Many people have allergies to dust and pollen. Some people have
specific allergies to certain medications or materials. You will
be asked about any specific allergies you may have on your new-patient
questionnaire. Be sure to let us know prior to treatment if you
have allergies to any of the following:
Allergies to Medications
|If you have ever had an allergic reaction to any medication,
including dental anesthetics, please let us know. If you can't
remember the name of the medication, we can contact the health
care provider that used or prescribed the medication to get
the name. We have alternate anesthetics that can be used in
case of allergies to certain dental anesthetics ("numbing"
agents). There are alternate drugs that can be prescribed in
case of allergies to oral antibiotics or analgesics (pain relievers).
Allergies to Materials
If you are allergic to Latex, please notify us prior to treatment
and we will be happy to use vinyl gloves instead. If you have any
other allergies we should be aware of, please let us know so we
can provide a comfortable environment for you.
