When is general anesthesia appropriate?

When a child has severe anxiety, sensory issues, or a developmental or health condition that makes it difficult to provide appropriate dental care, or when extensive and complex dental care is necessary, general anesthesia may be appropriate.

If Dr. Greg feels that general anesthesia is appropriate for your child, he will discuss the situation with you to explain how the process works. General anesthesia is not performed here in our dental office but at one of our local hospitals.

At Children’s Center for Dentistry, the health and wellness of our patients, staff, and doctors is our top priority. We have developed a re-opening plan, starting May 13, 2020, that is approved within the Governor’s shelter-in-place order that extends through the end of May. Our plan will expand our care back open to essential and preventative services.
