Some patients have pre-existing medical conditions which require antibiotic coverage prior to certain dental procedures, including, but not limited to, Prosthetic Joint Replacement, Prosthetic Heart Valves, and Heart Murmurs.
The American Heart Association made changes in their recommendations for pre-medication prior to dental procedures for certain heart conditions. We suggest you check with your physician and follow his/her recommendation for your individual medical needs.
Proper coverage is mandatory for dental treatment. If you do not take your required pre-medication prior to treatment, we may need to reschedule your appointment.
If you need a prescription for your next appointment, please furnish your pharmacy number and alert our office staff of any medication allergies, which will allow us to call in your prescription.
