Q. Will I feel any pain?
A. No, you will feel nothing.
Q. Will I be unconscious?
A. No, although you are in a state of sedation.
Q. Will I be monitored?
A. Yes, with sophisticated vital sign monitoring equipment and one of our team members is always with you the entire visit.
Q. How long will I be sedated?
A. Depending on your needs, from 2-6 hours
Q. Will someone need to accompany me?
A. Yes, you will need someone to accompany you due to the sedative effects of the sleeping pill.
Q. How does it work?
A. You are given a pill to take one hour prior to your dental appointment. Your companion will drive you to the office. When you arrive, you will be very drowsy. You will relax into a very comfortable chair, covered with a thick, warm cozy blanket. Your vital signs will be monitored. After you are comfortable, our experienced clinical team will take care of your dental needs. When your treatment is completed your companion will drive you home to finish your relaxing sleep.
Q. How long will it take?
A. By taking a pill an hour prior to your appointment you will already be relaxed when you arrive at the office. It will be necessary to be accompanied to and from the appointment by a friend or loved one. Depending on your individual needs, you will be relaxed and sedated for a short or long visit. This may allow treatment requiring six to eight visits to be accomplished in as little as one.
Q. Is it worth it?
A. Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way to provide complex dental care painlessly to any adult patient who has anxieties and fears about their dental care.
"I was deathly afraid of the dentist and my teeth were horrible. I was also very tired and unhealthy with infection in my gums. After just one visit, my smile is much better and I feel way healthier and have more energy." Dan C. Appleton WI.

I just wanted to thank you all for taking such good care of Corey. You did such a good job of taking something potentially traumatic to a lad and making it not so terrible. He actually said he can’t wait to come back to you guys. You're always there when I need you and I really appreciate it. Thank you!
