Dr. Alice R. Fukui is Volterra Dental’s associate doctor and received her IV Conscious Sedation License, as well as certification in basic life support and advanced cardiovascular life support. Dr. Fukui is proud to offer our patients the option for IV sedation and hopes to dispel any existing fears of coming to our office.

About Dr. Alice FukuiIntravenous sedation can be used for a wide range of different procedures and allow our patients to feel comfortable and actually relaxed during their visit with us. Some offices refer to IV Sedation as “sleep dentistry” because many patients experience no pain during their procedure and also feel as if their time passed by very quickly. The anti-anxiety sedative used in IV sedation also causes patients to have a little-to-no recollection of their treatment, even though you are technically conscious during the entire thing!

Dr. Fukui is also able to adjust the levels of medication administered throughout the procedure while keeping a watchful eye on your blood pressure and vital signs.

It is our goal to make our patients feel comfortable, relaxed, and calm each time they are in our office. Call us or request an appointment today and we will be happy to discuss all your options and any questions you may have.

There is no need to fear the dentist anymore! Give us a call at (562) 501-3188 or schedule your appointment online today.
