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.
