Oral Sedation Services

You don’t need to be afraid of going to the dentist anymore. Going to a dental office is a truly scary event for approximately 145 million people. But that’s a thing of the past. A visit to the dentist can now be relaxing and manageable. Dr. Rafoth has completed special training that allows him to safely treat dental fear. “It’s called Oral Conscious Sedation (OCS),” he explains. “Using a small pill, people can now have their dental care accomplished while they are totally relaxed and absolutely comfortable. Our patients are not put to sleep, but made sleepy with OCS.”

Dr. Rafoth adds, “I have always been very sensitive to my patients with high fear and apprehension, and now I can offer them a safe and even more comfortable experience. I feel so many good people are avoiding needed care due to fear. I am looking forward to helping these people visit the dentist with this safe and wonderful technique of anxiety-free dentistry.”Dr. Rafoth is a member of the most trusted and long-standing organization of its kind in dentistry, the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS). The purpose of DOCS is to provide the education necessary for dentists to supply needed care to the large population of people who are avoiding the dentist, and to improve their lives with better dental health.“Dentistry is very high-tech today, with all sorts of gadgets that can get the job done better and quicker,” adds Dr. Rafoth. “But now with Oral Conscious Sedation, I can safely bridge the gap between technology and comfort.”He also says, “You should see the look on the faces of my patients when they complete their care and they have a healthier mouth—it’s hard to describe. That look is why I love dentistry. I helped to change someone’s life.”
