Dental Prophylaxis
There is is a bit of a controversy in the field. Due to the low risk of a one time dose of antibiotics, we feel that patients should follow dental prophylaxis antibiotics for life. We encourage you to discuss this with your dentist and make your own informed decision. If your dentist does not provide you with a prescription for antibiotics please make sure that you give our office a 10 day advanced notice. We will mail you a prescription or call it into the pharmacy.
