Preoperative Assesments

As of October 1st, the Ministry of Health has amended the Hospital Act. Primary care preoperative assessments are no longer required nor are they covered under OHIP, with some exceptions for frail elderly or housebound patients. This eliminates the duplication of preoperative history, physical and assessment by family physicians.

Please discuss your needs with your dentist or surgeon, as pre-operative assessments now fall under their discretion to complete.
