There is a better way!

Sedation is a safe, affordable method to find the courage you need to complete your dental care. Dr. Ian Fawcett is certified in the art of Oral Conscious Sedation. After an initial evaluation of your health history and vital signs, you will be given a prescription that you will begin taking the night before. You will need someone to drive you to and from your appointment.
 
After you arrive, the entire team at Hickory Hills is committed to your success. You will be monitored with a pulse oxometer that will follow your vital signs, You are partially awake and partially asleep. You will drift in and out of sleep, responding to verbal questions when asked.
