Dental Anxiety

We recognize that many people are nervous about receiving dental treatment. We have treated many patients with dental phobia, including those who have not seen a dentist for decades out of fear. All of our providers use best practices in dental anxiety management. Please note that at this time we do not offer laughing gas (nitrous oxide) or IV sedation in our office, but we can provide a referral if it is necessary for you. Support is available; call 267-399-3521.

Managing Dental Worries and Stress

We have The Wand® Computer Assisted Anesthesia Delivery System for patients who need local anesthesia and have a fear of dental needles.
