Sedation dentistry.

We understand that visiting the dentist can be a stressful, overwhelming or even frightening experience. At Northfield Dental Clinic, we want you to feel relaxed, assured, and comfortable during your dental visits, which is why we offer sedation dentistry options to allow you to tailor your experience to fit your needs.

Both Dr. Rebecca Booker and Dr. Aaron Cooper practice oral sedation dentistry and can guide you on the method of sedation that best fits your individual needs. There are various sedative methods available to help you feel more relaxed, comfortable, and calm. A few examples include Either Ativan (Lorazepam) or Halcion (Triazolam), which commonly make patients feel drowsy and relaxed during their dental treatments.

If you are receiving sedation dentistry services, we ask that you please arrive at our Nanaimo dental clinic at least one hour prior to your appointment. All patients receiving sedation dentistry are required to have a friend or relative accompany them to and from our office. If you’d like more information on our sedation dentistry, please contact our office.

All FAQs
Does your clinic offer sedation options?

Yes! We offer two options to make your appointment more comfortable. We can administer oral sedatives one hour prior to your appointment that will make you quite relaxed and calm for your dental treatment. You will be required to have a responsible adult accompany you to and from your appointment if you take oral sedatives. We also administer nitrous oxide known as “laughing gas” for patients who would prefer to leave and go about their day immediately after their appointment with no after-effects.

Do you do wisdom tooth extractions?

Yes! Most wisdom tooth extractions can be done in our office. Very occasionally we may need to refer a patient to a specialist to extract wisdom teeth.

How soon can I be seen if I have an emergency?

We always make our best efforts to see dental emergencies on the same day. Although this cannot be guaranteed, we will see you to assess your dental emergency as soon as we possibly can. Pain, swelling, bleeding, or redness may indicate a dental emergency.

Which methods of payment are accepted?

We accept cash, cheque, VISA, Mastercard and AMEX.
