At Ora Dentistry, our top priority is to create a comfortable dental visit for each patient that walks through our doors. If you struggle with severe dental anxiety, have special needs or need lengthy dental work, we can help you relax in the dental chair. In addition to our comfort amenities and soothing office environment, Ora Dentistry proudly serves the Sacramento area with multiple levels of sedation dentistry, ranging from oral conscious sedation to IV sedation.

Not all dentists are licensed to administer IV sedation. We are proud to be a dental practice that is equipped to treat all levels of dental anxiety and provide deeper levels of sedation dentistry when necessary. At Ora Dentistry, we use IV sedation to help patients in a variety of circumstances, including those that have had a traumatic dental experience as a child, patients with a severe dental phobia or sensitive gag reflex, as well as those that need extensive dental work that involves a multi-step procedure.

Intravenous or IV sedation is often referred to as “twilight” sedation. It is a moderate form of sedation that helps patients remain in a very relaxed state throughout their dental procedure. IV sedation relies on a sedative drug that is released into your body intravenously in carefully titrated amounts. With IV sedation, we always monitor patients closely and can adjust or reverse the sedative effects at any point during the procedure. While the effects wear off quickly after the IV is stopped, we recommend that patients arrange for someone else to drive them home after their appointment.

Oral Conscious Sedation

For patients with mild to moderate dental anxiety, Ora Dentistry can also offer oral conscious sedation. This involves taking a prescribed sedative pill before you arrive at our office. This form of sedation puts patients in a calm and relaxed state with the ability to still communicate freely with our staff during the procedure. In most cases, the effects of oral conscious sedation last longer than your treatment. Therefore, it is again suggested that you have someone drive you home after your dental visit is complete.

We realize that patients have varying levels of anxiety and unique needs when it comes to dental care. We are proud to offer a full menu of sedation dentistry options so that you never avoid general, restorative or cosmetic dental work due to your fear of sitting in the dental chair. Our commitment to comfortable dental care is a highlighted advantage of choosing Ora Dentistry.

To learn more about how IV sedation or oral conscious sedation can improve your dental care experience, contact Ora Dentistry today. We serve Sacramento patients with general dentistry as well as specialized treatments involving dental implants, smile makeovers and clear orthodontics.

Very confused by the website and advertising as an after hour/emergency dental service. I broke a tooth this evening and was looking for emergency dental services for the earliest appointment. I called and a receptionist/operator picked up on a Friday evening close to 8 p.m. and said that the emergency dental service was only for existing patients. That isn't on the website and in fact, the top line on the website states if you need emergency dental care , call. Don't mind that they aren't able to see me, but the operator needs a better script when explaining their services and should also provide better service or don't be an after hour receptionist. She also never asked me if I WAS an existing patient. Would love to give no stars, but I can't post unless I pick one. UPDATE: So wasn't expecting the owner of the practice to call me. I spoke with Dr. Dalla and he explained in detail their policies and calmed my anxiety regarding my broken tooth.. I appreciate that he is a business owner that pays attention to what is being said about his practice and would take the time to follow up. I may have found a new dentist.

I’ve been searching for a dental office for my special needs daughter for a long time. I called many offices explaining her situation that she had Autism and anxiety and I was told they didn’t see special needs kids. I came across Ora Dentistry through my google search and gave them a call explained to them my situation and they told me they’d be happy to see her. We scheduled an appointment. On the day of the appointment I called again and explained her situation and told them she would like her sister and mom to be there for support due to her anxiety and they were totally accommodating and that put me at ease. We got to our appointment and were greeted by Bridgette she was AMAZING with my daughter she made her feel SUPER comfortable through out the entire process! I’ve never seen my daughter so calm and relaxed. When the doctor came in to do his exam on her he too was beyond nice and again made my daughter feel at ease. I really have to thank Ora dentistry for their excellent service! If you have a special needs child this is the place to go! Highly recommend it!

Two years ago I visited this office to assess the viability of getting an implant for a lost tooth. On that first visit Dr. Dalla had x-rays taken, made the assessment, provided me with options, including performing an implant on a lost back molar. I consented, and right then and there, he performed the actual implant and gave me a return appointment to insure all was healing well. Then, 3 months later, he fitted me with the abutment and took impressions for the crown. Two weeks after that the crown was installed. Not only was the work done in record time, but it has been the best fitting crown I've ever had, and I've had 18 crowns in my lifetime of 68 years. This was my second implant. My first implant was by another dental office and does not come close to compare with Dr. Dalla's work. His implant and crown feel like healthy, natural teeth, and in fact, I chew most of my food using that new "molar." I wish I would have gone to him long ago. By far the best around. He is a perfectionist, and is demanding of himself. Just what you should want in someone performing your dental work. Highest recommendations!
