Whether it’s spiders, heights, or public speaking, research says fear is universal. At Capital Smiles, we know there’s another phobia that affects people of all ages — and it’s visiting the dentist. When dental anxiety prevents you from receiving the regular preventive attention that keeps smiles healthy, it’s a problem. That’s why Dr. Shiloh Lieberman and Dr. Erin Page are pleased to offer three sedation dentistry options in the Capital District: nitrous oxide, oral conscious, and IV sedation.
