The mouth is a very personal area and highly innervated. Many fearful children have had painful dental experiences. These experiences often lead them to have dental anxiety and to avoid the dentist. Many of these children will carry these fears well into their adult lives.

Anesthesia can be an adjunct to treatment for uncooperative children. Usually the fear of a protracted dental treatment and multiple local anesthetic shots can turn an otherwise cooperative child into a frightened and inconsolable patient. Anesthesia can help alleviate these anxieties in the face of extensive dental work. Children have natural fears of the unknown. Anything one can do to relieve these anxieties (for example bring a favorite blanket or toy) will greatly improve your child's experience.


Patients that are fearful, needle phobic, anxious, don't get numb, are gaggers, do not like someone working in their mouth, may require anesthesia.

Having a dentist anesthesiologist solely dedicated to the anesthesia allows for greater safety. The treating dentist will be relieved of the responsibilities of the anesthesia and will be able to focus on the dental procedures. In most cases, multiple visits may be condensed into a single appointment.

The familiar surroundings of your own dentist's office will also help you through this anxious time. You will not have to endure going to the intimidating hospital operating room at it's high cost. If you do not have a dentist you are completely satisfied with, Dr. Seifikar will refer you to any one of the excellent dentists he associates with in order to meet your special needs.


The special needs population is very diverse. The indications for sedation and anesthesia are just as varied. How they are pre-medicated (to get into the dental chair and have an IV started), induced (put to sleep), maintained (stay asleep) and emerge (wake up) is tailored to their needs and dental treatment requirements.

The special needs patient can be very challenging to treat in the general dental office environment. How Dr. Seifikar treats this patient population depends on their physical (wheelchair bound, contractures, uncontrolled movements, etc.) and mental ability to cope with entering the dental office or treatment room, and allowing an IV to be started.

Dr. Seifikar received formal training in providing anesthesia for special needs patients while in residency at the Center for Patients with Special Needs clinic in University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. He has extensive experience when it comes to treating special needs with conditions such as Mental Retardation, Autism, Cerebral palsy, Alzheimer, ADHD, ADD and Down syndrome.
