Dental anxiety or dental phobia is a real problem for many people, preventing them from seeking the dental care they need. Unfortunately, this often results in complex dental problems, including tooth loss, that have a detrimental effect on daily quality of life.
Dr. Brent Engelberg and Dr. Jennifer Mullarkey offer sedation dentistry options to enable those who suffer with dental anxiety to feel relaxed and comfortable during their treatment. Sedation dentistry can also be used to perform several dental treatments during a single visit.
Restoring your dental health can have many benefits and improve your overall quality of life.
As a busy home inspector it is sometimes difficult to find the time to maintain my oral hygiene. The flexible hours and electronic follow-up your office provides makes it much easier for me to schedule and keep appointments without having to worry about losing an inspection.
After a recent visit, I received an e-mail notice the other day to complete a survey regarding my experience. Instead of filling out the survey, I thought it would be more beneficial to let you know that my visit on December 11 was quite pleasant. Laura did a great job of making me feel relaxed as she turned on the chair back massager. My blood pressure is usually 150/90 when I walk into your office, this time it was 124/70. She took extra time to update my x-rays and then started to work cleaning my teeth. She kept me advised or her progress, was very gentle and before I knew it, she was finished. She even complimented me on the positive results of my flossing. What a way to start the day.
You have a great staff doc and your chairside manner isn’t too shabby either. The professionalism you demonstrate clearly filters down to your staff; it makes it easy for me to send them your way when someone needs your expertise."Thomas M.
"Drs. Engelberg and Mularkey are a fantastic duo. As a fellow dental professional I have the pleasure of working with them and seeing their fine dentistry. I can honestly say that they are of the highest caliber dentists and genuinely care about their patients. You can feel confident in choosing their practice."Emily S.
"This office truly cares about patients. I hate the dentist. So much so I make my husband come to help calm me down. This office is great with patients like me. They truly understand how difficult it can be for patients and will help to make you feel at ease. I will not go anywhere else. This office is no longer close to our new home but I will drive to come here. I have tried may offices that say they understand how I feel. Dr. Engleberg truly cares about his patients and understand how stressful it can be for people like me. I recommend this office to anyone who asks for a recommendation."Km H.
"Best dental office ever! This is a great dental practice, Dr. Engelberg is awesome, his hygienists are wonderful and his office staff is warm and inviting. I actually look forward to seeing everyone when I go in for an appointment.
Dr. Engelberg is extremely knowledgeable and always thoroughly explains procedures before and during the time the work is being done. He's the best dentist I've ever had! My whole family goes to him and absolutely loves him!"Kate F.
"This is a great office. From the moment you walk in the door into the spa-like atmosphere, you are welcomed like family. Just had a crown done by Dr. Mullarkey, which was one of the best dental experiences I have ever had. She took her time, was very patient, and virtually painless. Pam is my favorite hygienist!! Love the warm lavender towels at the end of the appointments. If you are looking for a new dentist, I highly recommend this practice!!"Linda D.
Sedation Dentistry What to Expect
Nitrous oxide: known as “laughing gas”, nitrous oxide allows patients to feel completely relaxed during treatment while remaining awake and cooperative during treatment. The effects of sedation are only experienced while the mask is in place, subsiding quickly once removed.
Drs. Engelberg and Mullarkey will discuss your personal concerns and fears prior to your treatment and recommend the appropriate sedation option. If you have been avoiding the dentist for some time, schedule a consultation with Dr. Engelberg or Dr. Mullarkey and begin the process of restoring your natural smile.
