A Clean Mouth is a Happy Mouth
Many of our clients — whether from fear of the dentist or physical limitations — have gone far too long without regular dental care.
At the Center for Dental Rehabilitation, we understand that while regular checkups and professional cleanings may be routine, they can still be a major source of stress and anxiety to patients who suffer from dental phobia. During your consultation, before anyone touches your mouth, we are happy to discuss the various types of sedation dentistry that we offer. Even mild sedation can help you feel more comfortable during your visit.
The best way to avoid lengthy dental procedures is, of course, regular cleanings and dental checkups, but these aren’t always possible for every segment of the population. If you or a loved one have gone longer than you should between dental visits, please don’t feel self-conscious, embarrassed, or ashamed. We understand. We specialize in difficult cases. When you come for your initial consultation, or as a new patient for a cleaning, we’ll make the process as stress-free as possible.
First, we’ll look in your mouth (and when we say look, that’s what we mean — no one will place a tool in your mouth without consent). Next, if your health allows and if you’re amenable, we will take radiographs to check for infection and decay. If any dental problems are discovered, we will work together to develop a comprehensive dental plan that will clear infection, restore your health, and enhance your smile in as few visits as possible.
Elimination and Prevention of Pain
Dental pain can lead to isolation, malnutrition, and often indicates serious infection. If left untreated, the infection can spread to other organs.
Many of our clients are brought to us by their caretakers. Dental pain disproportionately affects the elderly, the medically compromised, and those with developmental disabilities. Often the first sign of lingering dental pain is a refusal to eat. We’ll care for your loved ones as we care for our own.

Whole Mouth Care
Caring for oral inflammation and customizing dental implants used to require a handful of visits with a patient.
Because many of our patients require hospital dentistry — a fully anesthetized experience provided by a board-certified medical anesthesiologist — we take extra care to make sure your dental implants fit right the first time. To this end, we work closely with LaFayette Dental Laboratory to ensure a perfect fit.
If you need sedation to visit the dentist, you are not alone. We are the leading sedation dentistry team in Phoenix, AZ, and the surrounding area.
Eliminating Infection, Preserving Teeth, Boosting Confidence
Our first priority is to eliminate infection. Our second priority is to preserve natural teeth whenever possible. Our third priority is to give you a smile that you’re proud to share.
Many of our clients come to us because they’ve been turned away by other dentists. Some of our clients are unable to communicate verbally. They’ve experienced a kind of dentistry that we don’t condone, whereby damaged and infected teeth have been removed rather than repaired. Sometimes there’s no other option than to pull a natural tooth, but it should never happen for the provider’s convenience, or because a patient is unable to cooperate during an appointment. For these patients, we offer full sedation.
Oral Sedation, IV Sedation, or General Anesthesia
More than anything else, Sedation Dentistry is what sets us apart. We partner with board-certified medical anesthesiologists, just like you’d have in a hospital operating room.
We partner with medical anesthesiologists for your safety. At no time during any procedure should an anesthesiologist’s attention be anywhere but on your vital statistics. Likewise, the dentist’s focus should remain in your mouth. Our highly-trained team works expediently to limit the length of time our patients need to be sedated.
What to Expect
At the Center for Dental Rehabilitation, our goal is to make our patients feel as comfortable as possible. Starting with your first visit, you will meet with Dr. Toal and the staff to determine your specific needs. If you are not comfortable coming into the dental office, we will work with you to accommodate you as much as possible to make sure you have access to the care you deserve. Once you have met with Dr. Toal, she will develop a specific treatment plan for you ensuring we take care of your complete dental needs in the fewest number of settings possible. From there, our caring staff will walk you through the entire process, from scheduling testing to obtaining copies of your medical records prior to your procedure. We designed our entire system to make this as comfortable and seamless as possible.
