Referral Partners

Entrusting your patients to another provider is not a decision made lightly, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a difficult one.

Why Refer to Us?

Our entire process is designed to be a delight for the referring provider. Our staff helps schedule, obtain medical and anesthesia pre-authorizations, and get all pre-operative medical clearances.

We are not a main dental home. All patients referred to Baltimore Children's Surgery Center return to their referring provider with post-operation documentation detailing their treatment.

Baltimore Children's Surgery Center provides robust life safety equipment in a licensed facility without hospital waitlists.

Anesthesiologists oversee all cases to ensure the safest experience under general anesthesia.

Licensed Nurses attend each patient through preoperative to postoperative care.

The Process

Educate Your Patient

Inform your patient that they’re being referred to the Baltimore Children's Surgery Center for treatment under general anesthesia.

Send the Referral

Refer your patient to us via website or fax! We’ll reach out to your patient within 24 business hours of receiving the referral.

Procedure Day

Your patient will be examined to ensure they can receive anesthesia. Your patient will be treated and cared for by our anesthesia, dental and nursing teams.


Once your patient has been treated, we’ll send you a detailed post-op packet about the treatment we performed.


All Pediatric Dentists, Dental Surgeons, or Oral Surgeons who treats patients under general anesthesia must be credentialed at the Baltimore Surgery Center.  

Credentialed doctors must comply with our facility’s policies and procedures.

To obtain a credentialing application or ask more about the credentialing process, contact us.

Education Topics

Restorative Treatment Under General Anesthesia

Sometimes it is necessary to refer children to practitioners who are trained to provide restorative and exodontia care under general anesthesia.

Why Surgical Centers

Surgical centers could save the United States over $2.5 billion with Medicaid fees alone.

Pediatric Behavior Management

The evidence-based data to support a clinical science of the effectiveness of behavior management techniques in pediatric dentistry is limited and needs further development.

Ambulatory Surgery Centers Compared to Hospital-Based Facilities

Ambulatory Surgery Centers could possibly be the next wave to improve healthcare.
