Every dentist in Texas is licensed to perform all dental procedures. Most, however, choose to limit their practices to certain phases and will refer patients for surgery.
Dr. Roberts: "Your dentist can give you a choice. To have your necessary surgical procedure performed at another location, or in the convenience and familiar surroundings of his or her own office."
As with many areas of healthcare, oral surgery procedures have improved dramatically over the last decade.
Dr. Roberts: "One of my primary goals is to provide you with the most comfortable, safe and convenient care possible. Modern treatment techniques and the latest anesthetic methods - both oral and I.V. - keep anxiety and discomfort to an absolute minimum."
"I.V. (conscious) sedation procedures, or 'twilight sleep', is not a general anesthetic which requires large doses. And, in virtually all cases, nearly 25,000 since 1987, patients have no unpleasant awareness or memory of experiencing discomfort during the procedures."
Gentle treatment is assured... respect and caring of each patient's total needs, both before and after surgery.
Dr. Roberts: "You may call me or your personal dentist after consultation and/or surgery. I will give you my home number and pager number. Both your dentist and I will be available on a 24-hour basis to assist you with any questions or concerns."
