Our office has the luxury of Dr. Tendler’s affiliation with the Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital of New York-Presbyterian, Columbia University Medical Center, where Dr. Tendler teaches and maintains attending and admitting privileges. General anesthesia for dental treatment in a hospital setting carries the same risk as any pediatric surgical procedure under general anesthesia in a hospital setting. That is why we are proud to provide this type of care at the top ranked children’s hospital in the NY metro area. Your child will be treated by the same team of pediatric anesthesiologists, pediatric nurses, and pediatric medical staff who routinely perform the most complex and intricate surgeries on the most challenging pediatric patients, in one of the world’s most prestigious medical centers.
If you have been told that your child requires general anesthesia for comprehensive dental treatment, please call and schedule a consultation with Dr. Tendler for more detailed information, and a review of how this treatment differs from treatment in the office.
For patients with extensive treatment needs that aren’t covered by dental insurance, we offer low-cost patient financing through www.CareCredit.com in order to make your child’s dental treatment stay within your family’s budget. Please call the office for details.
