Patient Comfort and Sedation
Gentle, Friendly and Comfortable Care
Dentistry doesn’t have to be scary! We know a lot of people have had bad experiences with other dentists in the past, and that fear of dentistry can be a very real problem even for those who haven’t. That’s why we work hard to make our office stand apart from all others in terms of serving the comfort needs of our patients.
We will listen to you and treat you with compassion and respect. Our doctors and staff are gentle, kind and personable. They will take the time to explain procedures and all your options in detail so you can feel assured you are making the right decision.
You can relax with comfy pillows and blankets while in the chair and enjoy calming instrumental music—much of which was created by Dr. Herndon himself! We also offer complimentary beverages in our reception area and work hard to make sure you will not have to wait long.
Relaxing Sedation Options
If you need extra help relaxing—no matter what procedure you are having—you can take advantage of our sedation options, including oral sedation and intravenous (IV) sedation. Our doctors will help you determine which is best for your situation.
With oral sedation, you will be given an oral medication prior to your procedure that will reduce your anxiety and calm your nerves. This can be boosted with nitrous oxide, if needed.
Dr. Luscri is certified to administer IV sedation, which provides an even deeper level of relaxation. Patients who receive IV sedation usually do not recall any of their procedure afterward.
