Maryland Sedation Dentistry Reviews
I’m a huge baby when it comes to going to the dentist but I found the Maryland Sedation Dentist and all of that changed (not really – they just know how to treat a 28yo baby lol). I started treatment with Dr. Adams 5-6 years ago. She’s cute and an amazing dentist (who knew that possible?). Her staff is extremely pleasant and make you fell warm.
I am not usually too nervous about medical procedures, but I cannot stand needles in my mouth. Since I had been dodging the dentist for a few years, I had a laundry list of dental work I needed done. Dr. Adams completed all my work in one sedation dentist visit. I really do not remember anything other than getting the IV inserted. I can’t thank the staff enough for making my experience so easy and comfortable.
