Anesthesia and Surgery Safety

Dr. Hendrickson is trained and certified to provide IV sedation to his patients.  In fact, Dr. Hendrickson is a clinical director at Western Surgical and Sedation and teaches other dentists from around the world how to provide safe, minimal, cost-effective IV sedation to their patients.  

However, to improve patient comfort and safety all anesthesia services in our office are performed by Michael Call, CRNA. Anesthesia guarantees a comfortable, pain-free experience with no negative or frightening memories of the surgery. Under the care of our Anesthesia Specialist, you will sleep peacefully while your wisdom teeth are removed.

IV Anesthetics place the patient in an unconscious or relaxed state which prevents the patient from feeling pain throughout their procedures and allows Dr. Heath Hendrickson to work quickly and effectively. In addition to the sleep medication, local anesthetics are used to numb the surgery site for post-surgical comfort. It is worth repeating that all IV anesthetics in Midvale, Provo, and Layton, Utah, are administered by our trained professional CRNA, or Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist.

Our team approach ensures that your procedure is safe, comfortable and as non-invasive as possible. Dr. Wisdom Teeth carefully takes the necessary precautions to make sure sedation is properly administered, every time, for each patient. If you are nervous about your upcoming wisdom tooth surgery, you should know that we take every step possible to minimize and eliminate the chance of surgical or other complications.

So don’t let uneasiness, worry or fear prevent you from getting the treatment you need. We invite you to contact our office at 801-370-0050 and schedule a FREE CONSULTATION to visit one-on-one with our dentist regarding your concerns.

We guarantee that this will be the easiest dental appointment you have ever had!
