As part of their medical training, our doctors have undergone extensive training in the safe administration of all forms (Oral, IV, Inhalational) of anesthesia in the office and hospital operating room. You can be confident that your surgery will be anxiety and pain free. Local anesthesia will also be administered after you are sedated or asleep so that you are comfortable for several hours after surgery is completed. You will also be prescribed pain medication tailored to your particular case to use after the surgery to control postoperative pain.
Each of our surgical suites is equipped with the necessary monitoring devices to ensure patient safety while under anesthesia. Our doctors and staff have undergone additional voluntary office anesthesia evaluations performed by The Texas Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons to ensure that we are treating our patients under all types of anesthesia in accordance with generally accepted standards of medical care. All of our surgical assistants are required to maintain certification in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). Our doctors maintain certification in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), a more extensive and comprehensive version of CPR. Additionally, each office has an established emergency protocol system to ensure that, in the event a medical emergency occurs, we are able to respond quickly and accurately in the best interest of our patients.
