General anesthesia is sometimes recommended when a child is very young, fearful and unable to cooperate. Some children have special needs and require a general anesthesia to complete their treatment. General anesthesia is an induced sleep provided by an anesthesiologist. It is provided in our office by a board certified anesthesiologist, Dr. Michael Lee.
Outpatient general anesthesia is considered very safe and has an excellent record in the pediatric dental offices when provided by a qualified and experienced doctor. Our goal is to provide safe and effective quality care in the least traumatic way possible.
