Sedation Dentistry in De Pere, WI
It's no secret that dental fear and anxiety are very real concerns for millions of people across the country. Although dental fears can develop in a number of different ways, we acknowledge your feelings and understand that they have probably limited your access to the routine dental care you need to stay healthy.
In many cases, this can create an unfortunate cycle. When routine preventive care is missed, painful and scary dental emergencies are more likely. If your only experiences with dental care are occurring when you are in pain and worried, it's no wonder that the fear continues!
We want to put a stop to that cycle and make the care you need accessible and stress-free. Sedation dentistry allows you to have the dental care you need and deserve, and our friendly and compassionate dentist, Dr. Chad, is approachable and easy to talk to.
We encourage you to give us a call and let us know about your needs and concerns. We'll happily schedule a meet and greet appointment so you can meet Dr. Chad and the rest of our staff and take a look around our office. We'll go at your pace and help you feel comfortable and confident getting your dental care.
Sedation Dentistry—Your Key to Worry-Free Dentistry

Whether you’re faced with fears about seeing the dentist or a longer visit to take care of multiple treatments, sedation dentistry is a great way to help eliminate unnecessary stress and make the most efficient use of your appointment time.
How Does Oral Sedation Dentistry Work?
Dr. Chad will prescribe a calming medication in the form of a pill that you will take prior to your appointment. You'll receive specific instructions regarding the medication from Dr. Chad since there are different options available.
The medication will make you feel somewhat drowsy and groggy, but it won't make you lose consciousness and you'll still be able to ask questions and respond to our team.
What patients like best about the medication is that it:
- Reduces feelings of stress and anxiety
- Makes it feel like time is flying by
- Makes you less aware of the sounds and other sensory input of the office that people often find stressful
- Reduces your memory of the appointment after it is complete
Because the medication makes you drowsy, you will need a friend or family member to drive you to and from the appointment. We recommend that you take it easy for the rest of the day so that the medication has time to wear off.
