For many Americans going to the dentist is a frightful event, even though dentistry has changed so much in the past years. Unfortunately, this is not enough for over 100 million people who avoid the dentist due to fear. Dr. Wilcox has provided sedation dentistry for many years with his hospital training background in general anesthesia. We have recently updated our techniques of anxiety-free dentistry. We are experiencing even better results now than previously. We have also implemented additional monitoring equipment to provide for the ultimate in patient safety.
Dr. Wilcox is a member of the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation - D.O.C.S. They provide advanced education that allows treatment using oral medicaitons to be totally relaxed and absolutely comfortable. We will have an extensive section coming to the website soon to more fully explain the techniques. We always welcome your questions or interest in sedation dentistry.
