For over six years, our dental offices have offered sedation dentistry for adults. Sedation Dentistry is a wonderful way for adults to obtain their dental treatment, if they are apprehensive, or just want to get their work completed without being aware of lying in a dental chair. But we have never been able to treat children with these same techniques. And, amazingly, even many specialists and children’s dental offices (pedodontists) do not offer sedation for their young patients.
We are now able to offer sedation dentistry for children! Dr. Bell recently completed extensive training in pediatric dental sedation. At Vista Smiles, we have recently acquired special equipment to safely, and efficiently administer pediatric sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry for kids is different than for adults, and Dr. Bell is now our “expert.”
She has long enjoyed treating kids (and I am always amazed at how well she handles children), but now Dr. Bell can offer you and your children another avenue to receive dental care! So, if your child is apprehensive about going to the dentist, or if you know of some children who are apprehensive, or just “antsy” about the dentist, have a consultation with Dr. Bell.
