Minimal Sedation Dentistry


At Highland Family Dental Care, we care about our patients and we listen to them. We understand that dental treatment for most people is not pleasant.  Dental phobia is very common. We do our best to provide our patients the best quality of care in a comfortable relaxing environment. We utilize the use of nitrous oxide known as laughing gas, as well as sedative pills.  For patients who can safely be minimally sedated, we do prescribe pills to get our patients relaxed.  If a patient needs to be sedated at a higher level, then we will use an out-patient surgical center for either IV sedation or general anesthesia, which the anesthesia is done by a specialist as dental needs are taken care of.
