Do patients often travel to Miami for oral surgery or aesthetic dentistry?
Dr. Gallardo and Dr. Lamas are renowned across the state of Florida, throughout the United States, and around the world. This brings patients from across the globe into our Miami office on a regular basis. Every week, the staff at Gallardo & Lamas schedule consultations and arrange for multiple out-of-town surgical stays. Our experienced staff is highly trained to help patients with all of their travel needs, no matter how big or small.
Is it possible to bring my family to Miami, for a mini-vacation, while I have my dental work done?
We encourage you to bring guests along to Miami. Just remember to plan a full day for your dental procedure, and understand that you may be tired or sore for several days after surgery. During your consultation appointment with Dr. Gallardo or Dr. Lamas, we will outline the downtime suggested for your specific procedure.
Since I am coming to Miami from out of town for a dental procedure, it is necessary that I bring someone with me?
No, it is not necessary that you bring a friend or family member with you to Gallardo & Lamas Dentistry. Our office is situated close to safe, comfortable hotels. We will be happy to assist with transportation services from the airport, to your hotel, and to our office, as well.
I am considering Dr. Gallardo or Dr. Lamas for my procedure, but how can I have a consultation from across the country?
Patients that are outside of the south Florida area are encouraged to contact our office by giving us a call or by submitting your information online via our contact form. Your patient coordinator will then gather your dental and/or medical records. After reviewing your specific situation, Dr. Gallardo or Dr. Lamas will create an individualized surgical plan around your unique needs.
How long will I need to remain in Miami, after my procedure, to recover?
How long you will need to remain in Miami will depend on the specific procedure that is performed. Most surgical procedures are done on an outpatient basis, meaning you will be resting comfortably in your hotel or at home that same evening. During the consultation appointment, Dr. Gallardo or Dr. Lamas will explain what to expect from the recovery period, and how soon you can return home from Miami.
What do I do about follow-up appointments, if I live far away?
Follow-up care, if necessary, can often be accomplished in tandem with a local dentist office. Your surgical plan will cover follow-up care, if it is needed, from your hometown; as well as how to handle an emergency, should anything arise.
Will flying before or after my procedure at Gallardo & Lamas Dentistry cause any problems?
Out-of-town patients will likely fly into Miami. This is not a problem for surgery. If there are any restrictions for flying home, Dr. Gallardo or Dr. Lamas will review this information before scheduling your desired procedure.
I have never been to the Miami area. Can Gallardo & Lamas assist with my travel itinerary and plans?
Of course! The staff at Gallardo & Lamas is here to assist with your dental needs, as well as your travel plans. When calling our office, be sure to let your patient coordinator know where you are coming from, and if you need assistance with travel arrangements.
