Patients know they can count on the team at Oral Health Associates for an exceptional dental care experience. Visiting your local Green Bay dentist does not have to be a chore. We offer sedation dentistry services to make your next appointment a more comfortable and hassle-free experience. Sedation dentistry helps patients relax and relieves the anxiety that many people have when visiting a Green Bay family dentist. Stress should not prevent you from receiving the cleaning, check-ups, and other care services you require. We offer multiple sedation options to suit the needs of each patient we see. Just mention that you are interested in sedation services when making an appointment to see Dr. Gregory Gardner, Dr. Mark Glime, Dr. Adam Koch, or Dr. Brian Koch.

A Better Care Experience For Every Patient

A surprising number of people experience stress and anxiety when undergoing dental care services. If you have ever felt this way, you are not alone. We are dedicated to making patients feel as comfortable as possible, so we offer oral and inhalation sedation options. Both have many advantages that make them ideal for patients:

  • Oral sedation: A single pill is taken a half hour prior to the appointment. This is a good option for patients who are afraid of needles. The patient remains conscious and deeply relaxed through the entire experience. Because of the sedative effect, the patient needs to be driven both to and from the appointment.
  • Inhalation sedation: Nitrous oxide has been used to relax patients for more than a century; it has been widely studied and is one of the safest forms of sedation available. It is administered through a mask placed over the patient’s nose. The patient experiences a deep, calm relaxation and may remember little to nothing of their appointment. The effects of the nitrous dissipates quickly and the patient can drive and return to normal activities.

COVID-19 Notice

Dear Patients:

We at Oral Health Associates hope this notice finds you and your family in good health. Over the last few months Green Bay has been through a lot, and we all are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. One thing that has not changed during this time is our commitment to the safety of you and our staff.

You may have noticed infection control has always been a top priority at our practice. Our established processes ensure you receive care that is both safe and comfortable. The COVID-19 pandemic is not the first contagious illness to have circulated our country, nor will it be the last. Over the lifetime of our practice we have successfully prevented the transmission of many infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Swine flu, H1N1, MERS, SARS in addition to our annual “flu season.” Furthermore, hepatitis in its many forms, HPV, herpes, etc. are all part of our everyday lives as your dental care team.

In addition to our standard and universal precautions we want to tell you of additional infection control procedures we have implemented. We follow the daily updates and recommendations of the American Dental Association, the CDC, and OSHA. You may notice the following changes at your next appointment:

  • ⦿ Our office will do a brief but thorough screening process prior to arriving at our office and when you arrive including taking your temperature.
  • ⦿ We have hand sanitizer present throughout our office including at the reception area when you enter and exit and ask that you please use it.
  • ⦿ We have removed difficult to clean items from our waiting rooms like magazines, children’s toys, etc.
  • ⦿ Social distancing will be considered as we allow increased space in our waiting room and the option to wait in your vehicle prior to your appointment.
  • ⦿ We request you please bring a mask for yourself to wear in our waiting room.
  • ⦿ Our staff will be wearing personal protective equipment at the highest available level which may include wearing masks and face shields for the entirety of your visit.
  • ⦿ We have installed multiple Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization Systems in our office which has proven very effective at safely filtering air within our office and killing many pathogens including SARS and other versions of coronaviruses.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you have regarding the steps we take to ensure the safety of everyone in our office. Thank you for being our patient and we look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.

Sincerely,

Oral Health Associates
