For those who cannot maintain or receive traditional dental care, hospital dentistry offers a compassionate, efficient alternative. Frequently, children under the age of five or children who may have a medical or behavioral condition which makes it difficult to treat in an office setting, hospital dentistry offers a safe and effective alternative. Dr. Aarons treats these cases at Children's Mercy South hospital in Overland Park, Kansas. It is located just off I-435 and Nall on 110th Street. We have reserved time twice a month at this hospital and typically see these patients first thing in the morning. Our reserved dates are the first Tuesday and third Wednesday of every month, however, these dates may be subject to change due to various scheduling conflicts such as vacations and dental meetings
If you wish to find out if your medical insurance covers this type of service, please call them. You will need to ask them if "anesthesia and facility charges" for a child 5 and under or a patient with a medical or behavioral condition will be covered. Dental insurance companies DO NOT cover this benefit. This is a benefit that is billed to your MEDICAL insurance by Children's Mercy Hospital. You may also want to find out if you have any deductibles and co-payments while you have them on the phone.
If you have any questions about hospital dentistry or think that it may be necessary for you or for someone you love, please contact us.
