Team Approach In One Convenient Location

Riverfront Dental Care values your time, which is why we provide all of our services in-house, meeting all your dental needs in one convenient location. Perhaps your child has a cavity at the same time that you need a new dental crown, or maybe your elderly parent needs dentures with dental implants while your teenage son needs IV sedation for his wisdom teeth extractions. 

Normally, all of these appointments would require a lot of consultations around town, going to different dental offices. A multi-specialty dental practice consists of a team of dental specialists, all practicing under one roof, saving you time and money - no extra appointments or unnecessary travel needed to improve your whole family's oral health.

The Riverfront Dental Care team is made up of a dedicated team of dental professionals.  Our general dentist - Dr. Katie Vargas, oral surgeon - Dr. Andrew Wargo, and periodontist - Dr. Anthony Vargas, supported by friendly hygientist, dental assistants and administrators, work together as a team to take care of you and your family's dental needs.

A team of dental specialists = outstanding dental care.

Sedation Background | Riverfront Dental

IV Sedation

The American Dental Association estimates that 22% of Americans avoid dental visists due to fear and anxiety. If you suffer from Dental Phobia, you are not alone. Riverfront Dental Care offers many levels of sedation to help you ease your dental anxiety. IV Sedation is an effective way to combat dental phobia. It is sometimes referred to as 'twilight' or 'sleep' dentistry. In a safe and controlled environment, you will feel relaxed and at peace, and still be in a position to respond to the dentist's requests and questions. The dental procedures will be completed before the sedatives wear off, and most people have very vague or no recollection of the procedure. Riverfront Dental Care doctors can perform multiple procedures in one visit, with the help of IV sedation. This means that patients who need extensive dental care can receive treatments in fewer visits. This not only reduces the fear and apprehension associated with dental visits, but also cuts down on dental care costs.
