We do have some sedation options. One sedation option that is very popular is (inaudible) in the office. We do that as a courtesy in our office because our goal is to always make people as comfortable as possible in our office. If that is going to make them more comfortable, then we just do that for them at no cost. There are some other options as well, (inaudible) is another pretty popular thing for people to do.
So, we do have a few different options. Really, our main focus is for people that suffer from anxiety, is just to make sure that we go slow, that we explain what we're going to do, and that we treat them like we would want to be treated. Usually by doing those things, we do have a very high success rate. I mean being able to have people overcome their fears and their anxiety.
I had bad experiences also when I was young at a dental office, and that's one thing that kind of motivated me to become a dentist, is I knew that there was a different or a better way. I'm very sensitive to people who have anxiety, fears, and so we do our best to just make sure that we're patient and we go slow. Like I said, we've had a tremendous amount of success in our office. I think people overcome those fears.

Dental Sedation Sets Anxious Minds at Ease
Sedation can make the difference between getting the dental care you need and putting your smile at risk. Dental sedation will relax your body and help you feel at ease during your visit. We offer two levels of dental sedation – both completely safe to use under our professional supervision.
Inhaled sedation is our mildest form of sedation. It uses “laughing gas” that you’ll breathe in through a comfortable mask before your treatment. In just a few minutes, you’ll feel a euphoria that will help make your treatment much more pleasant. This type of sedation is safe for patients of all ages – even nervous children – and can help make anyone feel more comfortable during their visit.
Oral conscious sedation uses medication in pill form to relax patients who have a higher level of dental fear. It is also effective for patients undergoing longer, more complicated procedures (such as oral surgery). You’ll take the medication before your appointment so it has time to take effect. By the time your treatment begins, you will feel very relaxed, even to the point of grogginess.
Enjoy Our Other Comfort Options
In addition to dental sedation, we offer a variety of patient-friendly amenities, including:
- Heated dental chairs for a comforting touch
- Massage chairs for all-over relaxation
- Head and neck massages to relieve tension
- Private operatories to give you peace of mind
- TVs and music for your entertainment
