Dr. Targ
I am a board-certified anesthesiologist who specializes in sedating children at the offices of
my dentist partners. Using ultra-compact anesthesia and monitoring equipment, I have
sedated at least 15,000 children with sevoflurane inhalation anesthesia over the past 20
years, providing safe and convenient care in a comfortable and familiar setting.

Being a father to my three daughters and caring for my young patients each day are the
greatest honors of my life - children are the future of our world. All children deserve
safe, effective, and compassionate medical care which allows them to grow up in good
health and accomplish their goals, and I take my role in this very seriously. I am happy
to work with my colleagues at Bay Area Kids Dentist to achieve our shared vision of
providing the highest quality, compassionate care to the children in our communities.

Born and raised in the Bay Area, I graduated from Stanford University with a degree in
Biophysics and Biochemistry. I received my medical training from the University of
California at San Francisco (UCSF) which included medical school, anesthesia
residency, research fellowship, and faculty appointments to the UCSF Anesthesia
Department. I then held a similar faculty position at the Stanford Anesthesia
Department. Since 1999, I have continuously been a member of the Anesthesiology
Department at O’Connor Hospital in San Jose.

My scientific publications include over 30 peer-reviewed anesthesiology articles, book
chapters, and abstracts. I am certified in advanced cardiac life support (ACLS/PALS)
and have a current California Dental Board “General Anesthesia Permit.”
