General Anesthesia Services
Providing Hospital-Grade Anesthesia Services for Our Patients
One-on-one general anesthesia care can be performed in our office to the standard of care identical to that of a hospital setting. That means our patients can have their treatment completely asleep and painless at a cost that is significantly less than in a hospital.
- Patients have a fear-free alternative for their treatment.
- Patients with a high gag reflex can be treated without difficulty.
- Fearful patients can be completely asleep.
- Patients who are difficult to numb can be treated painlessly.
- Surgeries such as dental implants and bone grafts can be accomplished stress-free.
- Special needs, autistic and ADHD patients can be treated more easily.
