Many patients get fearful at the thought of going to the dentist in Vaughan - some to the point of avoiding a treatment. Even the idea of a simple teeth-cleaning procedure can conjure up phobias for some patients. Sedation dentistry is designed to allay patient fears, and allow for a stress free visit to the dentist’s office. At the Mackenzie Dental Centre, Dr. Lloyd Pedvis offers Moderate Sedation to patients who might require a little more stress release during their dental treatment/procedure.

Also referred to as Conscious Sedation, Moderate Sedation makes a patient feel relaxed, yet quite conscious and awake, and without feeling any discomfort. Dr. Pedvis is professionally licensed to administer sedation medication, and the clinic team is trained to monitor patient blood pressure and heart rate. Depending on the procedure, Dr. Pedvis will decide on either Minimal Sedation or Moderate Sedation, both of which will ensure a comfortable and stress-free clinic experience.

While sedation is ideal for people who have real fear, other patients can also benefit greatly:

  • Those who have a low threshold for pain
  • Those who have sensitive teeth and gums
  • Those who are having a lot of dental work

With so many different dental services offered by Mackenzie Dental Centre, there may also be a need for a local anesthetic. This is designed to numb the area where the dentist is actually working and relieve any potential pain. Here again, Dr. Pedvis will recommend the best course of action, relative to the patient’s personal needs.

In some situations, children can be administered sedation - particularly when intense fear might compromise a specific procedure. Here, Nitrous Oxide is the ideal, being safe for children, in appropriate doses, based on age and weight. Dr. Pedvis is trained, licensed, and experienced in administering sedation, while the Mackenzie team carefully monitors the child. Overall, patient health and safety are always at the forefront of any procedure and/or treatment at the clinic.

Today, in a state-of-the-art dental clinic, Moderate Sedation can provide numerous benefits to all patients. Sedation medications are very easy to administer, and without the need for a syringe. Sedation itself is safe and effective for both adults and children. And finally, the sedative effect will allow a dentist to complete more work in less time. It means that patients will require fewer appointments, and more complex procedures can be performed in a shorter period of time.

For patients in Woodbridge, Vaughan, and Maple, the Mackenzie Dental Centre offers a full range of services for the entire family - everything from regular exams and cleanings, to cosmetic dentistry, to root canal treatment and implant surgery. Patients can rest assured of the highest standard of dentistry, whether they are coming for teeth whitening or something more complex. The Mackenzie Dental Centre is relaxing and comfortable – a clinic environment designed to satisfy every patient type.

Dr. Pedvis has been a member of the Ontario Dental Association and Canadian Dental Association for decades. He is a member of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario, and regularly attends continuing education programs to keep abreast of the latest advances in dental practice.

Holly D.

Our Family has gone to Dr. Pedvis for over 25 years in his previous location. You are all so lucky to have him and his team to look after you in Vaughan now. I am a very complicated dental patient due to healthcare issues… I knew I was always safe with Dr. Pedvis!  I will miss your great stories, and trying not to laugh, as you work on my dental issues. Most people do not get to laugh at "The Dentist". Your new office in Woodbridge looks awesome! 

Dorothy McMahon

I have been a patient of Dr. Pedvis for 13 yrs now. He is the greatest dentist I've ever had. He's extremely gentle, listens to your concerns and is compassionate. I once emailed the woodbridge dental office with a severe toothache when it was closed. Shortly after Dr. Pedvis contacted me with my concerns, he called in a prescription for me to get me out of pain. He then took me first thing in the morning and did a root canal. I highly recommend this dental office to anybody looking for a caring dentist. Also the staff is fantastic and they truly care about you as a person.

Kimberly Oppermann

I have seen many dentists prior to Dr. Pedvis, so I believe I have ample reference points to say that Dr. Pedvis is at the top of his field. He keeps up to date with developments in the field, invests in the latest equipment for his office and is able to handle a wide variety of procedures, from simple to complex. He also maintains an equally top level network of professionals to add to his service capabilities if needed.

Christopher Omiecinski

I am pleased to share my experience I had at the office of Dr. Lloyd Pedvis. From the moment I stepped into the office, I was made to feel welcome and comfortable, by the friendly competent staff. I found the office environment very pleasant. Dr. Pedvis is an excellent dentist. He takes the time to explain every procedure, and is attentive that I was comfortable at all times.

Melissa Lombardo

Me and my family have been going to Dr. Pedvis 's dental practice since 1995. He always performs excellent services, and is often available to handle emergencies. First class staff, as well. Their new location in Vaughan is stunning! Highly recommended.

Cameron A. M. Muir

Dr. Pedvis was so amazing! I can't say enough good things about him. Not only did he get me in quickly for a root canal (replying on a Sunday to my plea for help!). He was so great about addressing my pain and understanding my irrational fear. His follow up after the root canal was absolutely amazing! I was shocked at his follow through and care for his patients even after the procedure. I would recommend him to anyone in need of dental work.
