The Importance of a Smile

Have you ever looked at someone’s smile and immediately been impressed by how beautiful their teeth were? Did you notice that they seem to enjoy smiling and expressing themselves openly and confidently? We have personally witnessed our patients transform from shy, reserved types to happy, outgoing people. These transformations are our reward for training for so many years.

"Sedation for children in the dental setting"

Using sedation in children to provide oral health care can be a challenge. Factors to consider include the child’s age and levels of cognitive/coping skills. Indications for the use of sedation are as follows:

  • facilitate the provision of dental patient care
  • minimize disruptive behavior
  • promote a positive response to treatment
  • promote patient welfare and safety
  • return the patient to a physiologic state in which safe discharge is possible

The practitioner responsible for the administration of sedation must be appropriately trained, provide appropriate monitoring, and be capable of managing the patient from any reasonable foreseeable complication. Dr. Patrick McCarty is the member of our team responsible for the administration of sedation. Dr. McCarty is a dentist anesthesiologist, and is board certified. His patients include both children and adults, especially those who are medically compromised, dental-phobic, or both.
