General Sedation

For some patients, receiving dental care safely, comfortably, and without undo anxiety and fear can be a big challenge!  For the dental family at Big Sky Smile Center, there is a safe way to experience pain-free dentistry! Big Sky Smile Center is excited to collaborate with the amazing team at Signature Anesthesia to provide an unparallel service to our family of patients.  By utilizing Dr. Ryan Larsen, his associates (they are dentists who have been trained extensively in the specialized field of anesthesia), and their skilled and compassionate team at Signature Anesthesia, our team can provide dentistry, at our office in Miles City, to very anxious and fearful patients!  Dr. Larsen and his traveling team sedate our patients using general anesthesia (the patient is put in an unconscious state and all vitals are continuously monitored by Dr. Larsen or his associate doctors) which allows our doctors to complete multiple restorations during an hour or two long appointment, and the patient won’t remember anything – no fear, no anxiety, no pain!  This is an especially wonderful service for our younger patients that require extensive dental work, but are extremely fearful and anxious!!    

Dr. Ryan Larsen graduated from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. After graduating dental school, Dr. Larsen completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency through Lutheran Medical Center in Tucson, AZ. After being in private practice for a period of time he later completed a CODA accredited, hospital-based residency in Anesthesiology for Dentistry at Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY where he was named Chief Resident. After completing his training in anesthesiology, Dr. Larsen returned to Montana and started Signature Anesthesia where he provides independent, general anesthesia and sedation services for dentists throughout Montana! 

If you would like to receive pain-free dentistry, please call our Miles City office to schedule an appointment!  Signature Anesthesia provides their services in our office several times throughout the year!
