Dental Fear – Dental Anxiety – Dental Phobia

dr-john-chaoDr. Chao has been known over the years to adapt proven, innovative techniques for achieving anxiety relief and profound anesthesia into his treatment of hypersensitive patients. He has been teaching these same techniques at the USC School of Dentistry for more than ten years. Additionally Dr. Chao is one of a select few general practitioners to have received certification from the state to administer IV conscious sedation, along with oral sedation with medication and nitrous oxide. Literally thousands of patients over the years have experienced and marveled at the “painlessness” of his techniques, regardless of whether the procedures involve root canal treatment , crowns, veneers, extractions, implant surgery, gum grafting, laser treatment, mini-implant placement, drill-less fillings or any other dental procedures. Dr. Chao uses the operating microscope to facilitate other minimally invasive techniques, such as air-abrasion for fillings, laser techniques in place of surgery and surgical placement of traditional and mini-implants.
