Hospital Based Anesthesia (general anesthesia)
Not all children are candidates for office based anesthesia. The doctor may discuss with you the option of having your child sedated at the hospital with a medical anesthesiologist while a pediatric dentist completes the dental treatment. The Pediatric dentists at Bloomington Pediatric Dentistry are on staff at IU Health Bloomington Hospital, Southern Indiana Surgery Center, and Riley Hospital for Children and have privileges in the operating rooms at these facilities. If you would like further information about our hospital based anesthesia program, please call our office and ask to speak with our hospital based anesthesia treatment coordinator.
