There is a growing population in the patient base that can be classified as "medically complex". Loosely defined, medically complex simply means patients who have multiple medical issues that require drugs. For example, a patient who takes blood pressure medication, anti-anxiety medication and asthma medication is medically complex. There are several issues occurring in the body, with several treatment drugs to potentially interact.
Dr. Hopkins is a member of DOCS (Doctors of Oral Conscious Sedation), an organization that has devoted much time and study to the needs of the medically complex. Once upon a time, the medically complex were unable to be orally sedated to counter act the effects of dental phobia.
Thanks to new technology, the medically complex are now able to enjoy the same comfort of sedation as other patients, right here in our office! No IVs!
If you think you are part of the medically complex population and have put off your dental work, don't delay any longer! Call us today for a FREE sedation consultion. That's 727.733.1175 or www.allaboutsmiles.org.
Happy Smiles, and be safe from Gustav!
