General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry Asleep

Let's face the facts! Nobody likes having dental work done - the injections, the noise, the anxiety!!

Now imagine having all your dentistry completed while relaxing in a comfortable twilight sleep state listening to soothing music under a warm blanket. This is the experience that we routinely provide for our patients.


Gentle Dental Care While You Sleep

At Arvanitis and Associates we have been providing the utmost Dental Care in the most relaxing environment possible since 1990.

It’s no wonder that we have been voted “Best Dental Office” almost every year since the KW Record first began reader polling.

Our staff of Dentists, Dental Anesthesiologist and Hygienists provide all the services you might require of a dental office and we provide all of these services while you sleep.

We offer the following types of sedation:

  • Mild Sedation with Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen
  • Mild Sedation with an Oral medication
  • IV Moderate Sedation.
  • IV Deep Sedation

Patients who have used sedation find that they leave the office feeling rested and calm. If this sounds like the kind of experience you're looking for, please call and book a consultation today.
