Dental Anesthesiology

The Department of Dental Anesthesiology is staffed by dentists with advanced training in anesthesiology. The faculty provides didactic and clinical instruction in all areas of pain and anxiety control in dentistry. Didactic and clinical instruction in clinical pharmacology, medical emergency management, and the use of local anesthetics is provided to the predoctoral dental and undergraduate dental hygiene students. Postdoctoral students receive instruction in physical diagnosis, clinical medicine, hospital protocol, medical emergency management, and local anesthesia; as well as all forms of sedation and general anesthesia. The anesthesia management of the medically and physically compromised dental patient is emphasized.
