Patient Information on Scheduling, Emergencies & Financial Policies

On Scheduling & Emergencies

West Coast Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM until 4:00 PM. We will schedule your appointment as promptly as possible. Dr. Rea treats patients at the Royal Jubilee and Victoria General hospitals and is not in the clinic every day of the week. If you have pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you that day.

We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting. Due to the fact Dr. Rea provides many types of oral surgery services, various circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure. Emergency cases can also arise and cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience.

Provisions can occasionally be made to assess and treat you the same day if you are from out of town. Please call us with any questions or to schedule an appointment.

Financial Information

Please remember that payment is due on the day they are provided to you. West Coast Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery accepts Visa, MasterCard, debit, cash, and money orders. However, we are unable to accept personal cheques. If you have dental insurance, we can submit most claims electronically on your behalf for reimbursement.

Remember, patients are responsible for all fees charged by our office regardless of what your insurance covers. Send any questions you may have about your account with a simple telephone call or email, and we will do our best to clear up any misunderstandings.
