Hospital Care

Riverdale Pediatric Dentistry is proud to offer hospital dentistry.  This is a wonderful option for children and many medical plans include coverage of hospital care for patients diagnosed with special needs or for those under 5 years of age.

Our doctors are credentialed through Children’s Hospitals & Clinics of Minnesota and Allina Health Mercy General Surgery Clinic.   The websites for these facilities are listed below and can be of great help in navigating the roads and parking plans for your outpatient procedure.

Riverdale Pediatric Dentistry also offers in-clinic General Anesthesia.  We have contracted with Heather Robinson, DDS, Dentist Anesthesiologist to provide anesthesia services right here at our location.  Please visit her website for more information:  www.mwdentalanesthesia.com.

For further information on how we can schedule your child, please contact our Hospital Coordinator, Keri.

Please REVIEW the following steps to be taken prior to scheduling your child for hospital care:

1.      The parent will contact the patients’ medical insurance company to verify coverage of general anesthesia and hospital facility fees.  Be sure to let them know that the dental treatment will be performed as an outpatient and separate arrangements have been made to cover the cost of the dental work.  Let our Hospital Coordinator know if your medical insurance company requires prior authorization for these services.

2.      Our office will electronically request a pre-treatment estimate from your dental insurance company.  It may take up to 4 weeks to receive a response from them.  This will give us an idea of what your estimated patient responsibility will be for the dental procedures and will be collected prior to scheduling a hospital date.  Please keep in mind that this does NOT include any hospital facility fees or general anesthesia costs.

3.      Once your child has a scheduled hospital date, you must call your medical physician to schedule a “Pre-Op Physical”.  This physical must be completed no more than 30 days prior to the hospital date.

4.      You will receive a call from the hospital where treatment will be performed a couple days prior to the appointment.  The purpose of this call is to help you and your child prepare for their upcoming appointment.

Please NOTE!

If your child was not able to complete x-rays in the clinic prior to their hospital appointment, the estimate for dental services may not include all treatment determined to be necessary at the hospital.

These procedures require substantial time for us to arrange therefore we ask for a minimum of 48 hours’ notice to reschedule or cancel your child’s appointment.  This will allow another child in need of treatment.  There is a $150 fee for hospital appointments cancelled with less than 48 hours’ notice.

Please contact our Hospital Coordinator at 763-767-1524 or keri@cavitypatrol.com if you have further questions about this process.
