Dr. Habekost will do everything in his power to relieve your stress and apprehension during any procedures, including the copious use of humor. Many patients find that treatment “was not at all painful” and actually “much easier than I expected”.There are some patients that request to be sedated for various reasons, and we will be happy to accommodate any such request. Please feel free to let us know if you would like this safe and effective way to alleviate your anxiety. Sedation is obtained via an extremely safe oral pill taken about an hour before your appointment. The only downside is that you MUST have a ride to and from your appointment, a small price to pay if you are apprehensive.Your total comfort is our goal!
