Fact #9: A DDS (or DMD) degree generally requires 4 years of dental school. Trainingto become an oral surgeon generally takes 4 additional years. Oral surgeons haveadditional training to perform facial reconstruction, trauma surgery, cosmetic procedures,head and neck cancer surgery, jaw surgery, and so they themselves can administer sedation anesthesia. But you do not have to be an oral surgeon to be fully qualified toremove wisdom teeth.Fact #10: All of Dr. Hendrickson's sedations are performed by Michael Call, a CertifiedRegistered Nurse Anesthetist (“CRNA”). Michael Call graduated with his CRNA degreein 1973 from the Mayo Clinic. Over the course of his career he has performed hundredsof thousands of sedations. While oral surgeons are licensed to perform their ownanesthesia, they often call on the skills of CRNAs, like Michael Call, when performingmore demanding procedures.###Please contact Dr. Hendrickson DDS through his counsel, Attorney Barnard N.
