|Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, we will be temporarily limiting our practice to emergency treatment only per ADA guidelines.
It was a difficult decision to make, but we felt it was in the best interest of our patients, staff, and the community at large.
We will be open with limited hours for emergency patients only. All regular treatment and preventive care will be resumed in the coming weeks as it is safe to do so.
Thank you for your patience and ongoing support!
Your Columbia River Dental Team.
Oral (Conscious) Sedation
Oral sedation dentistry allows Dr. Ammon to create a safe and comfortable dental experience for patients who avoid the dentist out of fear.
With sedation, your dentist can work more effectively by helping you become as comfortable as possible using well established and proven methods. There are a variety of sedation medications that are taken orally or "sublingually" (under the tongue). All sedation medicines are administered at our offices, under the care of an assistant.
This type of dental care does require that you have a driver to bring you home from your appointment, as it takes several hours for the medication to completely wear off.
