Dr. Casey: One of the things I really stress in my practice is making sure that the patient is as comfortable as possible. Sometimes that means as little as a warm blanket or being able to listen to some music while you're having your work done. Pretty much anything that doesn't interfere with our work we will happily do for you while you're here.
We also use nitrous oxide sedation and with the nitrous can use some conscious sedation with medication to make you very comfortable, very sleepy. Many times it has an amnesic affect where you don't even remember that you've come to the dentist. Many, many people that are super nervous and have that anxiety can come to the dentist comfortably, and they can get over that fear. Some of those people later on don't need that extra sedation, but if they do, we're happy to do it for the life of that patient, be able to make them comfortable and happy while we're doing the work.
No matter what level of anxiety the patient has, we have different ways to make sure that they're calm and comfortable while they come to see us and get their dentistry.

Comfort & Quality You Can Depend On
All of us at Dental Health of Fianna want you to receive the kind of quality dental care your smile needs to shine brightly. If you’re nervous about dental care, we understand, and we’ll do whatever we can to help.
Oral conscious sedation is one of our fantastic comfort options for patients with dental anxiety. Our dentist will prescribe a small, easy-to-swallow pill for you to take before you arrive at our office. By the time your appointment begins, you’ll feel relaxed and your mind will be at ease. You’ll remain fully awake and able to communicate with our staff, although you may not remember much about your appointment afterward.
Besides sedation, our relaxed dentist office features several patient-friendly amenities that will help you feel right at home. We have flat-screen TVs and headsets in our patient care areas to take your mind off dentistry. Plus, you can nestle under a cozy blanket for a warm and soothing experience. You can even take advantage of bottled water or an individually brewed cup of coffee!
