A Focus on Patient Comfort

We understand that going to the dentist can be a nerve-wracking experience for some patients. To calm nerves and provide comfortable treatment, we offer options in sedation dentistry. Nitrous oxide, oral sedation, or a combination of the two can be administered to induce relaxation and a pleasant patient experience. We also offer NuCalm®, which is an all-natural way to relax without the use of narcotics.
