Dr. Smith and Dr. Browning are the best. They genuinely care about making you comfortable and respect that going to the dentist can be anxiety inducing for some.

IV Sedation FAQs
Anxious patients no longer need to fear the dentist. It is possible for you to smile with confidence and chew without pain because the dental care you need can be completed while you’re completely relaxed and comfortable.
Sedation dentistry is the use of IV sedation medications administered during a dental procedure to relax and calm the dental patient throughout the treatment
Will I be unconscious?
No. You will be in an extremely relaxed state and will most likely not remember the appointment. However, you will be conscious and responsive the entire time.
Will I be monitored?
Yes, at all times. Your vital signs will be taken throughout the sedation appointment. One of our team members will always be with you.
Will someone need to accompany me to my appointment?
Yes, you will need a companion to drive you to and from your appointment.
How long will I remain sedated after my appointment?
Each person’s recovery time is different based on their body as well as the medications and dosages used. Plan on relaxing at home for the remainder of the day after your appointment. Have your companion stay with you until you’re fully recovered.
