As parents and patients this would be a concern for everyone, and believe us when we tell you we understand your concerns. Our group takes every step and precaution possible to ensure safety, so that you can be happy with the course of treatment. All our patients will be monitored with the same standards of care as though you would be having this procedure in the hospital. The Anesthesiologist NEVER LEAVES the patient side and will continue to monitor the patient into the recovery period. Remember our anesthetics are safe and predictable, to the point recovery time can take as little as 20 minutes.
All the monitors, emergency medications and equipment are always brought into the office. All our staff members have up to date, adult and pediatric cardiac life support certifications. We are so attentive to safety that our staff is required to attend emergency simulations routinely, and continuing education in safety is constantly performed. The monitors we use are routinely certified by an inspector and include, electrocardiograms (ECG), blood pressure, oxygenation, and temperature. We know as parents you would like to see how your child is doing under the anesthetic, so when deemed appropriate we can bring you back to discuss the anesthesia and the dental treatment plan. Our staff will explain everything to you so that we can alleviate any concerns. Remember we started this group to help patients who did not have access to this care, and provide it with strict attention to safety, quality, comfort, all of which has been our mission since day one.
We are always just a phone call away to answer your questions!
