.
We deliver the finest care at the most reasonable cost to our patients. Our professional services are rendered to the patient and not to the insurance company; therefore payment is due at the time services are rendered unless other arrangements have been made in advance.”
Get the care you want today. We offer payment plans that will let you begin your treatment immediately.
