Dr. Brian Huang, DDS - Manhattan Beach, CABrian Huang, DDS, is an experienced dentist anesthesiologist skilled in administering all forms of sedation, from general anesthesia to light sedation, aimed at maximizing patient comfort during dental care.

"Most people do not know that anesthesia was originally developed by dentists, who wanted to eliminate the discomfort their patients felt during dental procedures. Because I began my career as a dentist, I understand the particular needs and concerns of dental patients. There are many reasons why patients would opt for sedation during dental care. They may have a medical or behavioral condition, or they simply may have had a bad dental experience. Many young children are just too skittish to sit still. My training as a dentist anesthesiologist qualifies me to deliver minimal to moderate sedation safely and effectively in the dental office setting."
