SEDATION DENTISTRY

Changing your view of dentistry in Ballard, WA.

ARE YOU FEELING NERVOUS?

Find real relief from dental anxiety with our sedation options in our spa-like office.

If going to the dentist makes you anxious or scared, you are not alone. Dental fears are very common and, here at Ballard Dental Arts, we genuinely enjoy helping individuals overcome their dental anxiety and truly enjoy their visits.

Rest assured, we will not judge the condition of your teeth and gums. We’re here to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted!

The first thing we will do is to listen and ask:

Together we will decide what treatment is needed and how we can best help you through your dental visits.

 

YOUR SEDATION OPTIONS

Making your dental appointment painless and comfortable.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is provided through a nose hood and is administered throughout the entire procedure. Nitrous oxide elevates the general mood and can evoke an overall sense of well-being. Most importantly, it relieves anxiety and reduces pain during the procedure. You are able to drive yourself to and from each appointment when nitrous oxide is used.

 

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral medication is provided prior to treatment, and then nitrous oxide is added to induce a more profound state of sedation. You are still “awake,” but your senses are dulled. This means that most patients cannot remember the pain, smells, or noises associated with the dental procedure. You will need a driver to and from the appointment when oral medication is used.

IV Sedation

Patients who have previously experienced IV sedation report feeling like they slept through the entire procedure. A treatment taking several hours will feel like minutes when you are sedated. This type of sedation is typically used for longer procedures or more complicated oral surgeries, but can also be used for simple fillings or even cleanings. You will need a driver to and from the appointment with IV sedation.

 
Good friendly dentist and assistants

My experience here has been great. When I go for regular cleaning, Jenni does a great and thorough job with cleaning my teeth. I have sensitivity in some areas of my teeth but she always does her best to make it as pain-free as possible. She is professional and friendly and I always leave with my teeth feeling great!

I spend summers in Seattle and don't have a regular dentist here. Had a dental emergency and they got me in, treated me with compassion and kindness, did a superb job. Office is super clean, staff super competent and so nice. Much appreciated!

Dr. Rowe and her team (entire office) did an amazing job fixing my crown. Going to the dentist isn't the most enjoyable experience but they did their best to make it one. I highly recommend her and her team to take care of you.

I loved the experience and how kind the staff are. One of the staff Tinker was so nice when filling my cavity and shaping the filling to look like a tooth again. Out of the other dentistries I've been to this is the best in my opinion out of all of them.

I was recommended to Ballard Dental Arts by a friend when I had just moved back to the area about a year ago and I'm so happy to have found them. Not only is the office convenient to me & their office has early hours, the whole staff is so friendly, the office is super clean (their COVID precautions are great - you wait in the car and text to check in, then they call you), their billing is super straightforward and simple, and they are very accommodating in scheduling. I've seen Dr. Rowe and she's excellent, Phuong was my Hygienist this AM and was so helpful, so patient and kind. I have terrible anxiety about going to the dentist and Ballard Dental Arts makes me feel so comfortable. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a dentist.

Being somewhat new to the area, I was putting off finding a new dentist until the last possible second. Ballard Dental Arts was a recommendation from a coworker, and I'm very thankful to have found them! To start, the office is beautiful, very clean and comfortable. Making my first appointment over the phone was quick, easy, and Kendra was very helpful in answering my questions. My availability for follow up appointments was tight, but the front desk team was incredible in their efforts to get me in on a short time frame. Thank you! The doctors and hygienists are wonderful and kind people. Thank you to Jenni for making my visit as comfortable as possible. Also shoutout to Dr. Eggert, Tinker, Tanisha, & a few others who were all very friendly and professional. Would recommend this place to anyone!

I had my first visit this week for a regular check-up and cleaning. I was very impressed! Clients wait outside/in their car until the staff call for you so there isn't a crowd in the waiting area. The office was immaculate. The bathroom was spacious enough for someone using a wheelchair. Staff were knowledgeable and courteous. They answered all my questions. Shout out to Orie, my dental assistant, Phoung, my hygienist, and my dentist, Dr. Rowe. Thank you for the excellent care!

I started going to Ballard Dental Arts based on a friend's referral, and I'm so glad I did. It is clean, bright and airy, the front desk staff are kind and extremely helpful, and I love my hygienist. Even after I moved out of Ballard I kept going because of how great they are. Can't say enough good things.

I just got my teeth cleaned and polished and I had probably the best dental experience of my life. Last time 6 months ago I had Jenni work on my teeth and she is the first person to ever get me motivated to floss and buy and use a night guard. It clearly paid off because I had great results to show for my work this appointment. Jenni is extremely educational and I felt cared about here as opposed talked down to like I have other places. I have had nothing but amazing experiences since coming here and will continue to receive my dental work from people I trust. Thanks guys!!

I love this place, it had been a while sense I had been to the dentist so I was a bit hesitant to go but once I got there they made me feel right at home. I didn't feel judged and was treated with the up most respect. I would highly recommend them, and staff are all very friendly.

It is truly comforting to know you have a professional, personal dentist who actually cares about your health. People without a dentist can have a lot of problems, but with Ballard Dental Arts all your fears are laid to rest. My first procedure this week involved #31, a fractured tooth that would have only gotten worse had I ignored it. Dr. Eggert, Melissa, and the other assistants, are truly helpful and friendly. Very important to my dental care is anesthesia, and I chose Ballard Dental Arts because they use Nitrous, which makes the procedures for me to go a lot smoother. I am not at all concerned about over-hyped dangers of N20, so that part of my dental care is crucial to me.Billing is also very gracious, as they know a full crown can cost over $1,000 which is necessary to pay, or else the tooth gets infected, which can lead to an abscess or much worse. They allow self-pay patients like me, who knows how practically worthless are the dental plans in this state, 90 days same as cash. If not for that, I would have had to postpone my care and put my health at risk. Thank you, Ballard Dental Arts, for truly caring. No, they did not pay me or egg me on to write this review, it's just something that I do anyway for the truly deserving businesses out there. Totally recommended.Best way to get here and avoid the very heavy Ballard traffic is to go over to 17th Ave. NW, and then turn eastbound onto NW 58th street to the end of the block, and they have a parking lot on the north side behind the building, which is actually the main entrance.

I honestly look forward to my twice yearly dental appointments. I have been visiting Ballard Dental Arts for a few years and have had a consistently positive experience, even when that experience involved cavities and fillings.Dr. Tobler instantly puts you at ease. He is skilled, trustworthy, and patient to explain each step and option. I've definitely had dentists in the past who left me in the dark while they worked on my teeth, but Dr. Tobler goes out of his way to answer every question, sometimes before you even think to ask.The cherry on the cake is the amazing hygienist Jenni. Not only does she take excellent care of your teeth, but check-ups with her are like visiting with a friend you haven't seen in 6 months. She is pure gold. You may forget you're having your teeth cleaned.

I can’t recommend this practice enough!

Lovely facility with great people. I've been going to Ginny (Virginia) for years and she is always warm, conscientious, and professional. I love going to her for my cleanings.I had more extensive work done today by Melissa and Dr. Eggert and they were frequently checking to see that I was comfortable as well as informed about what they were doing each step of the way. They each have a gentle touch and did beautiful work.

I came in 2 weeks ago and saw Dr. Eggert for help with my teeth. I had lost a temporary tooth for 2 teeth and needed something for it. He explained that the roots and 1 front tooth needed to be pulled. He went ahead with it and he and his assistant Melaine were so kind and understanding with me. I was not expecting to have teeth pulled but they were wonderful. The front office too was very kind also. They said that they would make things right with me meaning that I would leave with something to replace my pulled teeth. I am so happy that I found this clinic and would recommend them to everyone who needed a dentist. Thank you for everything you have done for me and in the future too. Cindy Brighton

Any issue I’ve encountered with my teeth has been promptly and professionally addressed, and I appreciate that they consult me on my input regarding a procedure. The staff is friendly and professional and there’s a wonderful comradary among them - they truly operate as a team. I can’t recommend Ballard Dental Arts (and Jenny and Dr. Tobler) highly enough!

I've had problems with my teeth for years and have always been embarrassed to smile. I went to a couple of dentists to get an estimate for the work I needed and Ballard Dental Arts was very reasonable (one place quoted me twice what BDA did). They made me feel super comfortable, did a great job of explaining options and really did an amazing job. I can't say enough about how happy I am with the job Dr. Kiefer and the staff did. It's really the best experience I've ever had with a dentist.

Ill start by saying I found this dental group from google reviews and my insurance website when moving to the area recently-Top notch experience all around. The admin and reception team is on point and easy to coordinate and communicate with. They are aware of their patient's notes and needs when made clear to them. The hygienists are super friendly and welcoming, always making sure you are informed and have questions answered, and really make sure you are comfortable and at ease. Great at communicating with the patient before and after doctor examination.I have worked with Dr. Tobler and he is just so down to earth and kind. Gave me good notes and information about my teeth without being preachy or judgmental. When I had time restraints because of insurance passing they were beyond accommodating to make sure I got the services I needed.

The work on my teeth has been top notch; I have never had a problem or had to return to have work fixed. I like the fact that Dr Wiley has had the same staff for a long time- the sign of a good team. Tinker and Lisa always treat me like a valued customer.

I had 2 cavities treated yesterday by Dr. Wiley and his technician Karen Tinker. This professional combo of Dr. Wiley and Tinker is the best! Both of them performed the procedure with Dr. W. doing the drilling and Karen then placing the fillings. They both discussed the final stage and I was on my way. The latest technologies are used and the mood is set as calm, friendly, and pleasant from the first moment I arrived through the entire procedure.I cannot say enough great things about Ballard Dental Arts. My doctor Jack, Karen at his side, and Lisa at the front office. Virginia (Ginny) is and has been my dental hygienist for years under Dr. Wiley. Love her!!! - Thank you folks!KP Snyder

I really like Dr. Tobler and the staff at Ballard Dental Arts. They do great work and are always friendly and flexible with scheduling. I’ve been a patient for about a year now and have been happy with my cleanings, and about as satisfied as I could be with a recent root canal and another extraction. A lot less pain than when I had a similar root canal done by a fancy specialist in LA. Dr. Tobler is very attentive and transparent, which helps if you’re anxious like me when it comes to anything dental. He’s also very efficient and you can tell his work is top notch. Highly recommend.

Have been visiting this clinic since the previous owner. The remodel is a nice touch. Really the main reason that I keep coming back is for my hygienist Jenny. I've spent alot of time in the dentist chair getting my mouth repaired from my heads seemingly magnetic attraction to concrete. Definitely have built up enough hesitation to not want to go to the dentist but Jenny has made it really easy for me..to the point where I really look forward to my visits. Last time I was in Siri was covering for Jenny which definitely had me worried but guess what, Siri was just as amazing! Couldn't believe it. Really great folks here, highly recommend checking them out.
