Ninety million people in the U.S. don’t see a dentist because of fear. One million other people have conquered that same fear with a safe and effective treatment called oral sedation dentistry. David J. Harris, DDS, MSD has completed a comprehensive and rigorous training program in sedation dentistry through DOCS Education.
The process for patients is simple. After careful review of their medical history, Dr. Harris will choose the appropriate medication(s) and level of sedation to best meet the patient’s needs. The cost associated with the sedation will vary depending on the regimen used. Driven to their dental appointment by a companion on the second visit, the patient will most likely take a single tablet the night before their treatment. Additional medication will be administered when the patient arrives at our office the next morning. More medication may be given, depending on the duration of the procedure being performed.
When treatment is complete and the patient is ready to go home, their companion drives them back and stays with them until they are fully recovered (about 4-10 hours.) Due to amnesic properties of many of the medications; by the next day, patients have little-to-no memory of their time in the dental chair.
