Meet Dr. Plavin

dr stanford plavin“I have dedicated my anesthesia practice to providing the highest standard of patient care and safety. I personally attempt meet with each patient to discuss his or her medical history and conduct a limited physical exam. I explain my patient’s treatment in careful detail and answer all questions in an  unhurried atmosphere. My goal is to provide quality anesthesia care to each patient, relieve any discomfort, and help our patients achieve a positive experience during their dental or oral surgical treatment.”
