I personally perform all aspects of the anesthetic, and your child will remain under my direct, constant supervision until discharged home. You rarely find a medical doctor like me sedating dental patients. Usually, if sedation is offered, it is provided by a dentist. The skills and medical judgment I have refined over years of hospital work caring for critically ill children and adults during complex operations should give you confidence that your child will be safe in my hands. After earning a B.S. degree in Biophysics and Biochemistry from Stanford University, I completed both medical school and four years of additional specialized anesthesiology training at the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine (UCSF). This program is widely regarded as one of the top anesthesia training programs in the world. I have served on the UCSF and Stanford clinical faculty and published 19 scientific articles, abstracts, and book chapters. I have extensive experience in dental sedation and hold a Dental Board of California “General Anesthesia Permit.”
