IV Sedation/General Anesthesia

What is General Anesthesia?

General Anesthesia is safely performed in the dental office by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist and his team. All dental work is completed in one setting where the patient is asleep. The patient vital signs are monitored by the anesthesia team, and the patient is kept comfortable during dental treatment. General Anesthesia services are common in Pediatric Dentistry, just as General Anesthesia is used for patient care in tonsil removal, adenoid removal, or insertion of ear tubes by the physician.

Why is General Anesthesia needed?

Some children who have extensive dental needs are not able to safely sit for treatment using minimal sedation. In other cases, some patients have such extensive dental work that multiple sedation appointments would be necessary to complete the work. General Anesthesia is a safe and efficient way of treat extensive dental decay.

    I have taken my daughter to Peak for the past year and our experience has been awesome. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. My daughter actually enjoys going to the dentist! Dr. Chris is great with her and keeps me updated on any issues we may encounter in the future. Their costs are very reasonable

The whole staff is amazing and so friendly! And, they try and make the parent(s) and child so comfortable and

    Dr Dixon and his staff have always been so thoughtful and conscientious with our children. He has always been available to us when there’s been an emergency. I appreciate that he is supportive of our choices as parents to be cautious as times, and having a “let’s monitor it and see” approach at other times.

    I was referred to Dr.Dixon, here at Peak Pediatric from our Orthodontist. I’m so happy they were able to quickly fit all 3 of my children in for a cleaning. The staff took their time to show all of us around and get to know us before starting any x-rays. Staff and Dr.Dixon are so
