So comforts here at the office. We actually have a comfort menu that we like to pass out that you can look through and see if there's something that's going to make your visit with us more comfortable. So we have simple things like movies or listening to Pandora music with noise canceling headphones. Blankets and pillows, things like that just to make anyone more comfortable. Then we also have sedation options. So from something as simple as laughing gas, which means you can drive yourself home, to taking an oral sedation, so a pill that will give you sedation for about six to eight hours, all the way up to we have IV sedation so you can be completely out and have your dental work done. Whatever is going to help you get back to dental health. Especially patients that have maybe been away from the dentist for a while because of anxiety or knowing that there might be a lot going on. Sometimes those sedation options are just a nice way to come in and get it all taken care of and have a pleasant experience in the process.
We always greet you with a smile and encourage you to enjoy amenities like a beverage station in our waiting room. In our treatment rooms, we use a combination of the latest dental technology and clear communication about our procedures to put you at ease.
That said, some folks still feel dental anxiety. And that’s OK. We’ve got additional options like noise-canceling headphones and dental sedation that can soothe your nerves.
