Dear Dr. Orthopedic:
I have completed a dental examination on [Patient Name], and have found her to be in excellent oral health. I can find no potential source for subacute infection at this time.
I have discussed with [Patient Name] the possibility that after her hip replacement you will want her to premedicate with antibiotics before any dental treatment.
