How to schedule anesthesia for dentistry:
Patients can choose from the list of dentists on this website. After contacting the dentist, Dr. Atlas, the dentist, and the patient decide if this treatment option is appropriate for the patient. A mutually convenient date and time is also chosen.
Naturally, preexisting medical conditions may affect the how anesthesia will effect the patient. Dr. Atlas works closely with any other physicians the patient may have to deliver “optimum anesthesia.”
Patients receive “conscious sedation” or “twilight sleep.” Patients have little, if any, recall of the dental procedure. All patients have been delighted with “waking up” and having their dental procedure over.
Dr. Atlas can administer intravenous (IV) sedation, for dentistry, to children 5 years of age and older.
Special Needs Patients
Intravenous (IV) sedation, for dentistry, can be administered to mentally and physically challenged patients on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Dr. Atlas for details.
