For many people, seeing a dentist can be an emotional and frightening event. For some young children or those with a disability, it can be nearly impossible to tolerate a dental procedure. Whether due to fear and anxiety, disability, or difficulty with compliance, a dental appointment with sedation may be the solution.
Laughing Gas is the lowest level of sedation offered; it is often very effective in individuals with mild dental anxiety
Oral Sedation also provides a mild twilight sensation and an amnesiac effect; most patients feel very relaxed and have little recollection of their procedure
IV Sedation is a type of conscious sedation that gives a feeling of relaxation and also has an amnesiac effect; although they are not asleep and able to respond to questions and commands, most people have little to no memory of the appointment later on
General Anaesthesia (GA) is the most profound level of sedation available in dentistry. This is the same type of sedation used in hospital procedures. The patient is unconscious and unresponsive until recovery after the procedure. Normally, this is the type of sedation used on children and also adults who do not respond well to conscious sedation (IV)
I had a dental emergency and they were able to get me in right away. Everyone was kind, considerate, and caring!
Would highly recommend Barrie smile center all of the staff are great and make sure you get exactly what you want! I had 8 porcelain veneers done by Dr. Eisen and there perfect I love them thank you!
Super friendly and professional staff. Modern up to date equipment. Direct billing. Hey Would highly recommend this clinic, especially for young kids.
Super friendly staff, immaculate facility, lots of options. Overall great environment and have a new sense of comfort continuing on with my dental care at this office after today.
I recently visited here as I (was) looking for a new dentist. Honestly, I have to say one of the best experiences I have had at a dental clinic. I am certainly no longer looking for a dentist as I have found a great one. The staff are extremely friendly and make you feel welcome and comfortable. They were able to give me an idea of the cost prior to coming in so I knew what to expect. Stephanie (the dental hygienist) is an absolute wonder. You can tell she is very experienced and able to do the cleanings very quickly and efficiently. I would certainly recommend this clinic to any friends / family or anyone who is looking for a new dentist. They even have TV's on the ceiling so you can watch while they work.
Wonderful experience! Highly recommend. Extremely friendly, customer oriented staff that truly care about their patients and the success of their dental health. Lina was extremely welcoming and Steph is just phenomenal (dental hygienist) - she is smart, on the ball, friendly, informative, caring, funny yet professional and just plain awesome! Found our new dental office from now on!
Professional..friendly..accommodating..what more can I say... they are great! My whole family loves Stephanie. Thanks Lina and the friendly front desk staff for your patience you are always welcoming. Thank you
Dr Ko and his team are top notch. I was really worried about bringing my 3 year old for her cavity filling. Dr Ko was very reassuring and they made my daughter extremely comfortable and she did very well in their hands. Dr Ko is highly recommended in my eyes.
Kindest staff I've ever met. Everyone in the clinic greeted me and made me feel very welcomed as a new patient. I even received a tour of their facility. The checkup, cleaning and consultation were explained and completed very thoroughly. It was truly a 5 star experience from beginning to end. Keep up the great work!
Very friendly and professional. They were very thorough in explaining each step, and asked me several times if I was comfortable or if I needed anything. Everyone seemed happy to be there, and all of this translated to a positive experience for myself.
I have been a patient here for a number of years. After three dental implants, I now visit every four months for dental hygiene and a checkup. Everyone here does their job professionally with making me feel comfortable their priority. I thank them all and recommend them to anyone looking for dental care.
