Children are precious and have unique, often complex physiological, and psychological needs that differ from adults, especially during complex dental treatments. Here at the Smile Lodge we offer safe and effective sedation options to help your child complete their dental treatment. We are delighted to announce that we have achieved AAAASF accreditation and are one of the first pediatric dentistry offices in the country to do so. This demonstrates our passion for and commitment to the safety of our patients and their families.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) & the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) have partnered to offer an accreditation program for pediatric dental practices. This project leverages the shared values to create an enhanced culture of patient safety with respect to pediatric dentistry and improve practices and preparedness that will reduce the number of adverse incidents occurring with pediatric patients. The program aims to standardize practices in accredited pediatric dentistry clinics and distinguish AAPD members from those whose practices do not follow global standards. Together we look forward to being a driving force for pediatric dental patient safety worldwide and demonstrating to patient families our unwavering dedication to the safety of their children.
