Treatment for Minors
If any person other than a parent or legal guardian will be bringing a minor patient to a dental appointment, please make sure an "â€œPermission to Treat a Minor without a Present / Legal Guardian Present." form has been completed by the parent or legal guardian before the appointment. This will give consent for the person designated to make treatment decisions and return appointments for the minor child. This form may be obtained from any staff member.
Please make sure the person accompanying the minor stays in the treatment room or waiting room area so that if issues arise that person can be easily located.
Consent for treatment of a Minor Form
- Transportation to appointments may be available.
