Discover a New Approach to Dental Care
You can find relief at our practice no matter the reason for your anxiety. You should feel comfortable physically and mentally when you visit us. To help with that, we offer a few ways to make your next dental exam or other service a little easier:
- Schedule a “Happy” Visit First – If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, we welcome you to schedule an appointment to meet Dr. Brian Patten and the rest of our team. Then you can decide if you want to come back for a dental checkup.
- Take Advantage of Our Longer Appointments – Sitting through oral care can feel overwhelming at times. With a longer appointment, you can take breaks whenever you want to stay in control of the situation.
- Use One of Our Sedation Options – Dental sedation prevents pain, stops gagging, and helps you stay calm and relaxed. With inhaled sedation (laughing gas), oral sedation, or IV sedation (with assistance from a dental anesthesiologist), you can find the right option for you.
- Browse Our Comfort Menu – Choose from a variety of comfort options, including lip balm, cozy blankets and pillows, stress balls, and water.
