Capital Pediatric Dentistry follows and actually exceeds the protocol and criteria mandated by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the Dental Board of California for safe performance of IV sedation in the dental office.

Our office is equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment including: a pulse oximeter (blood oxygen monitor), a capnograph (respiration monitor), an electrocardiogram (heart monitor) and a sphygmomanometer (blood pressure monitor) as well as resuscitative medications and equipment. In fact, our office has been specifically built to safely provide IV sedation to children including a separate recovery room for post-operative care and an emergency generator in case of power outage.

Dr. Crippen is certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and maintains a certificate in IV “conscious” sedation issued by the Dental Board of California. He is also certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS).

Complete safety & Comfort

Sedation dentistry is not just for anxiety.

All of your dental work can be done in a single visit in a safe & fun environment.

This type of dentistry is great for those who have anxiety, a low pain threshold, can’t sit still in a dentist’s chair, someone with very sensitive teeth, those with a strong gag reflex or anyone needing an extensive amount of dental work. Patients with special needs due to physical, medical, developmental or cognitive issues also need and deserve special consideration.
