As a prospective patient or parent of a patient, we are happy to welcome you to AFD | ANESTHESIA FOR DENTISTRY. Established in 2003, Dr. Chanpong and his team have treated tens of thousands of patients who required general anesthesia services in order to access their oral health care needs. Our anesthesia team of dentist anesthesiologists, physician anesthesiologists and pediatric anesthesiologists provides over 3,000 general anesthetics a year to children, adults and patients with special needs who require dental work asleep. Our anesthesia team pools their unique knowledge together from various settings to ensure you or your child receives the best care possible. AFD is dedicated to dental procedures and provides the most number of general anesthetics for dentistry in BC. Our surgical facility is open to all licensed dentists in B.C. and each year, over 90 dentists and specialists utilize our office with the vast majority being pediatric dentists.
We hope that we can guide you through this process in order to make it as smooth as possible for you. On the day of the appointment, we will be providing the anesthetic and monitoring you or your child the entire time while your dentist concentrates on the dental work. Having two people take care of you or your child allows each of us to completely focus on our task at hand.
Please note: Our office is separate from your dentist’s office and so all questions and concerns related to anesthesia and/or finances should be directed to us. Any questions you have regarding the dental treatment should be referred to your dentist's office. On behalf of my staff and myself, we look forward to being a part of your or your child’s oral health care needs.
