Our Advanced Training Makes the Difference

Once you've experienced sedation dentistry with Dr. Carlson, you'll probably never be afraid to go to the dentist again.

You'll be sedated just enough to be unaware of the treatment, as if you were relaxing. You'll wake up refreshed, with little or no memory of what was accomplished. Because you are completely comfortable, Dr. Carlson can do years of dental treatments in as little as one or two visits.

Dr. Carlson can replace crowns or dentures, restore sore gums to good health, whiten yellow or stained teeth, fix a chipped tooth, and more. People with very busy schedules can get the dental care they need, easily and quickly.

Imagine being able to smile with confidence and chew your food without pain. No wonder so many patients say:

"Thank you, Dr. Carlson. Sedation dentistry changed my life."

Dr. Richard Carlson

Dr. Carlson will give you a small pill to take an hour prior to your dental appointment. Your companion will accompany you to the office. By the time you arrive, you will be very drowsy.

When you arrive in our office, you will be escorted into the comfort room, covered with a thick, warm blanket and placed on a monitor to watch your vital signs. After you are comfortable, Dr. Carlson and the experienced clinical team at Richard Carlson DMD will take care of your dental needs.

When your treatment is completed, your companion will return you home to finish your comfortable, relaxing day.
