The Patient Process
If you need treatment at a Blue Cloud facility, your dentist will send us a referral on your behalf. If they haven’t heard of us, tell them!
Answer the Call
We’ll call you within 24 hours. Be sure to answer our call! Remember- it will come from a number you don’t recognize.
Come for Your Exam
Be sure not to miss your scheduled exam. Your child cannot be treated without one!
Come for Your Treatment
Be prepared for your child’s scheduled procedure. Do not allow them to eat or drink after midnight the night before the procedure!
Back to Normal
After your child’s treatment, you’ll go back to your normal dental office for your ongoing check-ups.
About Your Visit
How to Prepare for General Anesthesia
Expect your visit to take between 2-5 hours.
Do Not Eat
Patients must not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before your procedure. If your child does not come fasting, we WILL NOT be able to treat them due to safety concerns.
Bring a Change of Clothes
Bring an extra set of clothes for your child, just in case of an accident!
We often don’t know exact treatment needs until a child is sedated, which means it isn’t possible to know exactly how long each procedure will take. As such, your child may be seen sooner or later than expected.
This is a Surgery Center
We will not rush the care of another child, just as we would never rush the care of yours!
If your child is sick on the day of the procedure or has congestion in the lungs or throat, their treatment will need to be rescheduled.
Do Not Brush
Do not brush your child’s teeth the morning of the procedure.
Bring Toys or Games
Bring toys or games to keep your child, and any other children, entertained while waiting for the completion of the procedure.

Houston Children’s Dental Center
I was very hesitant about taking my son to the surgical center, but to my surprise, it went way better than I every could have expected. The doctor himself made sure to come talk with me beforehand to tell me everything to expect, and afterwards to let me know it all went perfectly! THANK YOU for being so great with my baby boy!Cassie S.

Staff were so accommodating and sincere in their willingness to help my son. They have such a great attitude which made the visit so much more enjoyable. My son felt comfortable and was talked to directly by the dentist. I was highly impressed by the facility and staff that I would recommend this place to anyone.Cindy M.
