Anesthesia

Your comfort and safety during your procedure is our priority. We understand some patients might be a little anxious about undergoing surgery. That is why we offer multiple levels of sedation and work with each patient to determine the best option for their comfort during surgery. To ensure their safety, all of our surgical suites feature full monitoring systems which are operated by our highly trained team members. We currently exceed Texas State Board of Dental Examiners guidelines by always having a doctor and two anesthesia trained assistants present during all procedures and having Advanced Emergency Training and Pediatric Advanced Life Saving (PALS) certification for sedated children under 12 years old.

Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons are distinctive in that they have received formal training in anesthesia through the department of anesthesiology of the hospital system where they did their residency. This includes extensive training on starting an IV to advanced cardiac life support (ACLS). Certification in ACLS is required to maintain a standard of care in the office setting.
