Welcome to Oral Sedation Seminars


The fear and anxiety experienced by millions of Americans
receiving dental care is a well-documented reality.

In fact, approximately 30% of the American population needs
some form of anxiolysis or sedation to receive dental care
and only 60% of these people do well with nitrous oxide sedation alone.

This means that 34 million fearful patients are currently avoiding
routine and necessary dental visits*.
