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 also 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 are
sensitive to mercury, or simply prefer mercury-free fillings,
we can use modern resins instead of amalgam (silver fillings).
If you have any other allergies we should be aware of, please
let us know so we can provide a comfortable environment for
