Dental anxiety affects up to 58% of the population and for some that can mean delaying or even avoiding the treatment they want or need.
Wish you could do more?
The changes in regulation to dental sedation recently mean providing safe and appropriate care for these patients can often mean a referral to elsewhere which provides a further barrier to your patients actually getting the treatment they need or want as they have to see someone new in an unfamiliar environment that is not necessarily as conveniently located for them as your practice. In addition it means a loss of revenue to yourself as someone else completes all their treatment.
Keep them in-house!
Dr. Gareth Crowther can visit your practice and provide IV sedation for your anxious patients whilst you complete the treatment they desperately want or need! Dr. Crowther has a Postgraduate Diploma in Conscious Sedation in Dentistry, maintains appropriate CPD and adheres to current regulation.
How does it work?
ASA class 1 & 2 patients can be treated safely in primary care by the use of IV midazolam provided that certain criteria are met. You will need to complete the IOSN form with the patient and also the pre-treatment suitability assessment form both of which can be obtained by clicking the contact us button below - please include a brief description of the case proposed, the patients medical staus and how many episodes of sedation you think you will need.
How much does it cost?
The cost is £397 per patient, per episode of sedation. Whether you factor this cost into your treatment plan overall or just pass it directly on to the patient is up to you. We can offer 0% finance up to 12 months on this also if that makes it a more accessible alternative.
