The Importance of a Qualified Dental Anesthesiologist
Receiving general anesthesia during dental procedures can be exceptionally effective for managing anxiety and fear, as well as allowing multiple treatments during one appointment. However, it is important that it is provided by a professional with proper training. At Dr. Clint Newman's practice in Nashville, TN, sedation is administered by Dr. Matthew Yezerski, a dental anesthesiologist who is certified to provide general anesthesia by the Tennessee Dental Board and the Kentucky Board of Dentistry. His extensive training allows him to perform all necessary precautions, appropriate care methods, and treatment for any emergencies that arise. Dr. Yezerski is a trusted professional who can provide safe, sedation typically only available through hospitals for our pediatric and adult patients in the comfort and convenience of our dental office.

Limiting Risk for Complications
Dental anesthesia is complex and it is of the utmost importance that it is only administered by a certified anesthesiologist. Many patients do not realize that when anesthesia is provided by an inexperienced dentist, it may leave patients at a higher risk for serious complications caused by lack of oxygen and other concerns.
However, when administered by a certified professional, general anesthesia is typically considered a very safe form of sedation. Dr. Yezerski will only utilize approved anesthesia drugs while closely monitoring your blood pressure, breathing, and other bodily functions to ensure your well-being.
Dr. Clint Newman is proud to offer his patients the peace of mind associated with sedation provided by a board-certified dental anesthesiologist.
Dental anesthesia allows patients to undergo necessary care in the most relaxed state possible. While under sedation, patients will typically experience no pain and will remain unconscious during the procedure. Dr. Yezerski's extensive training has given him the knowledge to formulate the best level of sedation for each patient, providing the most comfortable experience possible for general, restorative, or cosmetic treatments.
Instead of traveling to an unfamiliar hospital, patients can receive professional care in the comfort of our dental office. Dr. Yezerski will come in on the day of your appointment accompanied by NOBA's state-of-the-art mobile equipment for the highest-quality sedation care.
