Conscious sedation dentistry has drawn the attention of The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and it has even been featured on Good Morning America.


Campbellsville, Kentucky is one of the growing areas to have a trained sedation dentist available locally.  Dr. Abby Coyle and her team has completed a comprehensive and rigorous training program in sedation dentistry through the DOCS Education (DOCS).  Dr. Coyle is proud to offer the service and says, “We’re honored to have the opportunity to help the people in our community with this beneficial treatment. Patients no longer have to be afraid of the dentist.”


The process for patients is simple.  After a careful review of their medical history, Dr. Coyle will choose the appropriate medication(s) and level of sedation to best meet the patient’s needs.  Driven to their appointment by a companion, the patient will most likely take a single pill before arriving at the office on the day of their treatment.  More medication may be given depending on the type of procedures being performed and the duration of the appointment.  When treatment is complete and the patient is ready to go home, their companion drives them back and stays with them until they are fully recovered (about 4-10 hours).  Due to the amnesic properties of many of the medications, patients have little-to-no memory of their time in the dental chair by the next day.
