In a Tijuana dentist office, the Mexico Department of Health, will not allow a general dentist to preform IV sedation dentistry. It can only be done in a certified operating room, and under the direct supervision of a certified anesthesiologist, present to always check his heartrate and vital signs. This make it difficult for the vast majority of dentists in Tijuana to offer sedation dentistry. If the do, they try to do it in a clandestine manner, and hope they don’t get caught, because it will cause them to have the clinic closed. However, for the clinics of Mexico Dental Network, this is not a problem. One of our clinics is located in a building that has a small private hospital with 2 certified operating rooms. We can prep the patient in our clinic, and then take them into the hospital, and do the surgery with IV sedation, very easily.
