Dr. Kenney maintains a staff affiliation as an "Attending" at Lutheran General Hospital and Lutheran General Children's Hospital, as well as Active Staff at the Golf Surgicenter. These affiliations allow Dr.Kenney to utilize the outpatient day surgery facility to provide dental care for children who have special needs or are unable to cooperate for necessary dental care in an office setting. The anesthesia at both LGH and the Golf Surgicenter is provided by MD Pediatric subspecialty anesthesiologists from the same group. In this way a child can be completely asleep, and treated in a safe, controlled environment. This is no different than a child being put to sleep for ear tubes, tonsil/adenoid removal etc. Our office does offer Nitrous Oxide, or other light premedication if there is some anxiety on the part of the child, but they are able to cooperate in an office setting. Dr. Kenney is also "On Call" for the Pediatric Emergency Department at LGH. If your child were to incur a perioral injury, please let us know while you are on the way to the Hospital. That way we can help to advise you or even meet you and your child there or have you just come directly to our office.
