At Churchview Dental we have been successfully treating nervous patients for over 25 years. Dr Whelan completed his training in intravenous sedation in 1995  achieving SAAD certification, (Society for the Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry) , followed by a clinical attachment at Guys Hospital, London. Enda has been practicing intravenous sedation for the past 20 years. Enda regularly updates his training at Yorkshire sedation Training, most recently in 2024 at the Irish Dental Association conference, Enda and his team are trained for emergency first response.

Sedation dentistry is used to provide a relaxing and anxiety - free experience for certain piople receiving dental treatment, it enables individuals too afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental care they need whilst avoiding the common apprehension known as dental phobia. It can also help those who have a severe gag reflex and are unable to tolerate dental treatment.

For patients wishing to seek treatment under sedation an initial consultation appointment must be arranged. Dr Whelan and his team will assess you for suitability for treatment under sedation and discuss your treatment options. Following this appointment a sedation treatment session can be booked. A deposit is required to secure the appointment.
