How to Refer Patients

The Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery understands the importance of the bond between a referring physician and his/her patient. If your patient is referred to one of our clinics for care, it is our promise that each step of treatment will be communicated to you and the patient will be returned to your care just as soon as is appropriate. Providing the best possible care for all patients is our first priority.

To schedule an appointment for your patient with an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon, please call (318) 675-6101. The automated system will direct your call accordingly.  We want to provide you with all pertinent information needed to make the referral process as easy as possible.
