Can simple dental precautions prevent death?

On July 19, 2016 CBS News reported another toddler that died at the dentist office in California.

“Another toddler failed to wake up after an dental procedure and that’s why we are so careful with our patients here at Urbach Pediatric Dentistry,” says Dr. Alan Urbach.

“We have been seeing a rash of these reports of toddlers going to the dentist and never making it home in the news lately and we never want that to happen to our kids. That’s why we insist on a full medical history every time they visit.

Parents often do not realize how even a small change in medications can make a big difference to a dental procedure, so please include everything that is happening in your child’s medical history so that we can make sure that your child, like all our generations we have been serving over 3 decades, make it safely home.”
