From Managing Director & Founder’s desk:
Live life smiling!” This is the motto that I passionately believe in. The reason for starting a Pediatric and Orthodontic Center is to treat children, teens and adults within one facility offering them the highest quality of pediatric and orthodontic care.
– Dr. Joy Antony
World Anesthesia Day commemorates the first successful demonstration of ether anesthesia on 16 October 1846, which took place at the Massachusetts General Hospital, home of the Harvard School of Medicine. This ranks as one of the most significant events in the history of medicine and the discovery made it possible for patients to obtain the benefits of treatment without the pain associated with an operation.
While pediatric dentistry has made great strides in making young patients’ dental visit experiences more relaxing, some children and teenagers still have difficulty with anxiety. Their anxiety, in turn, can make necessary care much harder to provide.
For difficult cases, many dental providers for children now incorporate a technique known as conscious sedation to help ease anxiety. With this technique, they’re able to perform procedures like cavity-filling or tooth-extraction that are more difficult with an anxiety-prone patient.
While general anesthesia creates a total loss of consciousness, conscious sedation uses precise medications to suppress consciousness at different levels ranging from light to deep suppression and create a relaxed state for the patient.
Conscious sedation is becoming a more widespread technique in both medicine and dentistry. Using it to ease a child’s anxiety increases the chances they’ll receive all the dental care they need without unpleasant memories of their visit that could follow them into later life.
At Dr. Joy Dental Clinic our Pediatric facility is the only dental center in Dubai offering:
- In-house IV Sedation supervised by a General Anesthetist from UK.
- Specialist Pediatric Dentists, highly qualified and experienced.
- Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Above all, we have created a fun environment for our young patients with dinosaur and underwater themed rooms, cartoon movies, games and a play area to keep them at ease. Our aim is to make every child love coming to the dentist.
