Patient Information

  • Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires up to 6 additional years of hospital based surgical and anesthesia training. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Rosetti manages a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Dr. Rosetti practices a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from cosmetic facial surgery to corrective jaw surgery and wisdom tooth removal. He can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries and TMJ disorders, and performs a full range of dental implant procedures.

    Harborview’s staff is trained in assisting with IV sedation within our state of the art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery. In addition, general anesthesia provided by a board certified anesthesiologist is available within our facility.

    Surgical Staff

    The surgical staff at the Harborview Oral & Facial Surgery Center are experienced oral and maxillofacial surgical assistants, who assist in administration of IV sedation and surgery. Our surgical assistants are CPR Certified and our nurses/LPN are ACLS Certified. We also have a trained registered nurse (RN) and/or LPN to assist in surgery. All staff are informed administrative personnel, and are well-versed in health and insurance policies.

  • 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:

    Your surgical referral slip and any X-Rays if applicable
    Any medications you are currently taking
    If you have medical or dental insurance, please 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 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 8 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, you may request that they forward them to our 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.
