If your child cannot receive dental care in a traditional dental office, our practice offers gentle and effective dental care to infants, children, and adolescents in the nurturing environment at CCHS (Wilmington Hospital) or Nemours Childrens Hospital.
General anesthesia is safely administered by an anesthesiologist and nursing team in a controlled hospital operating room environment. We are able to take xrays, clean your child's teeth and do all restorative care, including tooth extractions. All of this is done in around 2 hours or so.
Pediatric hospital dentistry services are ideal for:
- Physically, emotionally, or developmentally challenged children who are unable to tolerate dental treatment in an office setting
- Children with complex medical conditions that make it unsafe to receive dental care in an office situation
