Dental Anesthesia FAQs

How can I make an appointment?

Please call (213) 537-8101 to arrange dates and go over details. The necessary forms to be filled out by patients (health history questionnaire, pre-operative and post operative instructions, financial agreements, consents, etc.) can be found on the Forms Page.

Do you offer insurance?

We do not directly bill insurances for anesthesia services as most insurance policies do not pay for anesthesia services for dentistry. Please check with your insurance company representative regarding your benefits if you wish to seek reimbursement from them directly. A receipt of anesthesia services rendered can be provided for insurance forms, and any anesthesia covered by your plan will be the member's responsibility to redeem. Payment for anesthesia will be taken on the day services are rendered.

What will it be like after surgery and undergoing general anesthesia?

Most patients feel drowsy and sleepy after sedation and general anesthesia for the rest of the day. That is why it is important to stay indoors and rest after your procedure, with a responsible adult to supervise your movements and accompany you to the restroom to ensure you do not fall as movements can still feel unstable after anesthesia. This is especially important for children receiving anesthesia and parents should anticipate keeping a watchful eye on them for the rest of the day. Please refer to the Anesthesia Instructions form on the Forms Page for more information.
