Pediatric Dentistry Surgeries Now at Memorial
Memorial Hospital, in partnership with Pediatric and Adolescent Dentistry, is now performing operative dental care for pediatric dentistry patients, rounding out the wide-range of dental care offered to the region.
Kevin Weitzel, DMD, MS, and Emily Burns, DDS, MS, of Pediatric and Adolescent Dentistry, 445 Allenby Drive in Marysville, became members of the Memorial Hospital Medical Staff last year. Recently they started providing comprehensive dental care and surgeries at the hospital, specifically for patients who are unable to tolerate in-office treatment or those with special healthcare requirements.
In addition to providing routine dental care, the doctors are experienced in the treatment of dental trauma, extensive dental rehabilitation, and caring for children with special needs. Many times sedation or general anesthesia is required to treat young infants or children, as well as adolescents with special needs. As members of the Memorial Medical Staff, Dr. Weitzel and Dr. Burns are able to perform procedures or surgery at Memorial Hospital, if needed.
“The children of Union County are the real winners of this partnership between our practice and Memorial,” commented Weitzel. “By bringing this service to our area, the families we serve can stay local for their child’s procedure. In an already high-stress time, this opportunity allows us to decrease that worry and enable the family to focus on recovery.”
