At Advanced Family Dentistry, we want you to be comfortable during your dental treatment, and offer sedation for patients with sensitive gag reflexes or overall anxiety. While most dental procedures do not require the patient to be under the influence of sedatives, some dental procedures or patients may require it.
Sedation can be administered in several ways including oral, IV and by use of nitrous oxide. We will take every care, with gentle treatment, to make sure you are relaxed and in control at all times.
All sedated patients are required to be accompanied, as the effect of sedatives may last for up to six hours or more. During this entire period, the patient should be under the watchful eye of their family member, friend or companion.
My family and I have known Dr. Kim as our family dentist for 15 years. I am now 79 years young and having root canals redone, tooth extraction and 7 new crowns. This has been a very technical and tedious procedure over several visits. Each one lasting at least 3 hours. Dr. Kim has a surgical room with equipment that would rival a hospital operating room. The most expressive part of the practice is Dr. Kim himself. He is overly qualified so can not be called just a dentist. He is and has always continued going back to school to qualify in all the new procedures available. Dr. Kim is the only dentist that I will trust to do all the work he is now doing for me. His staff is so caring and professional. You have no fears in his office because they are practicing every form of sanitizing. The office is over seen by a special lady called Helen that goes out of her way to walk you through scheduling, insurance and followup. What ever your dental needs, feel safe and secure in Dr. Kim’s hands. The best part of my on going procedures is the care and concern to my comfort and well-being
I highly recommend Dr. Kim and his staff. All my friends that I recommended only have the highest of praise for him. In this day and age Dr. Kim is number on my list.
