Sedation Dentistry Fees (Video)

Dental practice marketing with internet videoSedation dentistry can allow patients to overcome dental anxiety and fear.

Jim Du Molin spent years working on dental marketing and sedation dentistry, and co-founded the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation.

He knows the issues from both sides –  dentists and patients.  Not every dentist is a sedation dentist – and for good reason.

The Wealthy Dentist conducted a survey asking dentists if they offer sedation dentistry.

Jim Du Molin and Julie Frey report on typical dentist fees for various kinds of dental sedation:

Three out of four dentists in this survey say they provide sedation dentistry.

What’s the typical cost of oral conscious sedation?

Conscious sedation dentistry costs an average of about $300. In this survey, the lowest cost was $70, and the highest charge was $680.

How about IV sedation dentistry?

You’re looking at an average cost of about $450, ranging from a low of $225 up to a high of $1,200.

What about pediatric sedation?

The average charge was about $300.

And the cost of  nitrous oxide?

Laughing gas averaged $80 in this survey.

“I am a dentist anesthesiologist. I am perfectly fine with my client doctors doing oral sedation with proper training. I think it is important that they have someone like me to check with if they have a question or concern,” said a dentist anesthesiologist.

“Having well-trained providers of sedation is a key to our success as a profession. I offer pediatric sedation for $225,” said a pediatric dentist.
