At this appointment, your child will be given sedative medications. The goal of giving the sedative is to help your child be as comfortable as possible during the dental procedure.
Your child will not be put to sleep - that is done only in the Operating Room or Surgery Center.
If your child is running a fever or seems to be coming down with a cold or runny nose, please call (614) 722-5661 at least one day before the sedation appointment. It may be better to reschedule the appointment if there is a chance that your child is ill.
Your child must be without food or drink from midnight the night before. If your child takes regular medications in the morning, please call (614) 722-5661 for specific instructions.
If your child uses an asthma inhaler/breathing treatment, please bring to the appointment.
We recommend that 2 adults accompany each child for the sedation appointment.
Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Please bring any applicable guardianship paperwork to the visit.
