We strive to be a place of Extraordinary Service and Beautiful Smiles for all generations of patients! To accomplish this, we ensure an exceptional experience in a comfortable environment, backed by a professional team whose members work together towards a common goal: Your Optimal Oral Health and Vibrant Smile!

Our ambition is to assist you in recapturing, maintaining and improving your smile to any degree you choose and desire. 
By blending art, science and modern technology, we aim to create function and aesthetics on a foundation of oral health, today and tomorrow.

Sedation Dentistry and General Anesthesia for Patient Convenience

Dr. Rahimi knows that everyone needs a healthy smile, but understands that many people have dental anxieties or phobias that make keeping a smile healthy difficult. Visiting your dentist regularly for examinations and treatments is crucial in maintaining your oral health. However, when people have a fear of going to the dentist, they put off or altogether avoid these visits. In order to assist patients with anxieties and make the services we provide as comfortable as possible, Papillon Dental Arts offers sedation dentistry and general anesthesia to their patients as needed.

With the help of our on-call anesthesiologist, Dr. Mary Satuito, our practice can provide sedation and general anesthesia to make our patients more comfortable for their visit. For mild to moderate dental anxieties, our Lakeside dentist can provide nitrous oxide. Nitrous creates a blissful sense in patients that makes their visit more comfortable. This treatment does not fully put the patient into unconsciousness, which could be a concern for some patients. If the dental phobia a patient experiences is severe enough that they prefer stronger sedation, however, we also are able to provide intravenous sedation or general anesthesia to meet these needs.

These sedation options are also perfect for performing certain procedures, allowing us to prevent other discomfort as well. Nitrous oxide, IV sedation, and general anesthesia can be of great service to patients during procedures like root canal treatment and dental implant placement.

Patient Comfort Is a Top Priority

Being able to provide different sedation options is one of the ways Papillon Dental Arts keeps our patients’ comfort a priority.

Our Lakeside dentist wants your visit to be as convenient and relaxing as possible. Our staff is caring and friendly throughout your dental visit, explaining every procedure thoroughly when asked. These procedures, even down to prophylaxis, are performed with an emphasis on quality of the work delivered. Dr. Rahimi makes sure that there is plenty of time scheduled for your visit to answer all questions or concerns, conduct each treatment with complete precision, and ensure quality of the work you receive.
