Everyone is a little nervous about dental treatment, don’t worry! Prescribing an appropriate anti-anxiety medication (such as Valium) can make any dental visit pleasant. We make every effort to treat patients in a comforting and stress-free environment.
Premedication with an anti-anxiety medication is by far the most practical way to manage dental anxiety. There is no extra charge. The patient must have a driver or go home by taxi after Valium® premedication, even though they will likely feel capable of driving. Full sedation (“going to sleep”) is expensive, impractical and unnecessary for the vast majority of patients.
