(HealthDay News) -- The American Dental Association suggests you ask these questions of your dentist before your child's office procedure.
Who will provide the preoperative evaluation of my child, including taking a full medical history?
How long before the office visit should my child avoid food or drink?
Will my child take sedating medication at home before the procedure? If so, how should I monitor the child?
What experience does the sedation provider have? Does this experience meet guidelines from the American Dental Association?
Does staff assisting in the procedure have current training in emergency resuscitation?
