Infection Control

For Your Comfort

It is our commitment to you that every dental visit is a pleasant experience. Upon entering our spacious and comfortable reception area, you will be invited to enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee or tea. You are welcome to enjoy one of many current magazines or watch television. Freshen-up in our “designer” restroom or simply check-out the interesting wall hangings and displays.

You will be escorted to the treatment area by one of our experienced, licensed dental hygienists or assistants. These dental health professionals will give you their undivided attention throughout your procedure. To make our comfortable dental chairs even more comfortable, we offer special neck pillows. Clean, soft blankets are also available.

The anxious dental patient may wish to take advantage of Nitrous Oxide sedation. Often called laughing gas, nitrous oxide is pleasant smelling, safe, and totally reversible. It puts the patient in a conscious state of well-being and calmness. There are no side effects. After a few minutes of breathing pure oxygen, the patient is back to normal.

Dr. Goris may decide that oral sedation is right for you. A little pill is taken by mouth one hour prior to the dental procedure. This light sedation may last for up to 6 hours so it is imperative that you have someone drive you to and from your appointment.

Remember, we are here to make your visit a pleasant one. Please express to us any problems or concerns you have so that we can better serve you.
