Painless Dental Care: Why it Won’t Hurt

At All Care Dentistry, we really do understand your fears and concerns about pain during treatment. Most of us are actually dental cowards who also HATE pain, and really HATE needles – If you are uncomfortable, you can be sure we are too. We promise we will do whatever it takes to make sure you are comfortable and pain-free during your treatment. We draw on a wide array of pain management resources to make sure your dental treatment is as comfortable as it can be.

No Pain Dentistry


Pain Management Approaches

Our dentist will discuss all dental options within our pain-free dentistry and help you decide which one is best for your care.

Computerized Novocain Delivery

We use Compudent as our Novocain delivery system. It’s a small tool that delivers a computer-measured anesthetic without the scary needle you’re used to. That means no more shots. In fact, most people don’t even know they are getting “numbed up.” The types of remarks we get from almost all of our patients include, “That’s It?” or “What was that?” “I didn’t feel a thing,” and our favorite, “That was great!”


In addition to Novocain, we can offer other anesthetics that will guarantee you will be pain-free anywhere from fifteen minutes to a few hours. This will ensure your comfort both during and after treatments.

Conscious Sedation For Patients

When appropriate, Nitrous Oxide( N2O2), sometimes called laughing gas, is used as a calming agent. It’s an odorless gas that is combined with oxygen to reduce anxiety and offers some pain control. It is applied with a comfortable mask over your nose that allows you to breathe normally. The mild effects of the gas end immediately when the flow of gas stops, and there are no aftereffects. When used in combination with other pain management approaches, even a person with severe dental anxiety will be conscious and comfortable during dental treatment.

Nurse Anesthetist-Deep Sedation/Analgesia

When required, we have a licensed nurse anesthetist on staff who can administer I.V. sedation, equivalent to operating room standards.

With all of these anti-pain and anti-anxiety resources at our disposal, we can guarantee that your dental treatment at All Care Dentistry will be as comfortable and painless as possible.

Would give this place 10 stars if I could. I honest never liked going to the dentist office. This place has changed my mind. Dr.Dave has a big heart and a wonderful team that made everything easy and quick! I would also like to mention a hygienist from there named Deana. Have never had a clean so quick and painless before her. She knows what she is doing!

Dr. Hertelendy and his staff are very knowledgeable, fun, and professional. I had a cleaning yesterday with one of his hygienists and showed concern of my gums being too low in a certain spot. He fit me in his schedule the next day for a gingivectomy. I have never had any dentistry done besides orthodontics so I was extremely nervous. The numbing process was painless. The procedure in general was quick. Dr. H was extremely detail orientated and was a perfectionist with how my gums were contoured. The results are amazing. I am very happy with how it turned out.

My wife has been going to Dr. Dave and his staff for over 15 years and they are patient and listen to your every need. If you have a low pain tolerance they work with you, if you need braces they have that to, anything you need to take care of your teeth they have, I’m 38 years old and I have been going to Dr.Dave since for a couple months now and now my family sees him as well.
