"After all of the knee-in-the-chest extractions, drill and fill, and other painful procedures, I became hesitant of showing my smile because the appearance only left me with embarrassment. A year ago, my wife needed dental work, and due to us relocating, we followed a recommendation from a local hospital. She came back and only spoke of the professionalism and positive force that your facility maintained. Reluctantly, I finally decided to visit you. To my surprise, your up-to-date procedures and painless techniques left me speechless. The end result is that I am very grateful that you helped to return my smile, and feel confident once again."

"I wanted to thank you for recommending sedation dentistry. It was very tranquil. During the sedation, I did not experience any queasiness. I remember nothing. I was excited that following the appointment, I did not experience any side effects. I was neither tired nor sick, which I truly appreciated because other anesthetics have made me very nauseous afterwards. Thank you so much for providing the opportunity to have this available."

"If you have a fear of dentists, hygienists, or dental work, this is the place for you! They are KIND -- unheard of in my previous experiences!"
Dr. Barbat and her team in Shelby Township, MI believe that every dental visit should be a positive experience.

"We provide oral sedation in pill form so needles are not used to administer the medication. The experience is totally relaxing and recovery is quick with little or no memory of treatment afterwards. In our new office, we have a specially designed relaxation room that patients love because it surrounds them in comfort throughout the visit. Soft music, aromatherapy, and low lighting accentuate the tranquil effects of oral sedation. Patients are covered with a warm blanket and given a pillow so they feel pampered while treatment becomes a dream come true!"
- Dr. Barbat
Our office makes your comfort a priority at all times. In addition to advanced training through the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, Dr Barbat is very sensitive to patient concerns. For those who experience anxiety or fear associated with dental visits, we offer several options for added comfort.
Oral Sedation - Provides total relaxation throughout dental procedures.
Specially-Designed Total Relaxation Room
Nitrous Oxide - Also referred to as "laughing gas", this relaxation method reduces anxiety during treatment.
Patient Relaxation - Chair massagers, relaxation videos and beverages add to tranquil visits.
In pill form, Oral Sedation is given to you to swallow upon arrival at our office. Before treatment begins, you will feel very relaxed.
We make you comfortable in our Total Relaxation Room. While your vital signs are monitored, our experienced team cares for your dental needs. Once your treatment is complete, your companion will return you home to complete a brief recovery time.
Will I feel any pain?
Standard numbing medications are given once you are in a totally tranquil state. This ensures you are both relaxed and comfortable throughout treatment.
Will I be unconscious?
No, you are fully responsive to voices, yet very relaxed.
Will I be monitored?
Yes, with sophisticated vital sign monitoring equipment and one of our trained team members throughout the visit.
How long will I be in this relaxed state?
Depending on your needs, from 2-6 hours. The recovery is quite quick, however. After a brief nap at home, you should feel refreshed and back to normal.
Will someone need to accompany me?
Yes, you will need someone to accompany you due to the effects of the medication.
