Sedation for Children

At Dentistry Asleep ®, we care about the overall wellbeing of your child.  Our emphasis is on providing caring, comprehensive dental care and making your child’s dental experience a comfortable one.  Studies show children who have a positive health care experience are more likely to have a favorable outlook toward dental and medical care throughout their lives; this is why my first priority is ensuring your child’s treatment experience is a great one!  As a parent myself, I know that parenting is one of the most rewarding jobs you can have; we’re here to support you in providing the best care possible for your child.

During your first visit, we will look at your child’s teeth and gums, take any necessary x-rays, review your child’s medical history, and answer any questions you make have regarding your child’s dental treatment. We allow a lot of time at this visit to ensure your child has a chance to get comfortable, and all of your questions and concerns are addressed. If your child is uncomfortable with any part of this first visit, we won’t force the issue- although in our experience, choosing a favorite DVD to watch from our library usually helps them feel right at home!  My staff and I enjoy helping children and look forward to working with them. Both my team and I have extensive experience treating children; in fact, more than half of my practice is devoted to children, the other part dedicated to my adult patients. I also teach anesthesia for both adult and pediatric dentistry in the undergraduate and post-graduate programs at the University of Toronto. 

After the initial consultation and examination, you will meet with your treatment coordinator who will schedule your child’s treatment, help you navigate through and better understand your insurance coverage, and handle any financial arrangements. Your treatment coordinator will also be your office liaison, and will be able to answer any further questions you may have along the way. Of course, I’m always here to help as well.  I can be also be reached by email.

My goal is your child’s complete comfort and then a quick return to feeling normal. Please use the instructions as a reference to the guidance my staff and I provide.
