For some children and adults, real anxiety related to a dentist visit can make visiting the dentist a very difficult proposition.  Young children don't understand that the dental care is required and maybe have developed a fear of the dentist from popular culture or their misinformed peers.  Likewise for some adults, they may have a serious phobia, or they might not have the mental capacity to cope with the sensations, or confinement while receiving dental care.  

For those patients and their caregivers, we want to offer you a safe and gentle option.  Our in-house anaesthetist can administer a mild sedation, it is completely safe.  The patient remains awake, but they are in a mental state which is very relaxed and not fully aware of the dental care they are receiving.

We don't know of any other dentist that can offer that level of care and experience for people with these special needs.
