What to Expect

Our anesthesiologists will arrive prior to the appointment and set up the operatory with the required equipment. This typically requires a small amount of space and will have minimal impact on operating and assisting.


A preoperative assessment and evaluation will be completed to review the medical history status, focused physical examination, NPO status, and anesthetic plan.


Once the patient is ready for treatment, the anesthesiologist will begin administering medications and the operator will be able to begin treatment shortly thereafter.


Upon completion of oral health services, the patient will be recovered by the anesthesiologist and subsequently discharged when the patient demonstrates adequate recovery. Patients can be recovered in the same area or moved to a recovery area.
