If you are searching for a dental provider who will listen to your concerns about your child’s oral health, makes them feel empowered when it comes to their own care, and makes certain you are always well informed when it comes down to making a decision, we are the dental home for you.
Here at South Gaston Pediatric Dentistry, we want every visit to be enjoyable, educational, and 100% positive for your child. Our mission is to help children develop the right habits for a healthy future while addressing any problems present, doing it all in an environment that is safe and welcoming. If you feel your child would best be served by a pediatric dentist, give us a call.
Simply put, children have different needs than adults, both physically and emotionally. To be a pediatric dentist, one must complete a standard dental school program and then complete an additional two to three years of training focused exclusively on the treatment of children from infancy through their teenage years. Our doctors have completed this training and know how to create early dental experiences that put your child at ease while building confidence and knowledge. We are confident that we offer the best care for your child.
Dr. Cangemi was born to be an anesthesiologist in a dental practice. It might sound odd, but he has been interested in both anesthesiology and dentistry since as far back as he can remember. He completed dental school at the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry, where he received the Grover C. Hunter Jr. Award for academic and clinical excellence in Periodontics. He then completed a residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry, also at the University of North Carolina. It was after he began his private practice that he decided to get his certification in intravenous sedation.
He soon decided that he needed to truly pursue both of his passions, and as a result, he sold his practice and began his anesthesiology residency and a masters program in anesthesiology at Ohio State University. This was a comprehensive program that allowed him to become a master in all areas of medical anesthesiology. After obtaining a Certificate of Residency in Anesthesiology as well as a Master’s Degree in Anesthesiology from Ohio State University, he began providing anesthesiology services for general dentists, pediatric dentists, and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.
Dr. Cangemi is a Diplomate of the National Dental Board of Anesthesiology, an American Dental Society of Anesthesiology Fellow, a member of the Anesthesia Advisory Committee and an Anesthesia Examiner for the North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners, an author of publications in dental and anesthesiology journals, and an anesthesia lecturer. He is certified in pediatric advanced life support, advanced cardiac life support, and basic life support.
