Children’s Dental Surgery consists of four AAAHC-accredited ambulatory surgery centers, each offering a hospital-like setting for safely and effectively treating children in need of restorative dental work. Our centers are currently located in Lancaster, Malvern, Bethlehem, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and treat thousands of children each year. Our team of skilled providers includes board-certified pediatric dentists, board-certified anesthesiologists, and registered nurses to ensure every detail of our young patients’ treatment plan is handled with care.
Providing Peace of Mind
“Surgery” can be a scary word. At Children’s Dental Surgery, our centers provide a comfortable, child-friendly environment that puts kids – and parents – at ease during the treatment of complex dental cases. Our centers are developed with safety in mind, often mirroring the state-of-the-art technology that you’d find in a traditional hospital setting. Children who are treated at Children’s Dental Surgery Centers receive gentle, compassionate, and expert care, helping to alleviate the fear and anxiety that often accompanies restorative dental procedures. Our ability to complete restorative work during one, single procedure also eliminates the need for, and hassle that accompanies, multiple dental appointments to achieve the same result.
Providing Sedation for Safety and Comfort
Patients at Children’s Dental Surgery are treated while under general anesthesia, which means they will be unconscious to ensure they feel no pain during their procedure (this can also be referred to as “sleep dentistry”). In turn, while patients are sedated, our team of dental experts can complete their restorative work safely and effectively.
Complex restorative work is often not possible in the traditional dental office due to limitations with young patients’ ability to remain still for extended periods of time. If significant dental restoration is involved, the associated pain may require more sedation than is safe to provide in the dental office setting. That’s where our centers come in to play, offering pediatric dental providers the ability to treat children in a true surgical center environment, with a team that includes anesthesia experts to monitor children’s safety throughout their dental procedures.
Incorporating anesthesia professionals as we do allows dentists to exclusively focus on restoring your child’s oral health while the anesthesia professional continuously monitors your child under sedation. This approach provides the safest, most personalized, and most expertly rendered approach to dental care.
