Peace of Mind
Dr. Kobernik and his team uphold the highest standards of the profession. Dr. Kobernik will recommend a physical be obtained from the patient’s primary care physician when the need arises. Consultations from specialists may also be obtained to make sure the anesthesia plan is adapted perfectly for each individual patient. A team approach takes advantage of the expertise and knowledge of each of our patient’s healthcare providers to ensure a quality experience for the patient.
There is a complete system of emergency equipment and medications available at all times to Dr. Kobernik and his team throughout the course of anesthesia and recovery. Dr. Kobernik’s extensive anesthesia training allows him to be able to handle any urgencies that may occur.
Dr. Kobernik always has the patient’s comfort and safety in mind. Whether the patient has a developmental delay, is too anxious to receive any treatment, or if there is an extensive surgical procedure being done, the anesthesia plan can be tailored to fit.
Sometimes a child may not be able to be treated while awake or under conscious sedation, whether due to their young age, fear, anxiety, or extensive amount of treatment. For these patients, the child’s dentist may recommend the option of general anesthesia. Children require extra special care whenever they receive dental treatment, and placing them under anesthesia is no exception. But rest assured that your child is in the best possible care when being sedated by one of our dentist anesthesiologists. It is not uncommon for children as young as one-year-old to need extensive dental treatment. Anesthesia can be safely administered to these young patients by one of our expert anesthesia providers. Although, typically, the parent is not allowed to stay with the child while he or she is under general anesthesia, the child will be under the direct supervision of the anesthesiologist throughout their entire anesthetic.
