IV Sedation may be considered for extremely anxious, special needs, or very young children where other behavioral management techniques were not successful. Dr. Ryan has worked with Dr. Gershon Fink, a Pediatric Fellowship trained Anesthesiologist for many years and they have done hundreds of successful in-office IV Sedation cases together. Their goal is to be able to treat your child in the most effective way possible, always with your child’s best interest in mind. While most pediatric dental patients can be managed effectively using communicative behavioral guidance techniques, many children require advanced techniques like IV Sedation. Dr. Ryan will review each patients’ needs and discuss with you if he feels IV Sedation is recommended for your child. Successful behavior guidance enables Dr. Ryan to perform quality treatment safely and efficiently, and to nurture a positive dental attitude in the pediatric patient.
