Are you afraid of the dentist? Have you put off necessary treatments because you want to avoid your discomfort?
Dental phobia is a common phenomenon and it is nothing to be ashamed of. Dr. Marvin Kaplan is experienced in many types of sedation dentistry methods that can help reduce anxiety, including oral and inhalation sedation options.
Sedation dentistry allows patients to reduce anxiety while remaining alert during their dental treatment. For many patients, sedation dentistry allows Dr. Kaplan to complete several procedures in one sitting, reducing their need to return for additional dentist office visits for the same treatment.

Our entire team is comitted to fostering a patient-focused environment where every patient feels like a part of our dental care family from the time they first walk in our door. We want you to feel safe, comfortable and confident in all the decisions you make regarding your dental health.

Understanding your oral health and the procedures you will receive can often reduce anxiety and put patients at ease.
We encourage open and honest communication and allow our patients to ask questions regarding their oral health prior to treatment. Dr. Kaplan always talks his patients through their procedures so they are always aware of what is going on.
Remember, avoiding routine dental checkups can lead to more complex dental issues. Biannual checkups can help you keep your gums and teeth healthy so you can avoid more advanced dental procedures.
