A Better Dental Experience

Dental care should be an inviting and relaxing experience. Unfortunately, not everyone has had such positive interactions with the dental industry. Sometimes this is due to physical difficulties that the office was unable to accommodate. Sometimes severe anxiety keeps one from calling the dentist at all.

From our hospitality desk to our friendly service, we make sure you are comfortable throughout your entire visit. We offer a multitude of options for each service, in order to develop the treatment plan that fits you perfectly. We even offer sedation options for your office visits.

If you have any reason to avoid the dentist—any reason at all—we here at Distinctive Dental Services will do our very best to accommodate both you and your needs. You deserve complete health, and we’re here to help you attain it.


Sedation Dentistry for Your Comfort and Convenience

Here at Distinctive Dental Services, we offer more than just words of comfort. If you struggle with dental work for any reason, we can provide sedation dentistry to ease your time in the chair and allow you to access the quality healthcare that you deserve.

Sedation dentistry is an add-on, which you can request for almost any dental procedure, especially if you need several procedures at once. We will administer a light relaxant—either laughing gas or an oral sedative medication—that can ease muscle tension, calm breathing, and reduce anxiety.

You can enjoy the soothing comfort of sedation dentistry at your next appointment!


The smile you’ve always wanted
