We offer laughing gas (nitrous oxide), at no additional cost, to patients who feel just a little anxious. Some children may require to take some medicine to help them relax even more. If a child can not tolerate the treatment at all, due to young age, extensive cavities, or medical conditions, we will have an anesthesiologist to put the child to sleep where he or she can be treated in a safe, comfortable environment. Not all patients are good candidates for oral sedation or general anesthesia, we need to evaluate medical conditions carefully before we approve oral sedation or general anesthesia. All of our staff, including patient coordinators and dental assistants, are CPR certified. All of our doctors are PALS (Pediatric Advance Life Support) certified.
