Greetings from SuperCoder.com!
No, Medical Anesthesiologist cannot provide Dental Anesthesia for any dental procedures such as Dental Extract, Crown Placement, Pulpaping etc. As per the guidelines provided by ADA (American Dental Association), the administration of local anesthesia, sedation, and general anesthesia is an integral part of dental practice. Dentists should provide sedation and anesthesia in compliance with their state rules and regulations.
