Imagine yourself relaxed, comfortable, and anxiety free!
Dr. Michael Min and our Vista Dental Care team understand that patients often feel anxious and nervous when they visit a dentist. That’s why we are totally focused on doing everything we possibly can to help you feel relaxed, comfortable, and virtually pain-free for any procedure. We tuck you in with a warm and cozy blanket and give you Bluetooth headphones for listening to music. And that’s just the beginning!
Relieving your Anxiety
Whether your anxiety is mild or severe, you’ll receive the most effective sedation for handling it. When you communicate honestly with us about your anxiety and fears, your dentist, Dr. Michael Min, can recommend the appropriate sedation option:
- Mild Anxiety – Nitrous oxide (commonly known as “laughing gas,”) is very effective for mild anxiety. The sedative is inhaled through a cup on your nose, producing a light-headed euphoric effect that wears off quickly after the procedure is completed. It’s an excellent pain reliever, too.
- Moderate Anxiety – Oral sedation in the form of pills is a popular option because it works quickly and doesn’t involve needles. Some anti-anxiety medications like Valium®, Ativan®, and other similar medications have an amnesic effect meaning you may not remember the procedure even though were conscious. Dr. Min has a license to administer oral sedation from the state of California.
- High Anxiety – If you have a more extreme form of anxiety, we will bring in a dental anesthesiologist to sedate you and put you to sleep for the treatment using IV Conscious Sedation. This method delivers the sedation by IV directly into the bloodstream, so the sedation effect is immediate. You won’t remember anything about the treatment procedure.
If you are nervous about getting injections of pain medication or antibiotics in your gums, Dr. Min will ease the pain of the injection with Dental Vibe, a special hand-held device that lessens the pain and fear associated with getting an injection in different areas of your mouth.
Dr. Min and his friendly and caring dental assistants will do everything in our power to ensure you are most comfortable before, during, and after the procedure. Read some of the many 5-star reviews from our patients and see how happy they are with their experiences at Vista Dental Care.
I recommend this location to anyone looking for a new dentist. It was my first time here and Dr. Min and his staff were very welcoming and very professional. I had a root canal done and it was completely pain free.
I've been coming here for about a year and a half, and Dr. Min and his staff are always so professional and accommodating. From routine filings to getting my wisdom teeth taken out, they've always taken the best care of me. I would recommend them to anyone.
The staff are always so friendly and helpful. My kids hate going to the dentist but they don't mind coming here. Dr. Min is great with kids off all ages. Thank you Vista Dental for all your hard work and great customer service
The waiting room is clean, bright, and has lot of space. The assistants are quick and helpful. The dentist was really nice. And we went into to get x-rays and to see the doctor right on our appointment time. I went here based on the google reviews and they are super accurate about this place, it's fantastic!
Great experience as I'm one who are so afraid of going to a dentist!! Love that they send reminders, they don't overbook patients, and the treatments are fast, painless and very professional. I finally found a dentist that I would not hesitate to see whenever I need any dental work done. The staff are passionate, the hygienist is great, and the waiting time is great! I highly recommend Vista Dental Care in Ontario!
