I have dental anxiety, do you offer laughing gas?

The central theme to our office philosophy is your comfort. Dr. Therese has met many patients who have stayed away from the dentist for quite some time (some of them over 20 years). Her calming demeanor, communication skills, and ability to perform most procedures with minimal discomfort, has helped many of these individuals to overcome their fears and regain their confidence. While we do not offer laughing gas or any other type of sedative, our comfortable amenities and office design will keep you relaxed, and our friendly, non-intimidating staff will treat you like family. During all dental procedures, and on request during hygiene procedures, we use high-strength topical numbing gel to pre-numb an area prior to administering local anesthetic (or "Novocaine"). Dr. Therese has also adopted a new technology known as the VibraJect Injection Comfort Solution, which has been shown to virtually eliminate the sensation of the anesthetic.
