At Brentwood Oral Surgery we understand that you may feel some anxiety about your treatment: the first question we hear from many patients is “Will it hurt?” Dr. Ian Matthew provides many options for pain management. Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. You may be comfortable using only local analgesics or you may choose to sleep during your procedure with the help of general anesthesia. Dr. Matthew and his surgical team members hold certifications in IV sedation and CPR. They have the skills and training necessary to administer medications safely and continually monitor you during your care and after.
The technology that drives dentistry has changed and improved over time. This is why at Brentwood Oral Surgery we feel that continuing education plays an important role in allowing us to provide the best patient care available. Dr. Matthew and his staff attend many seminars and training courses each year. We see these not only as necessary to stay up to date with BC certification requirements, but as opportunities to advance our skills.
