Phoenix Denture Experts

Sedation can take the fear and pain out of dentistry.

It is safe, affordable, and makes dentistry comfortable. Also known as sleep dentistry, sedation dentistry helps eliminate the pain and fear commonly associated with dental visits by administering laughing gas(nitrous oxide) or an easy to swallow, small pill.

The hardest step for the fearful patient is coming to their first office visit. Often times, it has been years since a patient has been seen by a dentist. Sometimes embarrassment as much as anxiety will prevent individuals from seeing a dentist.

Dr. Herro and Dr. Santoro are compassionate and experienced Dentists, and will make every patient feel very comfortable.

I was a little embarrassed that I had not been to a dentist in quite a while but the staff made me feel very comfortable. Tammie, the dental hygienist, did an awesome job was very thorough and gentle. I will be going back for teeth whitening and look forward to regular visits. I also took my 6 year old daughter and they did a great job making her feel comfortable.

I feel very fortunate to have stumbled upon Dental on Central including Dr. Herro and his staff. After several not so good experiences I was somewhat discouraged with dentists. However since my first visit to Dental on Central I have felt very welcomed and have experienced nothing but professionalism and top notch dental care. I have been so impressed with Dr. Herro and his staff that I have referred many of my friends as well. In addition I actually look forward to my next visit!
