URGENT: Forgot the thermal pad of ADAU1452. What now?

Hello,

 

I just started to work on a PCB for the ADAU1452. However, I forgot to place the thermal pad on the footprint I created, so no electrical connection exists between the pad and the ground plane. Will the part work? As far the heat goes, we can improvise. But I need to know, will this IC will need the "electrical" connection on the pad in order to run at all? 

 

Thank you.
