We are well aware that for many people the dentist is their least favourite place to be!! As well as having a team who always try to put people at ease, both our dentists and our head nurse have had additional post-graduate training in conscious sedation from the Society for the Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry.

Conscious sedation uses medications to help you relax to an appropriate level during a procedure. Intravenous sedation also provides a retrograde amnesia affect meaning that you won’t remember much of the procedure afterwards. So for most people afterwards it feels like they just went to the dentist to have a nice little snooze!!

It is part of the rules that you must have an escort to take you home and look after you all day too! A great excuse to put your feet up for the day. Doctors’s orders!!
