Sedation Dentists

Dental related anxiety is common among children and adults, and some are so fearful they refuse to see a dentist all together. As a matter of fact, the Dental Fears Research Clinic in Washington state estimates that 5-8% of Americans completely avoid getting an examination done by an oral health care provider, leading to a variety of medical issues down the road. Here at Great Neck & Mid-Island Dental Associates, our experienced board certified anesthesiologists Dr. Gordon Barnes and Dr. Abra DiLisio help to manage a patient’s uneasiness with IV sedation dentistry — a technique that administers relaxation medication directly into a patient’s bloodstream and is monitored from start to finish. This enables the dentist to provide the person with the treatment they need to have a healthy smile once again.
