Dr. Danielle Funny and Dr. Sonya Maynor may recommend an out-patient hospital visit if a patient’s projected treatment requires it or health history indicates they need it. Hospital dentistry involves the use of general anesthesia to put the patient to sleep and help them receive the treatments they need without complication.

Hospital dentistry comes with several benefits. Patients who are candidates for hospital dentistry can have all their care provided in just one visit and in a controlled setting while they are asleep.
Hospital dentistry is most often recommended for individuals with special needs or for children who have extreme difficulty in receiving treatment and would otherwise be unable to receive the care they need. We may also recommend hospital dentistry for individuals with pre-existing medical conditions that make a hospital the preferred facility for treatment. Treatment recommendations, as well as recommendations for hospital dentistry, are based on our dentists’ findings during exams and on our patients’ experiences in our office.
We encourage parents and caretakers to speak with us about any concerns you may have. We want to ensure that you are fully informed and prepared for your child’s treatment.
We welcome you to contact our office today for more information and to schedule a consultation with our pediatric specialists.
