Sedation Dentistry for Nervous Patients

Relaxed patientMany people are afraid of going to the dentist, or had a traumatic dental experience in the past. At 5 Mile Smiles, there is no need to fear. Dr. Keefe’s gentle chairside manner and sense of humor will put you at ease. If that isn’t enough, we also offer oral sedation options for mild to severe anxiety!

Schedule Your Appointment

New Patient?

At 5 Mile Smiles, we don’t want our patients to go without the treatment they need because they dread scheduling an appointment. Our effective sedation dentistry options are here to ensure your dental visit is one that you don’t have to stress about. We have options available that can work well for all of our patients who experience dental anxiety.

Oral Sedation

If you suffer from dental anxiety, Dr. Keefe may recommend oral sedation. These anti-anxiety pills tone down activity in the parts of your brain that cause you to feel anxious or afraid. We offer both a light and a heavy sedation option, depending on your needs.

Remember, if you take oral sedation, you cannot drive before or after your appointment. Bring a friend or family member with you to make sure you arrive and get back home safely following your appointment.

5 Mile Smiles is the dentist near you that can help keep your smile beautiful – even if it takes a little extra help from our well tolerated sedation techniques!


I have had multiple visits to 5 Mile Smiles and they have always been great!!! I highly recommend seeing this office for ALL your dental needs!


Great service, easy to get an appointment, staff was very informative on what work was being done and if I had pain during the procedure. They seem to have very new equipment which makes procedures faster and more effective than other offices in town.


I JUST LOVE THESE GUYS !!! I was never an ideal patient, so frightened of a dentist until I found 5 Mile Smiles. The extraordinary quality of their work matches the entire teams' compassion & care. Outstanding!


The staff was very kind and welcoming and my appointment was on time.


Dr. Keefe and his team were awesome, and I was in and out of there much quicker than I’d anticipated.


Best dentist I have been to!!! The staff is awesome and got me in while I was on vacation to fix a crown. I would highly recommend.
