Choose the Best Sedation Dentist│Gentle Dental Care│CT

Why Choose Us

We are about quality. It’s about educating our patients. We want them to be independently able to care for their mouth. Dr. Peltzer, I love his dentistry, his quality of dentistry actually makes me feel comfortable whereas I have worked at offices where that quality isn’t there and that makes me uncomfortable to explain to a patient what we are doing, but here, I don’t have to worry about that. I always say I can go home at night and sleep in knowing that we did our job the way we are supposed to. Even though we are so centered on patient care, our dentistry is actually good. So I can feel good about that, so I know that we are taking care of both sides and a lot of offices lack that. I think that is really one of the most important things that we offer is our quality. We have patients that don’t want to sit in the chair, don’t want to come in the office, do not want our instruments in their mouth, I mean, the most extreme fear you can think of, that’s what we have on a daily basis. So when we are able to have a patient that comes in that can’t sit in our chair and I’m able to get to the point where I am personally working in their mouth, it is like so rewarding and I have so many patients that I can think of right now that makes me really feel that and to see them more comfortable cleaning their teeth properly, understanding that education that they need to really care for their mouth, is more rewarding than I could ever explain and I’m a mother so compared to that, I just love it. I love dentistry and I love working with patients who have a hard time with dentistry, to be able to see them come to a point where they are okay in the chair and not crying on the way in or out is awesome.

The Full Spectrum of Sedation

Although many dentists offer inhaled and oral sedation, very few have invested their time, education, and skills to become qualified to safely administer IV sedation. Gentle Dental Care offers every level of sedation to our patients to make them comfortable, physically and emotionally, so they can get the dental care they need without fear and pain. Assisted by our team of dental professionals, Dr. Peltzer is even able to provide excellent dental care to patients with special physical and emotional needs, including safe monitoring of all vital signs during procedures. Even patients with high blood pressure and diabetes can be assured that they are in very good hands.

Sedation dentistry also makes Gentle Dental Care the convenient place to go for complex or multi-phase procedures. With IV sedation, you can relax completely through multiple procedures in one visit, instead of needing to go through multiple appointments to get your teeth healthy and beautiful.
