About

Dental anxiety, or fear of the dentist, shouldn’t keep a patient from receiving necessary oral care. Asleep for Dentistry is here to help. At our Burlington dental clinic, we specialize in various methods of anxiety management, including sedation dentistry, so that our patients can comfortably receive the dental treatment they need.

Our goal is to reduce the amount of anxiety associated with dental treatment. Sleep dentistry is a safe and practical means to reduce anxiety. Our staff is extensively trained to provide patients with the professional care and attention they need to make their visit as simple and comfortable as possible. We customize the type of sedation to each patient in order to meet their individual needs, while doing so safely and effectively.

Ask your dentist if a visit to us is right for you, or contact us to schedule a consultation! We are always happy to hear from new patients.


Asleep for Dentistry’s Mission

Our mission is to provide a peaceful sanctuary for patients who have trouble coping in a traditional dental setting. Our sole purpose is to reduce anxiety associated with dental treatment by using safe and reliable methods. We believe that our patients deserve the highest quality of oral care.
