"I enjoyed the practice, nice place, great dentist and hygienist. My only problem with them is they looked into my insurance before my appointment and quoted me a certain price. When I went to check out my cost was double. They said they assumed I had the premium dental insurance. Not a big deal, the treatment I received was great, just a little disappointed that they assumed anything. To pay double makes a big difference."- H.S. / Google / Nov 12, 2020
"First - Start Smiling Dentistry (Drs. Sayeg and Hahn) took over the practice of Dr. Paul Isler, who was my dentist for more than 40 years until he retired several months ago. My first experience with Start Smiling was having a painful rear molar with a long-ago crown extracted- the procedure was well done and healed quickly. This afternoon I visited Start Smiling Dental for a routine 3x/year dental hygiene. My hygienist, who I met for the first time, was Tanya - she did a careful and thorough cleaning of my 87-year-old teeth. So far I couldn't be more pleased with this practice and I highly recommend them"- M.H. / Google / Oct 21, 2020

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.
