Tel. 1-787-474-8282 ext. 4895 office of the Medical Director
A certified anesthesiologist will be in charge of the anesthesia. We will help you to coordinate admission to the hospital. Services will be rendered in a same day basis; the patient will be admitted early in the morning. After treatment, your child will stay a few hours in the recovery room and then will be discharged with the proper clearance from the anesthesiologist.
The patient has to be pre-admitted to the hospital services one to two days before the procedures without staying at the hospital. For example, if the procedures will be performed on Friday, then the patient will get blood tests done on Wednesday before the procedure. These tests such as complete blood count, urinalysis, chest x rays, and in some cases, electrocardiograph must be done while fasting (patient must abstain from breakfast). A pediatrician will evaluate your child and his tests; He or she will then give us the clearance for the procedures to be performed. You can get some rest at your hotel after the tests are done and return to the hospital on that Friday, with your child abstaining from breakfast (fasting), for the comprehensive dental treatment. here.
