Seeking to help these patients Dr. Pessin became certified in conscious sedation. At our office we perform dozens of sedation visits a year, often completing a patient’s work in one stress free visit. This is one of the most rewarding services we offer, with patients who are effusive in their gratitude for finally being able to go to the dentist again. Check out our testimonial page to read how sedation dentistry has changed the lives of our patients.
