Hospital Dentistry

If your child is sick, please contact our office to reschedule the appointment. We are unable to proceed with any hospital dentistry procedure until your child is in optimal health.

Sporting Smiles submits to insurance for only the dental services rendered during the procedure; any hospital related treatment such as the facility setting and anesthesia services are submitted to your medical insurance separately by the treating location. You will need to contact the treating location directly to determine why you are receiving a medical bill. 

 

If you have any questions about this during the scheduling process, please discuss them with our Hospital Dentistry Coordinator, who will connect you to the appropriate department within the hospital to discuss your account.

Due to the nature of dental related procedures and the risk of infectious aerosol contamination, both Dr. Khurana and our affiliated hospitals require a negative Covid test prior to any hospital dentistry procedure.

‘…aerosol generating procedures (AGPs) potentially put healthcare personnel and others at an increased risk for pathogen exposure and infection.
