Minor Patient Policy

Our office strongly encourages all patients under the age of 19 be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who is able to provide consent to treatment(s).

  • In the event a parent or legal guardian is unavailable to attend an appointment with the minor patient, our practice will make allowances for verbal consent over the phone.
  • If we are unable to obtain consent in person or by phone, the appointment will be rescheduled until consent is obtained.
  • Note: Consent must be obtained for every scheduled visit or treatment; it is not enough for consent to be obtained solely on the initial visit.


For parents/guardians unable to attend the minor patient’s first visit, please complete the following intake form and ensure the minor brings it to the appointment along with a valid insurance card.
