Mission Statement

After a decade of providing patient care in different environments such as military, private practice, clinics, and hospitals, it is certain to me that the most underserved population are the children, special needs patients, and patients with severe phobias for dental treatment.
We, at the Dental Surgical Center of Medina, recognize the importance of access to care for this unique patient population. Our mission is to provide the best patient care, where patient comfort and safety is our number one priority.

Patient Resources

General anesthesia is a way of giving medicine so the person is “asleep” and doesn’t feel anything, not even pain. Usually, a gas is inhaled through a mask, but sometimes it is given by an IV (intravenous) or with a syringe. Anesthesiologist's use this way of giving medicine when surgeons operate so patients don’t feel any pain or remember what happened during the surgery. (See “When is general Anesthesia needed”).
• Many insurance plans, but not all of them cover general anesthesia for dentistry, so it’s important to talk about the financial details before the dental work is done.
• We will talk with you about ways to pay for the general anesthesia if it is needed. The cost varies, and is separate from the cost of the dentistry.
The nurse who works with the anesthesiologist will call you 1 to 3 days before surgery to tell you the exact time to be here. At that time it is very important to tell the nurse if the patient is taking any medicines or has been sick recently. Please keep the whole day open on the appointment date. Arrange for someone else to care for other children in the family. Ask another responsible adult to come with you, so you can safely be driven home after surgery.

Surgeon Resources

At the Dental Surgical Center of Medina, we thrive to provide the best patient care by assisting in making the patient surgeries safe and efficient. This includes, but not limited to: starting surgeries on time, short room turn over time, and patients safely discharged upon full recovery.

In order to accomplish the above, we are asking surgeons to follow the following protocols:

1. Please call our office at (330) 952-1737, as soon as you have a patient for surgery.

2. Provide our staff with patient information and give estimated time required for surgery.

3. Patients are welcome to contact us through our office phone number on our website: www.medinasurgical.com.

4. We will contact patients to give instructions and answer any questions patients may have.

5. A Physical is required within 30 days of surgery, this follows accreditation standard.
Please use provided H&P form. H&P form is downloadable under Patient Resource: "Forms" link.

6. Two days prior to surgery date, our office will confirm the appointment and review pre-operative instruction
with the patient.

7. Surgeons, please arrive with an assistant. We provide all equipment and supplies. Our circulator nurse is
very knowledgable, but you will feel more comforatable working with your own assistant.

8. We asked that patient and surgeon to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to scheduled appointment time.
