Patients with Special Needs

The Center For Specialized Dentistry provides comprehensive dental services for patients with disabilities.

 

There are many patients who are not able to cooperate.  For many of the patients oral sedation, nitrous oxide-oxygen inhalation or I.V. sedation is not adequate.  These patients require the administration of a general anesthesia.

 

Our facilities are furnished with state of the art equipment including closed circuit anesthesia machines, EKG, SO2 and end tidal CO2 monitors.

 

Each patient's anesthetic needs is determined at an initial no fee appointment.
