At Beckland Dental Kids, we are committed to providing children with a comfortable, safe and positive experience each time they visit our office. We provide different options to help them receive their treatments without fear and discomfort. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is available for most appointments, but we also provide general anesthesia at a San Juan Regional Medical Center or at our office with a dental anesthesiologist. Hospital and sedation visits are not offered in office on the same day. We require a consultation to make sure your child or loved one is a good candidate for general anesthesia and require clearance by your loved ones primary care doctor before appointments can be scheduled.
If you are interested in finding more information about pediatric sedation options, please speak with our dentists or visit the website of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD). There are many resources available for you, and our team is happy to help you find the solution that works best for your child.
