There may be numerous reasons why your child is
recommended for dental care under general anesthesia. The most common reason is
the child is too young or apprehensive to sit in the dental chair so that dental
treatment can be completed. Other reasons might include handicaps preventing the
patient from sitting in the dental chair for long or multiple appointments.
Sometimes complicating medical conditions could lead to a recommendation for the
surgery center treatment. We refer hospital dentistry patients to North Arkansas
Regional Medical Center.
