Our sedation service
We offer prompt appointments thus avoiding lenghty waiting lists.
Both Mr Damian O'Shea and Mrs Sharon Till are trained and experienced in providing intravenous sedation. They are both members of the Society for the Advancement of Dental Anaesthesia and the Association of Dental Anaesthetists.
During your treatment under sedation you will be cared for by two clinicians. The first clinician is responsible for your sedation and the second is responsible for your dental treatment. This combined approach ensures that the quality and safety of your care is of the highest standards. Using this approach also means that all types of dentistry can be carried out while you are sedated, from small routine treatments to longer more complex cases.
At an initial consultation we will discuss all the options for your treatment.We will also fully assess your general health and ensure your suitability for treatment under sedation.
We accept referrals from other dentists to carry out treatment under intravenous sedation.
