About Dr. Konstantina S. Giesberg
Dr. Konstantina S. Giesberg, DDS, is a board-certified dentist anesthesiologist, having obtained a dental degree, followed by a specialty in dental anesthesiology. She has earned the privilege of becoming a Diplomate of the American Dental Board of Anesthesiology.
Dr. Giesberg obtained, with honors, her degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the University of Buffalo, NY. She then completed her General Practice Residency in Dentistry at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY. During this time, she recognized the need for advanced deep sedation and general anesthesia procedures to help manage pain and anxiety in patients for whom local anesthesia and lighter levels of sedation are ineffective or inappropriate.
Dr. Giesberg then furthered her studies at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center with a Specialty Program in Dental Anesthesiology, involving three years of concentration in deep sedation and general anesthesia. In addition, she completed training in Cardiology, Intensive Care Unit and Emergency Medicine, as well as Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Her clinical experience included a significant portion devoted to hospital operating room anesthesiology rotations as well as ambulatory anesthesia for dental patients. She was trained by medical anesthesiologists as well as by dentist anesthesiologists, and has applied hospital-level anesthesia standard of care to all patients whom not only had dental treatments but also medical surgeries. Some of the medical surgeries for which she conducted anesthesia services included: appendectomy, cholecystectomy, breast augmentation, gastric bypass, total abdominal hysterectomy, total hip replacement, spinal fusion and placement of pacemakers.
This clinical exposure and surgical casework experience helped develop Dr. Giesberg as a highly competent practitioner. She carefully evaluates each dental patient to determine and deliver the appropriate sedation/general anesthetic that is needed, and safely manage any potential complications that may rise. Dr. Giesberg specializes in delivering individually tailored anesthesia to all. She takes great pride in making each patient feel comfortable, while trying to understand each individual’s needs and anxieties. She is looking forward to meeting you at Northern Westchester Oral Surgery.
