Your Choice In Sedation and Anesthesia Care In Facial Surgery – AOFS
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons perform the majority of in-office sedation within the practice of dentistry. Dr. Nordstrom has had formal anesthesia training in the hospital setting at Oregon Health and Sciences University. This training was a formal full-time (80 hours per week) rotation administered by the Department of Anesthesiology at OHSU. It was within the medical residency training program for four months duration (with a month dedicated to pediatrics.)
In addition to this, Dr. Nordstrom has an active medical license and was a previous member of the emergency airway management team at a Level 1 Trauma Center. He maintains an active General Anesthesia Permit, as well as an IV Sedation permit in Alaska. At AOFS, in-office anesthesia will be provided by a qualified provider with hospital-grade monitoring equipment. Not everyone’s case will be appropriate for a clinic setting — in that scenario, AOFS has the ability to provide your care at a local hospital.
