Our Dental Sedation Options
Drs. Parviz Roshanzamir and Milton Reskovich are certified to administer a single drug relaxant intravenously to healthy patients in need of relaxation to help achieve their dental goals. IV sedation at Wall Centre Dental in Vancouver is available for any dental treatment or hygiene appointment. We follow specific protocols to ensure a safe, pain-free appointment.
