   Name (If the patient is a minor): 

I understand that antibiotics, analgesics and other medications can cause reactions causing redness and swelling of the tissues, itching, vomiting, and/or anaphylactic shock (severe allergic reaction) and can cause pain. They may cause drowsiness and lack of awareness and coordination, which can be increased by the use of alcohol or other drugs. I understand and fully agree not to operate any vehicle or hazardous devices for at least 12 hours or until fully recovered from the medications and drugs that may have been given to me in the office. I understand that failure to take medications prescribed for me in the manner prescribed may offer risks of continued or aggravated infection and pain and potential resistance to effective treatment of my condition.



I understand that during treatment it may be necessary to change or add procedures because of conditions found while working on the teeth that was not discovered during examination, the most common is being root canal therapy following routine restorative procedures. I give my permission to the Dentist to make any/all changes and additions as necessary.
