Hulse Dental Surgery

Surgery Line: 865.360.1119

East Tennessee Children's Hospital (ETCH)

Unfortunately, many children suffer from serious, potentially painful dental diseases. Unlike such health conditions as colds or flu, dental diseases won't go away on their own. When treatment is required for a serious dental condition, sedation or general anesthesia may be recommended to make delivery of that required treatment possible in a safe and comfortable manner. Without treatment dental diseases can adversely affect, learning, communication, nutrition and other activities necessary for normal growth and development. If your child comes to our office and requires further dental procedures then you are encouraged to make an appointment with Dr. Evon Hulse. Dr. Hulse has had hospital privileges at East Tennessee Children's Hospital since 2008 and has had close to ten years experience working in a hospital environment.  When you come to our office we will give you a packet for ETCH and give your information to our surgery coordinator, Constance. It is important that you contact Constance and follow all of the necessary steps to setup your appointment at the hospital.

How long will my child be in the hospital?

Dental Surgery is an outpatient procedure so you will only be in the hospital for the day of the procedure.​

Will my child need a follow up appointment after surgery?

The next visit to the dentist will be for their routine recall. If you are concerned that your child may be experiencing pain please call our office and speak with an assistant.

Who will schedule my child's appointment?

Our surgery coordinator, Constance, will schedule the appointment and is available for any questions you might have. A few days before your appointment a staff member from Children's Hospital will call to tell you what time to arrive (approximately 3 hours before the surgery). They will also give you detailed instructions on food intake before the surgery.
