Steps involved in the Scheduling of a Patient for Hospital Dentistry:

1: The parent contacts their medical insurance carrier to ask whether they will cover general anesthesia and the facility's fees for dental work. This is not dental surgery.

2: We send out an estimate for the dental insurance carrier electronically. It may take up to 3 weeks to receive a response from them. This will tell us what your estimated patient portion will be for the procedures to be performed. Once we know this, we will collect your estimated patient portion and we will schedule your procedure with the hospital.

3: You must call and schedule a "pre-op physical" with your child's medical physician. This MUST be within 7 days of the scheduled procedure date.

4: The hospital will call and confirm with you 24 hours before the procedure and give instructions for any preparations you need to make before your arrival time.

Please note! If your child was not able to complete X-rays, please be aware that the estimate for dental services may not include all treatment determined to be necessary at the OR. These procedures require substantial time for us to arrange, therefore we ask for 2-3 day's notice if they must be rescheduled or canceled. This will allow another child in need to take your place if you must cancel. We understand that some circumstances change suddenly, but we ask for as much notice as you can give us if changes need to be made. There is a $150 fee for hospital appointments canceled with less than 48 hours notice.

Please call if you have any further questions about this process and speak to our front office staff at 715-808-0460.
