Sedation Dentistry in a Comfortable Setting

Early in his career, Dr. Starkey recognized that many patients feared going to the dentist because complex dental procedures such as implants, crowns, root canals, and extractions were routinely performed using local anesthetics. While this relieves pain, it does nothing to alleviate anxiety or fear. Oral sedation offers some relief but is not the best choice for many patients.

The solution is simple – offer sedation options usually not available in a dentist’s office to put patients at ease and remove anxiety from the equation. Dr. Starkey administers IV sedation, oral sedation, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), and local sedation in various combinations tailored to each patient’s needs to provide a positive experience with excellent results. He is fully qualified to administer, monitor, and adjust all forms of sedation, including IV sedation, with strict safety protocols always in place.

Serving Under-Represented Populations

Elderly individuals, the medically compromised, and those with special needs often avoid getting their teeth cleaned and repaired because they are uncomfortable with the limited sedation options available at most dental practices. At Starkey Sedation Dental, these patients have our utmost respect. We explain every procedure in detail and choose the ideal blend of sedation to alleviate anxiety without compromising patient health and safety.

Affordable Sedation Dentistry

While many dental practices offer oral sedation or nitrous oxide, sleep sedation and IV sedation are most often provided in a hospital or oral surgeon’s office, making them impractical and expensive. Dr. Starkey’s continuing education and experience permit him to offer sedation options in his dental office for far less than you would expect. His cost-conscious approach, integrity, and devotion to his patients’ comfort reduce anxiety and eliminate fear.
