Meet Dr. Stephen Leavens and his family
Dr. Stephen Leavens is one of a limited number of dental practices in the Pasco area that offer conscious sedation and can complete most or all of your dentistry, including dental implants, while you are sedated.
Oral sedation dentistry is now the most common technique used in the United States to quell patient fears. For the fearful, anxious, or very young patient, sedation makes use of a prescription medication that induces a drowsy, relaxed feeling so you can get your complex or longer procedures done while in a relaxed state. We administer this medication orally (no needles!)
Due to the relaxing effects of the medication, patients must have a friend or family member bring them to the dental office and return them home.
Enjoy visiting the dentist again! Treatments seem to take only minutes to complete.
Longer single appointments and decreased need for costly anesthesia saves you money.
Many previously time-consuming procedures can now be completed in one appointment.
We offer CareCredit financing to help our patients get the dental care they need.
