AGD Member

Now there's no need to be anxious or nervous about going to the dentist. Imagine snoozing comfortably while your dental work is performed quickly and effortlessly—no pain, all gain!

  • Afraid of the Dentist?
  • Bad experiences in the past?
  • Hate the sound of the drill?
  • Don't like getting shots?
  • Like to be put to sleep for your dental work and wake up finished and delighted?


Bergenfield Dental will do everything possible to make your dental visit a stress-free experience. We understand that it takes a lot of courage to finally make that first appointment. You can ask questions and get all the information you need about this wonderful treatment.

Now, you can safely receive anesthesia for your dental treatment, without going to a hospital, by a board certified anesthesiologist or with a sedation pill to make your visit stress-free and comfortable.

At Bergenfield Dental Associates, we understand that anxiety and even fear about visiting the dentist can be a real challenge for some people. These emotions can cause dental visits to be a stressful and unpleasant experience, or keep you from visiting the dentist altogether. We want to help remedy your anxiety and allow you to have the calm, comfortable dental experience that you deserve. Below are the ways we can help you do that.


Local Anesthesia

The first precaution we take to help you feel comfortable during a procedure is providing a local anesthetic. Dental anesthesia helps to reduce discomfort and lets you sit comfortably through the procedure. We want to help you feel as little discomfort as possible.


Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide sedation is the type of sedation most often used to calm nervous patients. It is often referred to as “laughing gas” because it relaxes you to the point of feeling happy and comfortable. This is a mild form of sedation that allows you to stay fully awake throughout the procedure.


IV Sedation

IV sedation is a much deeper form of sedation than nitrous oxide. IV sedation allows you to sleep throughout the procedure. When you wake up, your treatment will be over and you will not remember the sensations, smells, or sounds of the procedure. This knowledge is helpful to those with a more intense fear of dentistry. We also use this for very complicated or long dental procedures. IV sedation can be administered only by a specialist, so we bring in a licensed professional to help you achieve a perfect, comfortable sleep before your procedure.


Longer Appointments

Some dental offices aim to rush you through your appointment in order to see as many patients as possible in one day. They cram appointment time slots too close together, having no regard for your comfort and focusing only on how much money they will be making. At Bergenfield Dental Associates, we don’t do that. Here, we offer longer appointments in order to allow you the time you need to feel comfortable and relaxed. We understand that your time is as valuable as ours, and we do our best to do business as efficiently as possible – but if taking things slow will help you feel more at ease, that is what we will do.


Private Operatories

Sometimes feeling comfortable is as simple as feeling as though you have a sufficient amount of privacy. At our office, all of our operatories are completely private. We understand that the details of your dental care should be between you and your doctor – we can talk and work in private to get you the help you need. Privacy is key to feeling in control of your care – our job is to help you achieve the results you desire.


Televisions in Every Room

Do you simply need a distraction in order to feel comfortable? At our Bergenfield, NJ office, we have televisions in every room. This means that while you are having work done, you can watch television instead of focusing on the sights, smells, and sounds of the procedure. Even if you are not nervous about seeing the dentist, this is a great option for helping you feel more comfortable and at home during your visit.


Our Caring and Dedicated Staff

We believe the aspect of our practice that will help you feel most comfortable is our caring and dedicated team. All of our full-time employees have been with our office for more than 5 years. They are dedicated to their work, to our patients, and to the team. They are experts in their positions and use their extensive knowledge of dental assisting, dental hygiene, and customer service to make sure you get the dental care you deserve. If you have any questions or problems during your visit, our staff will help you solve them and provide you with whatever you need to feel comfortable. You are in good hands when you visit Bergenfield Dental Associates.

Let us help you get the dental care you need in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. Call our office for an appointment today for services with sedation dentistry at 201-384-0100 or use our online form to send us a message.
