Daydreams meets demand as hospitals eliminate block time for dentistry

By | Homepage Featured, News / Announcements | No Comments

As the healthcare industry continues to adjust and reprioritize services, more and more hospitals are deciding to reduce or eliminate block time for dentistry. With fewer resources and growing demand, pediatric dentistry under general anesthesia is experiencing dangerously long wait times as high as 3 to 6 months. Daydreams Pediatric Center was created to meet this challenge. We’re committed to providing one of the best facilities in the country for pediatric outpatient dental care and are adding additional surgery days to increase capacity and keep patient wait times as low as 1 to 2 weeks.

The typical child that comes to Daydreams is between 3 to 9 years old and will have anywhere from 3 to 20 cavities. It is estimated that 25% of children have dental decay before they even enter kindergarten. Daydreams’ state-of-the-art facility and in-house pediatric team of dentists, anesthesiologists, nurses, and dental assistants allow for each case to be completed in 1 to 2 hours. For families with insurance, the cost is about $500. However most patients use Healthy Kids Dental, which covers 100% of the patient’s cost. By removing the barriers of accessibility and affordability, children are able to receive a second chance at a healthy mouth.
