We do things a little differently.
Here at the Center for Dental Rehabilitation, we believe in treating the mouth as a single organism. What does that mean for you? We’re absolutely committed to clearing your mouth of all infection — in as few visits as possible. We don’t believe in high-volume dentistry. We believe that we have an obligation to you, our client, to restore your dental health as quickly, painlessly, and permanently as possible.

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. To learn more about sedation dentistry in Phoenix, Glendale, Mesa, Chandler, Scottsdale, and the surrounding Arizona area, please call our office to schedule your consultation.
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 ExpectAt 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.

If you suffer from a dental phobia or have a severe anxiety to the dentist or medical facilities, it can take more than just a little nudge to get you the dental care that you deserve. At the Center for Dental Rehabilitation, we understand that this is not easy for you. We understand that sometimes, you might need a hand to help you through the door. We want you to understand that we are here for you. We are 100% dedicated to going the extra mile for our patients, even if that means meeting you out in the parking lot. We’ll do what it takes to make you feel comfortable.
Your oral health is important. Whether you realized it or not, your mouth’s nearest neighbor is the brain, so making sure that you receive routine cleanings and preventative dental care is a must! At the Center for Dental Rehabilitation, we focus on the whole mouth to ensure you receive the proper dental care you need in as few visits as possible. Whether you are looking for a general cleaning or you have a broken tooth that needs to be repaired, our staff are standing by and waiting for your call!
Along with General Dentistry, dental hygiene and routine cleanings are more important than you may have realized. Normally the body’s natural defenses and good oral health care, such as daily brushing and flossing, keep bacteria under control. However, without proper oral hygiene, bacteria can reach levels that might lead to oral infections, such as tooth decay and gum disease.
When it comes to Periodontics, the Center for Dental Rehabilitation focuses on a whole mouth approach to dental care. Gum disease or Periodontal Disease affects over 80% of US adults and affects more than just our “older” population. Our approach to treating the whole mouth versus just one side or one issue allows us to help patients receive the dental care they need in fewer visits with lasting results. Dr. Maureen Toal is familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease allowing the Center for Dental Rehabilitation to be your one stop shop for dental care.
The restoration or replacement of lost or damaged teeth can be a challenging process for some dental offices. In fact, most general dentist offices refer these cases out to a specialist. For patients with a dental phobia or special needs, this can be challenging to have to visit another office, meet a new doctor and so on. At the Center for Dental Rehabilitation, Dr. Maureen Toal has a unique understanding of the elements that go into restoring a persons natural smile! Our goal is to help our patients achieve their desired results in as few visits as possible. This helps save time, money, and creates a more positive dental experience!
With over 25 years experience, Dr. Maureen Toal and the staff at the Center for Dental Rehabilitation have the knowledge and experience to handle even the most difficult dental cases. From root canals to traumatic dental injuries, our practice focuses on preserving and repairing your teeth and restoring your natural smile!
At the Center for Dental Rehabilitation, we have designed a state of the art surgical center to cover all of your oral surgery needs. Our treatment plans involve treating more than just one aspect of the mouth. We are able to handle everything from dental implants, biopsies, reconstructive surgery, removing wisdom teeth, and more.
Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Years of neglect or traumatic dental injuries can require an extensive reconstruction and rehabilitation to restore a persons natural smile. Most dentist offices are not equipped to handle a whole mouth reconstruction and are often referred to Dr. Maureen Toal at the Center for Dental Rehabilitation. Our goal is to optimize the health of the entire mouth, including teeth, gums, and aesthetics using a combination of dental services.
Some of the most common diseases that impact our oral health include cavities (tooth decay), gum (periodontal) disease, and oral cancer. At the Center for Dental Rehabilitation, our oral pathology services allow us to focus on the whole mouth, helping diagnose and treat a wide range of abnormalities and diseases.
