Pediatric Care

Pediatric Oral Surgery in Palo Alto

Pediatric Patients:

We appreciate your trusting us with your children. It is a responsibility we do not take lightly. The practice has a long history of treating pediatric patients (ages 2-17). Our “young” patients are remarkably different than adults in many ways. Young patients have a physiology and level of physical and emotional development that requires special modification of standard treatment methods. We use extra care and compassion to make their experience as comfortable and stress free as possible. We work in close cooperation with local orthodontists, pediatric and general dentists to provide diagnostic and surgical treatment for a variety of conditions.

Anesthesia Care:

The most common concern for the parents is the safety of their children. Our surgeons and staff have extensive experience in the surgical and anesthetic management of children. We use state-of-the-art, advanced monitoring equipment to closely monitor patients during anesthesia.
