Dr. Correa has several years of experience dealing with children who have special needs. These special needs include not only extensive treatment dentistry on the very young or apprehensive, but also children who have medical special needs that preclude them from being treated in a typical dental setting.
There are 2 types of General Anesthesia provided by the office pediatric dentist Dr. Correa:
- IV sedation in-office: Administered by a anesthesiologist, in-office IV sedation is a convenient, safe, and effective way to allow dentistry to be performed comfortably and minimizing acute dental anxiety on children. IV sedation appointments can often be booked within 2 weeks, providing children with urgent dental needs the care they need as quickly as possible. The same anesthesia expertise, medical equipment, and monitoring is used to provide kids with the highest quality in anesthesia service.
- Hospital general anesthesia: Children who have special medical and dental needs can be seen at Children’s Hospital, Orange County (CHOC), one of the top children’s hospitals in the state. The dental treatment is provided as an outpatient procedure at the operating room by Dr. Correa at CHOC or at La Veta Surgery Center in Orange, CA.
Medical insurances, such as PPO and HMO providers, can cover part or all the cost of anesthesia services when rendered in the hospital setting. Our knowledgeable staff will be able to help you with determining your benefits to figure what is best for your child and family.
We have worked with medical insurances that have general anesthesia benefits such as Blue Cross PPO, Kaiser, Cal-Optima, CCS, Aetna PPO, Cigna PPO, Blue Shield PPO, Humana PPO and many others.
