At Westgate Family Dental, patient comfort is one of our highest priorities. We offer a large array of cozy comforts in addition to Conscious Sedation for those nervous folks that are white knuckled just by the thought of going to the dentist. We know that the dental office isn’t anybody’s desired place to be, so we do our best to generate the most relaxed atmosphere imaginable.
Our patients are like our family and when you come to Westgate Family Dental we want you to feel as if you are at home as much as humanly possible. We offer comfy plush leather operatory chairs coupled with a beautiful view of our 100 year old oak tree and plush green backyard. If you want to just unwind, close your eyes and disconnect, we also offer dark sunglasses and wireless headphones to drain out the clamor of the busy dental office. Got ESPN? We do! We have 32″ HD TV’s in all of our operatories that viewable when lying back in the dental chair. You can kick back, relax and watch your favorite daytime television program and use our wireless headphones to tune everything out but the TV! Got Pandora on your smartphone? We have FREE Wi-Fi and an available iPad for your convenience to listen to commercial free Pandora during your visit!
For clinical and health standards we tend to keep our office a little bit on the chilly side so we offer all of our patients plush fleece blankets, pillows and neck rests. We do our best to create an atmosphere of comfort and we want more than anything for you to feel like you are somewhere other than the dental office!
In addition to our cozy perks, we also offer IV Conscious Sedation and Oral Conscious Sedation. IV Conscious Sedation is safe, reversible and puts you in a relaxing rest while we efficiently complete your dentistry. IV Conscious Sedation is administered through an IV and has an almost immediate effect. Dr. Yarbrough was specifically educated to administer IV Sedation during a General Practice Residency program he attended after dental school. Overall, this is the best way to take care of your dentistry, not only does it relax you, it also relaxes the jaw muscles and makes for a speedier and pain free recovery!!
For a more cost effective approach, we also offer oral sedation which has almost the same sedative effect as IV Sedation excluding the immediate result. Both sedation practices require an escort to drive you to and from your appointment.
We also offer Nitrous Oxide (gas) which doesn’t require a companion, after your procedure we place you on Oxygen which safely removes the Nitrous from your system. You are done and are able to drive home immediately following your procedure. In addition to our sedation options we always administer a local anesthetic to numb the area of the mouth we are treating. However, this doesn’t mean you have to stay numb the rest of the day because we also offer Oraverse, an injectible reversing agent that eliminates your numbness!
