Choosing the safest modality to manage the behavior of young, immature and sometimes frightened children, as well as those who may have physical or mental limitations, is a challenge unique to pediatric dentists. It requires an understanding of child psychology, pharmacology and child development as well as a healthy dose of patience, love and discipline. In our office, we offer a variety of behavior management techniques tailored to your child’s specific needs.
The doctor’s decision to sedate or not sedate a child is made solely with the best interest of the child in mind. Anesthetic medications, administered by our anesthesiologist, will allow your child to “sleep” through the procedure in a safe and controlled setting monitored by an anesthesiologist. The treatment is completed efficiently and in one treatment session rather than multiple sessions.
Children report no memory of receiving their dental or surgical care. Our mission is to provide your child anesthesia services with the highest standard of patient care and safety, while in the comfort, convenience and familiar surroundings of our pleasant and child-friendly dental office.
