Hospital Dentistry Under General Anesthesia

Sometimes the only safe way to provide dental care for infants, children, adolescents, or persons with special health care needs is in the hospital, under general anesthesia, and under the auspices of an anesthesiologist. We often treat patients who present special challenges related to age, behavior, medical status, developmental disabilities, intellectual limitations, or special needs. Dental decay, periodontal diseases, and other oral conditions, if left untreated, can lead to pain, infection, and loss of function. These undesirable outcomes can adversely affect learning, communication, nutrition, and other activities necessary for normal growth and development

To address these challenges and meet these treatment needs effectively, pediatric dentists have developed and employ a variety of management techniques, including accessing anesthesia services and the provision of dental care in the hospital setting with general anesthesia.

What Our Patients Say About Us

“They were absolutely, positively fantastic. We have 3 small children, 18 months, 3 and 4, and my wife had me take off work to help her take all of them. With previous dentists taking all three was an utter nightmare. We were in and out in 30 minutes with all three kids. The facility is beautiful, the staff is friendly and efficient. I can’t stress how utterly amazing our experience was. We will definitely be returning.”
