This 8,000-square-foot center is located at 1st Avenue and 24th Street in New York City features nine patient treatment rooms and two fully equipped sedation suites to provide both inhaled and intravenous sedation administered under the supervision of anesthesiologists.

Staffed by multidisciplinary faculty, the center’s patients are cared for by faculty at NYU College of Dentistry with expertise in treating people with disabilities. The center opened in February.
