If Dentistry Has Been Difficult For You, The Dread Is Gone!

Really you can, I know. I know. It can be hard for you especially if you have had a nightmare of an experience. But no longer because???
Stone Age Dentistry Is a Thing of The Past
Dentistry of just 10-20 years ago was absolutely Stone Age compared to dentistry today in our office. I recognize what has stopped so many from having a beautiful smile that they are proud of and achieving real dental health for life are based on these previous bad experiences and fears of going to the dentist.
And, we have done something about it. My Method uses newly developed techniques and technology to make your visit easier, faster and more comfortable.
"I basically couldn't smile and was embarrassed by the way my teeth were. I was extremely scared to have any of my treatment. Dr. Menard's recommendation was to use sedation dentistry to make me relaxed. I was very comfortable during all of my treatment. Now, thanks to my implants and cosmetic teeth, I'm smiling and getting my social confidence back. My dating life has improved too!"

"Based on previous experiences at other dental offices over the years, I found that even minor surgery was always very painful afterwards. My surgery was pretty serious that Dr. Menard atelierdusourire.com had to perform but I was AMAZED at how comfortable I was after my surgery. I was virtually pain-free, and I don't remember a thing. Unbelievable!"

You'll be offered a blanket to keep you warm. Then, we'll give as brief or detailed explanation as you would like: about what we find, what we do and why. This full explanation helps you know what to expect.
For those that have had those experiences that lead to racing hearts and white knuckled visits, Dr. Menard is one of just a handful of doctors certified to provide a medical level of sedation to comfortably get your through your appointments--in most cases with no memory of your visit. It's one more ingredient in my Method designed to get anyone (we mean anyone) comfortably through even the most complex dental treatment.
"My treatment seemed simple to me even though I know it was complex. I was one of those patients that were fearful beyond belief but Dr. Menard' sedation techniques took care of all of that. I went back to work very quickly and without any pain. Things turned out the way I expected including the way Dr. Menard worked with my personal time frame and without any disruption to my family life. I would recommend Dr. Menard's implant care to anyone considering it. Going into it with a positive attitude really helps as well."
