We understand many people have extreme anxiety when seeing a dentist – so we offer sedation by a board-certified dental anesthesiologist. We can complete any treatment you need in the most comfortable settings. It also allows patients who need extensive work to complete the treatment in a single visit. Sedation is also beneficial to those who have physical or mental disabilities that make it difficult for them to receive dental care.
Visit Smile Gallery to see a sample of Dr. Koppikar’s art, and visit our patient reviews page to hear why Phoenix LOVES us! If you want to enjoy this level of care and expertise, please call (602) 954-8200 and schedule a consultation today.
