*Parents are not allowed in the sedation or IV treatment rooms during dental procedures that require sedation options such as nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, or deep sedation (IV sedation). These sedation options are administered by trained pediatric dental specialists and their qualified and experienced staff, in a controlled environment that ensures the safety and comfort of the child. This allows the dental team to closely monitor the sedation levels and provide the necessary care without any distractions, which is why parents are not permitted in the sedation or IV treatment rooms.
