Dr. Watkins' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Watkins "I am a licensed dentist who is trained in anesthesiology. I have dedicated a major part of my private practice to in-office general anesthesia and IV sedation for General Dentistry. After finishing dental school at Loma Linda School of Dentistry I realized the benefit of combining the tools of anesthesiology and dentistry, or "sedation dentistry." My anesthesiology training experience was completed at the following locations; the anesthesiology department and internal medicine department at Riverside County Regional Medical Center, the anesthesiology department at Loma Linda University Medical Center, and the Surgery Center for Dentistry at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. I have successfully treated thousands of patients over the years. I have experience in administering anesthesia for Endodontics (Root Canals), Periodontics (gum surgery), Implants, Oral Surgery, and pediatric procedures. I have three children of my own and my love and desire has been with treating children. I have seen tremendous benefit using general anesthesia for dentistry for children and adults."
