All of us at Marks Family Dentistry try to be as gentle and caring as possible-but we know that some people have such a fear of treatment that they go for years without visiting the dentist. They can avoid the fear in this way, but this only leads to more advanced problems in the future.
All 3 of the dentists here have taken advanced courses in sedation techniques that relax you so much that many of our most fearful patients actually fall asleep during their treatment. The important point is the medication doesn't put them to sleep. It is very safe, effective and can head off those major problems that avoiding dental visits can cause.
