As a fellow practicing dentist in the Rochester area I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.
The practice I have established is unique in the sense that I provide dental health care to patients whose overwhelming fear has prevented them from seeking treatment- (patients I'm sure you have encountered). Their fear of needles or the sound of the drill has been a problem both to the practitioner and themselves.
Pain-free dentistry is an option for nervous or apprehensive patients with the use of IV sedation. Dentistry under IV sedation can also benefit the physically and mentally challenged, gaggers, and those patients allergic to local anesthetics. We do up to five hours of dental work in one sitting. Age groups include restless two year olds to those over 80. Dental procedures include preventative, basic,endodontics, major - including restorative work on implants.
My solution rests with my dual qualifications as both a dentist and an anesthesiologist. As former assistant professor in the department of dentistry and department of anesthesia at the Medical College of Ohio, I have first-hand knowledge of the benefits of combining these sciences. It is this synthesis that I am applying to my practice.
I look forward to sharing any additional information with you. Please feel free to contact me by phone or in person.
