Single Day Dentistry
Our extensive hospital training (almost 20 years each at the Medical College of Pennsylvania Hospital) has given us tremendous insight into the connection between dental health and medical health. It also has provided us extensive experience that allows us to offer what we call Single Day Dentistry. This is a program that is dedicated to treating patients who are unable to be treated in the traditional dental office environment. By having their dental treatment performed in a hospital setting utilizing sedation or general anesthesia, there is a decreased need for multiple dental visits, as most or all of the treatment can be accomplished in a single treatment session.
The following individuals are candidates for this special program:
- Dental Phobic patients
- Medically compromised patients (e.g., cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, seizure disorders, uncontrolled diabetes, dementia, severe cardiovascular disorders), patients with local anesthetic allergies
- Mentally and/or physically challenged patients
- Patients that simply want to expedite their dental care by safely completing an extensive amount of treatment in a single visit
Single Day Dentistry is a multi-disciplinary program that utilizes dentists, medical doctors and medical support teams to safely provide quality dental care to the patient. The dentistry is performed by a team of specialists, including restorative-cosmetic dentists, periodontist, endodontist, oral surgeon and oral medicine dentist. Dr. Steven Hart and Dr. Robert Rose have privileges at the Main Line Health Hospitals. Depending on the patient's needs their dental treatment would either be in Bryn Mawr Hospital's out-patient Surgical Center or Operating Room.
