Both doctors are licensed to provide local anesthesia, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), conscious sedation (twilight sleep), and general anesthesia.
Dr.’s Hunter and Paul McCord are certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). The surgical assistants are Certified Anesthesia Assistants by the American Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.

Discussing the anesthesia options that are available to each patient is part of the initial evaluation for all patients. The final level of anesthesia provided will be decided after a thorough review of the patient’s medical history and previous anesthesia experiences.
