Relieving Dental Anxiety

We understand that thoughts of visiting the dentist can be scary. However, our team works hard to debunk those fears. We are dedicated to providing comfortable care, a friendly atmosphere, and a welcoming, caring staff to each and every one of our patients. We cater to you throughout the appointment to make sure you are comfortable and relaxed. Below you can learn about how exactly we maintain our comfortable office and make you feel at home.

Sedation Options

If you are nervous or even fearful of a dental procedure, we can help make sure you are comfortable and relaxed throughout the whole process. To do this, we offer two levels of dental sedation right here in our office. Depending on your specific situation, we can help you feel relaxed by offering nitrous oxide gas sedation or oral conscious sedation medication (Valium).

Nitrous oxide is used to take the edge off your nerves. Also known as laughing gas, nitrous can help you feel relaxed. This type of sedation wears off quickly but can be administered easily via a face mask. If you need just a little bit of help relaxing during a procedure, this sedation option may be for you.

We also offer oral conscious sedation medication. This medication, typically Valium, is used to render the patient groggy and very, very relaxed. Although you are completely conscious throughout the procedure, you may feel sleepy and will certainly be comfortable. This type of sedation wears off more slowly and is a little bit harder to adjust on the spot. You will need a ride to and from the office if you elect to use this type of sedation. If you are fearful and need a bit more help relaxing during a procedure, our oral sedation can help.

Bright and Welcoming Office Atmosphere

In addition to our dental sedation options, we also focus on maintaining a comfortable, relaxing office atmosphere for our patients. We want you to feel welcome and at home here. Our great staff and comfort options will help you feel at ease. We offer television in the waiting room; complimentary refreshments such as soda, water, coffee, pastries, and cookies; free Wi-Fi; pillows and blankets for use during your appointment; and the option of longer appointment slots to allow us to treat you at your own pace.

Caring and Friendly Staff

Our staff is small, but we are dedicated to helping our patients have an excellent experience here in our office. Our intimate size allows us one-on-one time with each our of patients and the opportunity to help you in every way we can. We also offer educational videos and conferences with Dr. Moin in order to ensure that you understand each procedure entirely before beginning.

Dr. Moin and his team are absolutely wonderful. Their office is modern and high tech. Staff is very knowledgable, helpful and friendly. i have had quite a lot of work done at Dr. Moin’s office. I recommend Dr. Moin and hope you have a similar experience.

Dr. Moin is a wonderful dentist. He is professional and does excellent work. Everyone in the office is friendly and helpful – so much so that my 6yr old asked if we could go back. We went to him on a family recommendation and I would highly recommend him to family and friends.

-Suzie B, Acton, CA

My family has been going to Dr. Moin since 1996 and since then, he has been and still continues to be a great dentist. He does an excellent job, whether it’d be extracting a wisdom tooth or simply filling a cavity. You should definitely have Dr. Moin as a dentist; you’re in good hands.

Finally, I found a dentist that is compassionate about what he does. His entire staff is courteous, professional, and caring. I’ve been to many dentist through recommendation of friends and although it wasn’t a bad experience, I haven’t experienced service to this degree. I am a professional in the health care field, and because I work nights and long hours, my bad habits include coffee and drinking soda to stay awake. As a results, I destroyed the enamel on my teeth and soon was embarrassed to smile. I came to Dr. Moin through a referral and was immediately greeted by a friendly, warm staff. I sat in the room with Dr. Moin and explained my concerns and needs. He took the time to listen then explain the procedure and informed me of his 20 plus years experience in cosmetic dentistry. I had an inner warmth and security that somehow validated was he was saying, so proceeded with getting Veneers. Let me tell you, choosing Dr. Moin was the best decision I made. The quality is superb and the price could not be beaten. Colleagues who also have Veneers were shocked about the difference in what they paid compared to what I did and some can’t even tell that I have Veneers. I must say, I highly recommend him to everyone!!! Thank you Dr. Moin and Staff.

Going to a dentist is not always the first thing in your to do list. However, Dr. Iraj Moin makes going to a dentist a pleasant experience. There is never a wait. The office staff are always friendly and they remember you. Dr. Iraj himself has a great personality and very knowledge on his field and the procedures he performs. My overall experience is excellent and my entire family has him as a dentist and we are pleased with him.

Hiding my smile became a habit. Now I receive compliments about my smile and teeth. I am very happy with Dr. Moin and his kind and caring staff.
