First Visit

John D. Gagnon, DDS, PA and Joe R. Tingey, DDS

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Many minor surgeries done with local anesthesia can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan or a plan for general anesthesia (asleep) will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.

Our offices are located at:

3510 N Ridge Rd, Suite 500, Wichita, KS  67205  (Monday – Friday)

10111 E. 21st St N.  Suite 107, Wichita, KS  67206  (Tuesday – Thursday)

Call us at Ridge Road Office Phone Number 316-722-0800.

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

  • Your surgical referral slip and any X-rays if applicable
  • A list of medications you are presently taking
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at the consultation visit.

A pre-operative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink 6 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.)

X-Rays

If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, please request they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them with you to our office on the day of your appointment. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility
