Does your child have anxiety or fear of going to the dentist? While this can be a difficult time for you and your child, it is completely normal. We understand that many children suffer from dental anxiety and we have made it our mission to make the dental experience easier on children and their parents.

Our San Diego sedation dentists are specially trained to calm and care for anxious patients of all ages. We offer sedation dentistry options to help ease anxiety and pain, and make going to the dentist more comfortable for you and your child.

As pediatric sedation dentists, we have extensive training on pharmacology and patient care that allows us to provide your child with the appropriate level of sedation. Our doctors stay up to date in the latest and safest techniques through continued study and review of all levels of sedation.

San Diego Sedation Dentistry Dental Services


When you and your child come into our office, we’ll discuss what level and form of sedation dentistry will work for their specific situation. We’ll listen to your concerns and any important information regarding difficult past dental visits. Our doctors will then discuss what level of sedation (if any) will be needed to help your child at ease.

Important factors in this decision include:

 

  • Child’s level of anxiety
  • Past dental experiences
  • Child’s medical history
  • Parental concerns
  • Extent of dental care needed
