Sedation Dentistry

Lake Oswego Dentist Serving Portland, & Nearby West Linn, OR

Dr. Wendling and her team believe that dentistry should be as pleasant an experience as possible for every patient.

For this reason, our offices are designed with your comfort in mind. From our luxuriously appointed, spa-like environment, to our towncar service, every aspect of our practice is focused on making your dental visits comfortable, pleasant, and enjoyable.

We understand, however, that many people experience anxiety during dental visits, and associate dentistry with pain. That's why we offer a full range of both pain-killing and anxiety-reducing options that can help even the most sensitive patients relax and enjoy their visits.

Many people postpone or even avoid dentists entirely because of painful past experiences. But dentistry doesn't have to hurt. We offer a range of state-of-the-art procedures and anesthetic options that can alleviate or completely eliminate any pain.

The simplest of our options is local anesthetic. We will first use a soft swab to numb the gum tissue, so that you will not feel any injection. The local anesthetic will numb the deeper tissues being worked on, making even difficult procedures painless.


We offer a range of sedatives that allow you to fully relax both before and during your procedure. For many people, the mere fact of being in a dentist's office can induce stress and anxiety. Dr. Wendling has extra understanding of this, as she felt the same way originally. She takes particular care of her anxious patients. Besides offering effective sedatives, we offer a luxurious, spa-like atmosphere that is nothing like the dental offices many have come to fear. You can relax in a gentle massaging treatment chair and enjoy a view of the scenic Willamette river. Lavender scented warm towels and state of the art audio and video systems, as well as other features too numerous to list make our offices feel safe and relaxing.
