Sedation Dentistry in

Adults and children who have not been introduced properly - or at all to a good, professional, and comforting dental team may have a hard time going to the dentist. This is in part due to anxiety and fear of not knowing what to expect.

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation is recommended for patients undergoing long, complex, or invasive procedures. However, dental sedation can be the best option for an extremely nervous patient, as well. Our team uses laughing gas to help our patients relax. Laughing gas is a gentle sedation method administered through the nose and allows the patient to breathe in the gas. The gas puts patients in a state of calm, allowing the dentist to do all dental work without causing any discomfort or anxiety for the patient.

If a patient, old or young, tends to experience severe nervousness due to this being a very first visit or perhaps it has been many years since a previous traumatic experience, we as dental experts will make it our priority to make them as comfortable as possible before any treatment is started.

As far as young children are concerned, our staff is highly trained in calming techniques that may not require any sedatives. During the initial visit, we will get to know each child and introduce them to the dental team while making it a fun and educational experience.

No matter the treatment or procedure you need, you can rest easy knowing that we will do everything we can to help you relax in the dentist’s chair. Are you worried about feeling pain? We can make you comfortable and numb thanks to the latest local anesthesia techniques. Your safety and comfort are our highest priority, and every aspect of your care will be discussed with you in detail prior to treatment.

Review from Peter


I find all the employees at Greenbelt Dental Associates to be wonderfully warm, friendly and knowledgeable. Lydia is a wonderful at keeping track of appointments and billings. Alice is the most outstanding dental hygienist I have ever seen! She does extremely detailed, caring and painless work and makes my teeth feel like new. Dr. Galvan and Sandra have done superb, thorough work on my teeth and kept them in wonderful condition! I feel very blessed to have the employees at Greenbelt Dental Associates taking care of my dental needs.
Review from Sarah


My experience at Greenbelt Dental Associates is the absolute best. I have been going there for over 20 years, first with Dr. Allen (now retired), and now with Dr. Emma Galvan and Dr. Karl Meek. You will not be disappointed. They both are experienced dentists who know their business, and they insist on only the best standards in the office. I referred a friend recently who had some major dental issues, and my friend is very pleased with the services she is getting in this office. In addition, all the staff members are incredible. Lydia is the first person you will meet, and she handles scheduling and accounts with a smile and flexibility. Sandra is a dental assistant who will treat you kindly and with professionalism. Alice is the dental hygienist who has cleaned my teeth well for all these years.
