I have always been terrified of going to the dentist and went years (> 15) between visits. After much prodding from family I made my first appt. It was terrific, I have no memories of the event and am thankful for that. I have continued to go to Dr. Hartley since then and each time my fears have been lessened. All the staff works to ensure that your experience is totally comfortable for you and you are not made to feel silly or ashamed for your fears, which are very real for you! I would highly recommend Woodcreek Dental to anyone.

Feel Relaxed with Our IV Dental Sedation Dentistry in Calgary
Is fear keeping you away from the dentist chair? If such is the case, we understand and are here to help. At Woodcreek Dental Care, your IV sedation dentist in Calgary, Dr. Hartley and his experienced staff are trained in oral and IV sedation procedures and know how to make your time here as comfortable as possible.
A Gentle Approach
Oral sedation is one of the available methods of conscious sedation dentistry offered by Woodcreek Dental Care. The medication will also help to reduce patient awareness of the sights or scents of the dental office to avoid recall of any trauma. The other advantages of oral sedation are:
No needles involved
High patient acceptance
IV sedation, also called intravenous sedation, allows for the patient to be sedated by inserting an IV into the blood stream. This effective alternative to traditional pain management allows patients to comfortably sleep through a difficult procedure, and has several other advantages which include:
Tailored dosage and sedation level
Diminished gag reflex
Both oral and IV sedation are used for many medical procedures. These sedation techniques are extremely safe, as well as pleasant for our patients. Dr. Hartley is licensed by the Alberta Dental Association to be a Calgary sedation dentist. Additionally, he and his staff are equipped with top-of-the-line monitoring technology that will put your mind at ease.
A Quick and Comfortable Procedure
At Woodcreek Dental Care, your comfort is our top priority. Our state-of-the-art sedation equipment allows us to quickly adjust dosages to ensure you are as safe and comfortable as possible. This technique gives us the ability to perform complex procedures more easily in a minimal amount of time, and with no recollection of the procedure by you.
A Fast Recovery
Recovery is different for each person, but Dr. Hartley and his staff are here to answer any questions you have related to your surgery or and post-surgical recovery.
On the day of your appointment, we require you have someone with you to receive post-operative instructions as well as to take you home. Once your procedure is done, our caring staff will be at your side until you are ready to be discharged. Depending on the procedure and the patient, we encourage our patients spend at least one day at home resting. If you have questions or concerns once you are home, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Once again I was treated with gentleness and kindness. My dental work was done under sedation. Other than the obvious results afterward, I'm not even sure I was there.
If you are looking for a dentist but are afraid, I strongly recommend Woodcreek Dental. They do a great job with sedation.
As a patient with an overwhelming phobia for all things dental, I am thrilled to have found such an understanding and supportive group of professionals at Woodcreek. Their IV sedation has enabled me to begin much-needed treatment, and I’m actually looking forward to having more work done! Thank you so much!!
I went with the IV sedation and was extremely happy with the work that was provided; I am writing this the day after my procedure – which was extensive. I have no pain and I can tell that great care was taken even though I was completely sedated during the procedure.
