Heart surgery clearance - dental

Oral infection can be a complicating factor in many types of heart surgery. Our dental staff works with your cardiologist and cardiac surgeon to prepare you for healthy, successful surgery.

The mouth can be a source of infection capable of complicating the condition of patients undergoing many types of heart surgery.  Our general dentists have special training and expertise in the evaluation of patient who are preparing for cardiac surgery.  We work closely with cardiologists and cardiac surgeons in managing patients to promote the best possible surgical outcomes.
