"Came in there with UNREAL pain. when I mean Unreal I mean I couldn't open my mouth without screaming nerve pain. They took care of me like you couldn't believe. I was in severe pain and immediately a swarm of people to take care of me. From giving me a squish ball to squeeze on to putting an ice pack on my sweating forehead from the pain. AND OK YOU CAN WATCH TV WHILE THEY WORK ON YOU? EXCUSE ME? THAT IS INNOVATION AT ITS PURIST FORM. 100/10, I am forever in their debt."- T.K. / Google / Mar 06, 2018
"Very welcoming first visit to this dental practice. From the scheduling and estimation of out of pocket expenses with Rebecca, to the intake and photos with Deysha, to the sit down and chat with Dr. Sayeg, this practice is very patient focused. They offer you coffee upon arrival, give you a paraffin hand treatment during the waiting period, and set up Netflix for you during your cleaning. Dr. Sayeg is thorough yet takes a conservative approach to general wellness dentistry, and I appreciated his honesty on what was necessary and unnecessary. I will definitely return and have already scheduled an appointment for my 3 and 5 year old over Spring Break with Dr. Cherof. As a Sandy Springs local, I'm thrilled to have found this little gem of a dental practice and hope it becomes a long lasting place for my family."- A.N. / Google / Mar 02, 2018
Oral conscious sedation techniques are Start Smiling dental facility's top choice for sedation dentistry. This can mean nitrous oxide, commonly referred to as laughing gas, or prescription medication provided to the patient before their treatment begins to reduce their anxiety towards what will be taking place. Both techniques will allow the patient to remain at ease and completely relaxed while remaining awake and conscious. Oral conscious sedation can also allow for a patient to be sedated during their procedures, but able to drive themselves home after the effects of the sedation have worn off.
