Pediatric Sedation Dentistry ~ For Children, Kids

Ask us about our sedation dentistry special for new patients in February. Please note that some restrictions apply, and that we only offer laughing gas for children, not our oral sedation or IV sedation. Call (303) 323-8149 for more information.

Some kids have a challenging time at the dentist, whether it’s because they’re afraid, they’ve had a bad experience in the past, or they have difficulty tolerating certain types of dental procedures and treatments.

At our dental office (which is in Lone Tree, near Park Meadows Mall), we love to see children! Both Dr. O’Leary and Dr. Peppler are experienced sedation dentists who enjoy providing a positive experience for children.

As a pediatric sedation dentistry option, we offer laughing gas, which is also known as nitrous oxide.

Laughing gas is the lowest level of sedation, and for most children, it’s enough to help. We administer the laughing gas through a nose piece, and it helps relax kids who might otherwise struggle to visit the dentist. Once the dental treatment or procedure is over, we shut off the laughing gas and administer oxygen for a few minutes, to help overcome any lingering effects.

Laughing gas has been used in dentistry since the mid-1800s, and it’s a great sedation option for kids…and adults too!

We are here to answer any questions about pediatric sedation dentistry by phone, or if you would like to bring your child in for a free consultation, please contact us (303) 323-8149, or e-mail

In addition, our office is handicap accessible.  If you have a child who has disabilities, sedation dentistry can often help them tolerate a necessary procedure offering peace of mind for the whole family.

Please make note: We accept most types of dental insurance plans and are in network providers for: Delta Dental, Assurant, United Concordia, and Aetna. We also have no-interest financing available through CareCredit.
