Discover How You Can Be Happy At The Dentist
It really is possible to have a worry-free dental visit! Here are a few of the ways we’ll make you glad you stopped by.
Safe Sedation Options – Over 20 years ago, Dr. Thrasher was a frontrunner in providing dental sedation to anxious patients in the Waco, TX area. His goal was and still is to make all patients relax while receiving the treatment they need to benefit their smiles. Today, he offers two levels of sedation to help calm your nerves, including:
- Inhaled sedation, which Dr. Thrasher calls “relaxing air,” is easily inhaled and immediately eliminates any stress you may be feeling.
- Oral conscious sedation, which allows you to remain awake yet drowsy and fully soothed during your procedure. This is taken in pill form.
Longer Appointments – By providing extra time during your visit, you can feel free to take breaks if you like or ask any questions before, during, or after your treatments. It’s just another way we gladly provide personalized treatment for you.
Friendly Staff and Comfort Options – All throughout your visit in our cozy lodge-style office, you can ask any member of our staff for blankets or pillows while relaxing in our massage chairs. They’ll be more than happy to provide anything you like to make your visit completely stress-free.
