Department of Dentistry Dental rehab process

Dental rehabilitation 

Once your child has been seen in the dental clinic and treatment options have been discussed, the dentist will help determine which option is best for your child.


If dental rehabilitation in the OR is the best option for your child, you will be given OR paperwork to complete during your visit.

Waiting list

After you complete the paperwork, your child will be placed on a waiting list. The wait time can be up to seven months depending on urgency, location and chronological order.


  • Boston
  • Lexington


As we near your child's name on the waiting list, we will submit a letter of medical necessity to your medical insurance and a pre-treatment estimate to your dental insurance. This provides us with an estimate of what the insurance company may pay. Your family will then be contacted and financial arrangements will be made for co-payments. At this time we will also book the surgery date.

Before surgery

In the weeks prior to the surgery date, your child will need to go for one of the following:

  • Physical examination: For children who may or may not have special needs but are otherwise healthy.

  • Anesthesia Consult: For children with certain medical conditions and children having day surgery.

  • Pre-Operative appointment: For children whose medical history requires them to be admitted into the hospital overnight for observation.

After being seen in the OR, your child will need to return for a follow-up visit in the dental clinic. This visit usually occurs within a week of the surgery date.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
