What We Do

Pediatric Dental Surgical Associates specifically and only provides operative full-mouth dental rehabilitation for healthy well, special needs, and medically compromised children ages 1-6, delivered by a board certified pediatric dentist under general anesthesia administered by a pediatric anesthesiologist strictly in an outpatient hospital setting.


  • Significant disparities exist for the most vulnerable patients (80% of the decay is in 20% of the population)
  • Multi-quadrant operative dental rehabilitation due to complex treatment plans, behavior difficulties, special needs, and other issues that make treatment in the customary office setting untenable
  • Papoose use is contraindicated in most children
  • Resources for pediatric dental specialists with hospital credentials, networked with most PPO and Medicaid insurances plans are extremely scarce.
  • Sedation is risky
  • Access to care
  • Sealant based programs don’t address operative needs
  • Missed time from work, school, for in office dental appointments

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide safe, timely, and highly-specialized full mouth operative pediatric dental care in a controlled hospital setting under general anesthesia, administered by a dedicated pediatric anesthesiologist, allowing patients to return to their primary care dental homes, with high-quality restorative work completed compassionately, and ready for lifelong preventive care.
