Biological Dentistry Surgical Consult

with Alireza Panahpour, DDS

Who Is It For

Patients with complex dental issues and infections, such as:

We do not offer mercury amalgam removal or general dentistry at this facility.

Prior to Your Appointment

Before booking your consultation, you will arrange a 3D Cone Beam CT Scan with your local dentist or imaging center. We can accept previous CT scan results so long as they were done within the last three months. We would be happy to send you a referral for imaging through C’Dental if you’d like to visit their San Rafael center, or one of their other locations. 

If you are arranging your own imaging, be sure you get a DICOM file you can send to Dr Panahpour 5 business days in advance of your consult, so he can have a radiology report prepared for you, as well as a USB or disc with your images to bring to your consultation.

Your First Appointment

Your work with Dr. Panahpour begins with an in-person consultation and exam in the GMA office, where he will make recommendations for your procedure and aftercare.

Your initial consultation with Dr. Panahpour will last 30-60 minutes. He will review your intake forms, your 3D Cone Beam CT scan (see above for details on what is required), and do an exam. 

You may arrange a video consult with Dr. Panahpour to discuss your case and review your 3D Cone Beam scan. You will still require an in office exam before surgery can be scheduled.

After your consultation, Dr. Panahpur will send you pricing and the preparation needed for any recommended procedure to remove infections in the jaw, such as root canals or hidden focal infections. 

He will provide you with a treatment plan with pricing and insurance codes for the exam, scan, radiology, and biopsy that you can send to your dental insurance for reimbursement. You will be billed directly and provided with superbills for his services.

Doctor’s Fee:  Consultation: $180 - $380

Procedure: The fee for the procedure will be determined in your consultation.

Biopsy: There will be a separate pathology fee from the pathologist if a biopsy is required. 

3D Cone Beam CT Scan: around $450 (Pricing at c’Dental may vary depending on your local provider of the scan.)

Beam Reader radiology report: around $100

NOTE: Prices are subject to change. During the Discovery Call you will have an opportunity to confirm current costs.

Follow Up

Depending on your constitution and the areas infected, you may need a consultation with your referring physician or with a GMA physician to help with preparation pre and post treatment, deal with infection, and strengthen your immune response to optimize healing. 

Depending on the current state of your health, you may be ready for surgery in two weeks to a couple of months.  

Your treatment plan will include recommendations for care before and after your procedure to address any existing infections, balance your hormones (hormones are important in blood clotting), improve immune function, and address barriers to detoxification. 

This plan may include physical modalities to improve your bite and reduce muscular tension to allow proper postoperative lymph drainage and healing. It may also include a sleep study to assess possible breathing issues. The plan will include supplement and dietary suggestions and in some cases IV and injection protocols to optimize healing postoperatively. 

Your current doctor can help you implement these recommendations. A member of the GMA team can consult with your current doctor to assist them in implementing Dr. Panahpour’s recommendations. The consult fee to have a GMA doctor consult with your doctor is $400 per ½ hour. 

If you do not have a doctor who can help you prepare for surgery, we can arrange for you to become a GMA patient to help you implement your pre and post surgery optimization plan.

Pre and Post Op Care: costs will vary from $1,000 to $10,000. 

Consult Fee: GMA doctor to consult with your doctor - $400 per ½ hour.

Become a GMA Patient: GMA doctor’s Fees are $400 per ½ hour, $800 per hour. Total cost will depend on the protocol needed. Once Dr. Panahpour makes his recommendation, we will be able to give you an estimate of the costs.
