Sedation Dentistry An Overview
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation Dentistry is an option for people to receive necessary dental care in the most comfortable, relaxed manner using very safe and effective medications. Sedation Dentistry is more than just taking a pill before your appointment at Boulder Valley Dental Center. The first and most important step in the process is providing you a welcoming, warm, caring and personalized atmosphere from the moment we pick up the phone to meeting you in our office. We take the time you need to tell us about the story of your past experiences. We understand you fears, anxieties and concerns about having to go through the emotional process of receiving dental treatment.
Our entire team is hired and trained to provide the most judgment-free zone a dental office can provide. We take time to establish a relationship of trust with you. It’s only AFTER all that you then experience the benefits of Sedation Dentistry…without fear, without pain and without anxiety.
Dr. Tracey Hughes has been providing Sedation Dentistry for over 12 years. She is extremely understanding of everyone’s unique situation and has worked with hundreds of sedation patients, all with different stories of fears and anxieties which she has helped them overcome.
