Many people suffer from phobias relating to the dentist, which is why finding a gentle dentist is so important. At Landmark Dental Group, we offer a wide selection of services and treatments that are effective — but gentle. If you live or work in Santa Cruz, and happen to be looking for a new dentist, below is some information about Landmark that may help you with your decision.
Our Doctors and Staff are Skilled and Experienced
It isn’t just the doctors that make Landmark special. The caring and attentive staff are also there to make sure your visit is as comfortable and calm as possible. Whether you’re in need of a routine cleaning, or getting an implant, the doctors at Landmark Dental Group have the skills and experience to help. With excellent training, such as working at a community clinic, treating geriatric and medically compromised, and undergoing extensive continuing education, Dr. Trang Tran, DDS and Dr. Scott Weston, DDS will keep your mouth healthy with as little discomfort as possible.
We Have Services for Patients of All Ages
Landmark encourages parents to bring in children as soon as their first tooth appears. Pediatric services include dental sealants, cleanings, and education on how your child’s teeth develop. All of this is done with minimal discomfort, so you and your child have a pleasant experience. Similarly, Landmark offers gentle services for geriatric patients who may be dealing with sensitive health issues that include more advanced problems, such as gum recession, dry mouth and missing teeth.
We Offer Sedation Dentistry
If you still feel nervous — even about gentle services — Landmark has you covered with several sedation dentistry options. If you only require minimal sedation and / or need to drive yourself home, inhalation sedation will put your body and mind at ease during treatments. For a little more help, you can choose oral sedation with the help of a pill from the Valium family. This will make you feel much more relaxed during treatment, but you won’t be able to drive yourself home. Last, IV conscious sedation is the highest level of sedation Landmark offers. You are given a medication intravenously until you are anxiety-free. Again, you’ll need a ride home. All three options are conscious sedation, but you may fall asleep from being so relaxed.
You have enough to worry about, and going to the dentist shouldn’t be one of them. When you choose a gentle Santa Cruz dentist like Landmark, you know you’ll get treated right and experience very little discomfort.
