Sedation for Dental Anxiety in Westborough, MA

Dental sedation is an effective treatment method for anxious patients in our office. We typically use dental sedation for lengthy dental procedures, but we can also offer sedation as needed for more routine treatments.

Sedation also offers many advantages:

  • Pain-free dental care
  • Efficient treatment
  • Anxiety relief
  • Reduction in the gag reflex

Patients will not remember their procedure under sedation. Some patients will fall asleep during their treatment because they feel so relaxed.

If patients do not have severe fear or anxiety, we can recommend other methods to calm patients during their appointments. We welcome patients to bring headphones and music they can listen to during their treatment. Patients can also bring a loved one with them to be there for their appointment.

“I had my first visit to your practice yesterday, I was greeted by a smiling and very friendly staff. I changed dentists due to insurance restrictions and wondered if I was settling, I left there knowing I hadn’t settled at all. The hygienist was gentle and caring and helped me feel at ease, and when the doctor came in, I felt like I was with someone I’d known for years. What a relief! Bravo!”


“First visit, and they were amazing. My son and I both had appointments. They were very good and pointed out things my other dentist ignored. An amazing office with very friendly people.”
-Karl L.
“The doctor and his team are the best. From 1st visit to my 4th visit, every time staff is helpful and welcomes you with a smile that makes you come back. Had a good experience with the entire team. They went above and beyond to take care of cleaning and much more stuff. I am glad I choose them they are the best. Highly recommend.”
-Neerav P.

“I just had my 1st visit here yesterday and I am SO happy I found them! I have gone to 3 different dentist offices in the past year because of how I was treated and judged, but when I told them my story, they were warm, welcoming, and so understanding. The staff here are amazing and helpful and very informative. Even though this was my 1st time here, I can already tell I will be in great hands.”
