Helping you to relax, you do not
have to be afraid anymore!
We are pleased to announce that
our office is certified to make oral sedation available to our patients.
Imagine not being afraid to go to your Mahwah dentist. Imagine being able to accomplish
all your dental care in as little as one appointment. That is what Sedation
Dentistry can do for you. You'll be able to smile with confidence and
chew your food without pain. If you've been putting off years of dental
work, Sedation Dentistry can change your life.
In one study, 90% of the patients
who experienced fearfulness about dentistry felt more comfortable when
oral sedation was used to relax them. How will you feel? Most patients
feel that they have slept through the appointment. The protocols have
been used safely for over 30 years with millions of dental procedures:
cleanings, fillings, root canals, crowns, veneers, bridges and implants.
No dental work is done until you are completely relaxed and the medication
has started to sedate you. You don't even remember the details of the
treatment the next day! To answer all your concerns and questions we will
do a complimentary consultation with absolutely no dental treatment at
your first visit. Then, if you are a candidate for sedation dentistry,
we will schedule an appointment to do the exam, X-rays and treatment plan
prior to your Sedation Dental visit. This way you can plan how you want
to reach your goal, without the anxiety of getting the treatment done
in the same day.
In addition, the use of Nitrous
oxide (laughing gas) will enhance the relaxation during the appointment,
making the time in the dental chair a pleasant and comfortable experience.
The only thing standing between you and getting the dental care you want
is a couple of tablets of medication. It couldn't be simpler.
Once comfortable with getting dental treatment done, you can do less dental
treatment under sedation, and more treatment only with laughing gas or
no medication at all. Imagine going to your Mahwah dentist for only preventative
hygiene appointments to maintain your oral health throughout your life,
painless and relaxed!

"I have not been to the dentist in almost
6 years because of my fear and bad experience with a previous dentist.
A friend recommended Advance Dental Care. I had broken a tooth and now
had no choice but to make an appointment. Almost six months later I
am on my way to a much healthier mouth. From the minute I walked through
the door the care was exceptional. I had a tooth extracted under sedation.
I woke up, went home and did not remember anything, and I had absolutely
no pain. The doctors and staff are outstanding and I highly recommend
Advance Dental Care."

Dear Dr. Maz,
I am writing to thank you for
giving me the best dental experience I've had to date. As you were so
keenly aware, I was one of those patients absolutely terrified of visiting
the dentist. I did not even want to have someone looking in my mouth
much less touching anything in there! Because of that fear I neglected
to take care of my mouth and needed extensive work done to correct that
From my first visit both you
and Dr. Giordano went out of your way to make me feel as comfortable
as possible. When you spoke to me about the work that needed to be done
and offered the suggestion of sedation, I was thrilled the option was
open to me.
The night before my appointment
you called to calm my fears and make sure I took the first part of my
medication. It made me feel like I was in the most capable hands. On
the day of my appointment, Dr. Giordano was wonderful. The office was
quiet and I was asked to pick a movie to view and given the sedation
medication. The movie wasn't on more than 15 minutes before I went to
sleep. I felt nothing during the procedure and was able to go home and
sleep the rest of the medication off. The day after my appointment,
I felt fine-no medication hangover, no pain and no swelling. I have
to tell you I was thoroughly amazed and delighted.
Thank you so much for the care,
attentiveness, professional work and follow up you gave me. I would
(and have!) recommended your office to anyone who has a fear of the
dentist or just needs a referral to a new dentist that seems to care
about the patient and not just the fee.
You're fabulous-keep up the good

Dear Dr. Maz
I just wanted to tell you about the wonderful experience I had with Advance
I was one of the biggest cowards about going to the dentist and some how
I mustered up the courage to call your office for an appointment. Little
did I ever think that I would be given an appointment that same day? That
alone showed me how you understood what it took for me to make that initial
When I arrived butterflies and all I was taken immediately into your office
and not made to sit there wondering what kind of torture you had in store
for me. The dental technician introduced me to your staff and gave me
a tour of your office. So far so good I thought. Then I was seated in
the chair of doom. Not being to the dentist in so many years I was embarrassed
and afraid about what I was going to find out and what you would think
of me. Not only was your dental technician caring and compassionate she
was also very understanding and sympathetic to my fears.
After my evaluation excuse me my painless evaluation Dr. Maz took me into
the consultation room and gave me the bad news. Again you were compassionate
and understanding and sympathetic to my fears. We discussed what was found
during my evaluation and the plan of treatment. And that fact that it
could be done in one appointment under sedation was just amazing to me.
All that work in one appointment, this just keeps getting better. You
even went as far as getting approvals from my insurance so when I left
your office I knew financially how this would affect me.
My appointment for the sedation dentistry was made for the following week.
Both Dr Maz and Dr. G made yourselves available to call, about any fears
or questions I had prior to my appointment again just so caring and understanding.
Today is the big day and I'm just not as anxious as I thought I would
be. You may think it was the Valium the night before. I think it was because
I trusted you and Dr G. you understood my fears. I picked out a movie
and the next thing I remember is waking up and it was done. I couldn't
I thought it was 1 hour later and it was yes six hours. Dr. G a special
thank you for such a great job. I left your office and slept for the rest
of the day and awoke the next morning with hardly any discomfort. For
the first time in years I was able to look at my mouth. Not only did my
teeth look so much better but also my mouth felt so much healthier. All
in one day.
Going to the dentist was one of my biggest fears and thanks to you, Dr.
G. and your staff that fear no longer exists. You have had a big impact
on my life and I will be forever be grateful to all of you.
With sincere gratitude,
I had the sedation dentistry done on June 10th and
am pleased to say that it went extremely well, even better than I thought
it was going to go. Everyone at Advance Dental Care was very supportive
and understanding to my fears but now I am more comfortable coming to
see the dentist than I ever thought I would be. This office truly has
a caring staff!!
