Despite the advancement of local anesthesia over the past century, a recent study estimated 1 in 20 adults have a high level of fear towards dentistry, impeding them from visiting a dentist to maintain their oral health even when experiencing intense pain.
Although fear and anxiety is one of the main reasons for patients to seek sedation/general anesthesia services, other reasons may include an allergy to local anesthesia, behaviour management, comprehensive treatment and patient comfort.
Our facility allows such patients to have their dental treatment completed in a comfortable atmosphere. Our services range from sedation to general anesthesia, allowing your patient to be asleep while you complete your dental treatment in a safe, comfortable and friendly environment.
Whether it is for the uncooperative child or the anxious adult, our services are an effective adjunct for all types of dental procedures. During my three year anesthesia residency for dentists at the University of Toronto, my training involved providing both pediatric and adult anesthesia in hospital and out-patient settings.
Established in 2003, Dr. Chanpong has treated thousands of patients who required anesthesia services in order to access their oral health care needs. We hope that we can guide you through this process in order to make it as smooth as possible for you.
Our goal is to provide access to care for these services to your patients. If you would like to learn more about the services we offer, please do not hesitate to contact us.
