Your dentist at Cathedral Dental may give you the option of having your treatment under a general anaesthetic (GA).  This can be done as a day case in the day procedure unit (DPU) at either St John of God Hospital (SJOHG) Geraldton or the Geraldton Hospital.  This option is given due to many varying reasons.


  • Phobia of the dental clinic environment
  • Past traumatic experience
  • Paediatrics
  • Removal of wisdom teeth
  • Removal of teeth
  • Oral surgery and biopsies
  • Restorations
  • Periodontal
  • Root fillings
  • Crown and Bridge
  • Insertion of dentures
  • Full clearances

All these treatments can be done whilst you are asleep with a professional team taking care of you.  Dr Stephen Lawley has 30 years of experience in this form of dentistry.
