ADULTS AND PEDIATRIC PATIENTS

Adult and pediatric patients are great candidates for office-based anesthesia. Sedation allows patients who may be unable, unwilling, or afraid to have necessary dental treatment, undergo the dental procedure without feeling fear, stress, anxiety, or pain. Dr. Patel’s practice is highly experienced in working with adults and children.

Parents & Caregivers

Parents/Caregivers are with the patient until the start of sedation. Once the sedation has begun, the anesthesiologist and dental team will takeover care for the patient. You will not be present during treatment, as the procedure room must be treated the same as a hospital operating room setting. Safety is our utmost priority. The team will be focused on providing the highest quality of care to the patient. Parents/Caregivers may get distressed when seeing their loved one receive treatment. This can hinder the providers from focusing on the patient’s needs.
