Sedation Dentistry

“I am the world’s biggest baby when it comes to going to the dentist. Because of Dr. Peabody and his sedation procedure, I was able to get through major dental work. I will be a patient for life. Many thanks to Dr. Peabody and his staff.”  –Cindy

  • Problems getting numb
  • Numerous dental needs
