Dental Care “While Sleeping”
When a child is unable to tolerate a routine dental visit and requires general anesthesia.

We have over 100 years of accumulative service in the medical and dental industry and pride ourselves in advancing not only our technical skills but the interpersonal aspects of patient care as well.

Children 1st Dental & Surgery Center | Houston TX

We provide both an anesthesia team and a dental team for your child’s care. Our dual team approach includes an anesthesiologist who regulates your child’s safe, comfortable sleep, and a dentist who completes the dental care in an efficient, professional manner. Picture two doctors working simultaneously for the benefit of your child.
That’s the Children 1st difference!
