SOBA strives to provide a safe and stress-free environment for the dental provider. We allow you to perform high-quality dental care in the convenience of your office. We bring hospital-level care to the comfort of your very own dental practice.


Our anesthesiologists are dentist anesthesiologists

We have undergone extensive training in office-based anesthesia that allows us to provide the same quality care of a hospital in the dental office. We are very familiar with the dental environment. We understand dental surgical procedures because we have performed many of them ourselves.

Ability to keep your office open on day of dental surgeries

Keep your office open on day of dental surgeries for exams, hygiene checks, consults, etc.

Skip the hassle of hospital scheduling

Increase productivity of your practice by not having to deal with inconvenience of hospital scheduling.

The dental provider wont need to have or maintain a sedation permit

Having a separate anesthesiologist mitigates the need for time away from practice for sedation courses and the necessary fees to maintain a sedation permit.

Grow your practice

There is no need to refer out patients with behavior management challenges

Save your practice and patients money

Decreased costs for the patient result in increasing patient access to care. In-office anesthesia is a fraction of the cost of anesthesia in the hospital setting due to the lack of additional administrative and facility fees associated which can run as high as $6,000. SOBA’s anesthesia fees cover all aspects of the patient’s treatment including the medications and recovery.

See more patients

Dentists are able to see more patients using dental anesthesia because in-office anesthesia is more efficient than anesthesia administered at a typical hospital. On average, dentists are able to see two more patients compared to hospital visits.







What do I have to do to have a Dentist Anesthesiologist come in to my dental office?

Simply contact Southern Office-Based Anesthesia to schedule a meeting in your office to further discuss the details of patient care. If needed, we will also be happy to provide you and your staff with an office-based anesthesia orientation prior to initiating patient care.

How do I schedule a procedure?

When a patient is identified who may require office-based anesthesia services, your office staff should give us a call. During our correspondence, we will obtain some additional information about the patient and planned procedure. Most of the time this can be done by telephone, however, in some cases it may be necessary to schedule the consultation in your office so the anesthesiologist can better assess the physical status and airway of the patient. During the consultation, a review of the patient’s medical history will be conducted by the anesthesiologist.

What should I expect the day of the procedure?

Our anesthesiologists will arrive prior to the appointment and set up the operatory with the required equipment. This typically requires a small amount of space and will have minimal impact on operating and assisting.

A preoperative assessment and evaluation will be completed to review the medical history status of the patient. NPO status is confirmed and the anesthetic plan will be discussed with the patient.

Once the patient is ready for treatment, the anesthesiologist will begin administering medications and the operator will be able to begin treatment shortly thereafter.

Upon completion of the dental surgery, the patient will be recovered by the anesthesiologist/staff and subsequently discharged when the patient meets the necessary discharge criteria. Patients can be recovered in the same area or moved to a recovery area.
