Innovative Technology

Our Wichita, KS, office is equipped with modern dental technology to make our treatments more accurate, efficient, and comfortable for you.

We use an i-CAT™ Cone Beam 3-D Dental Imaging Scanner and the latest generation iTero® Intraoral Scanner to carefully design dental restorations and porcelain veneers. With our VELscope® Oral Assessment System, our dentist can detect signs of oral cancer in its earliest and most treatable stages. In addition, our DIAGNOdent™ laser enables us to identify even the smallest cavities in the teeth.

Dr. Nordhus and his team are outstanding. They are professional, friendly, and kind. I never thought a trip to the dentist would be a pleasant experience, but I actually leave their office with a more upbeat feeling than before I entered. Ellen A.

Sedation Dentistry

We understand that many Americans avoid important dental care because of dentistry-related anxiety, or even a dental phobia. Because regular visits to the dentist are essential to maintain both your oral and your overall health, we are happy to offer multiple sedation options to the Wichita, KS, community.

Sedation dentistry enables nervous patients to access the benefits of dentistry. We provide oral sedatives, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation. We can utilize sedation for the most basic or the most advanced dental procedures. The form of sedation that is best for you will depend on your treatment and your level of dental anxiety. If sedation dentistry interests you, ask one of our team members when you call for your appointment.

Your Sedation Dentistry Options

Sedated patient with nitrous oxide

Nitrous Oxide

This light form of sedation is inhaled through a mask placed over your nose. The gas will quickly put you in a state of deep relaxation, but you will be fully awake and able to communicate with Dr. Nordhus. You might even giggle a bit, which is why nitrous oxide is nicknamed laughing gas. The effects wear off quickly, allowing you to drive yourself home from treatment.

Oral Sedation

This deeper sedation method comes in the form of a prescribed sedative pill. You will swallow this sedative before your procedure at our Wichita office. It will make you very drowsy but you will still be conscious and able to talk. The sedative effect lasts for a few hours, so you will definitely need someone to drive you to and from your appointment for your safety.

IV with person lying down in the background

IV Sedation

With IV sedation, Dr. Nordhus administers a powerful sedative into your bloodstream which will take effect almost immediately. You will be extremely relaxed and may actually sleep during your procedure, but you will never be fully unconscious. An advantage of IV sedation is you may not remember the dental procedure at all. Someone will need to drive you home and stay with you while you recover from IV sedation.

Outstanding Results Achieve a vibrant smile

Removing Insurance Barriers

"Nearly 20 years ago, I made the decision when I opened my practice that neither my patients nor I would be governed by insurance companies. My team and I are strongly dedicated to a higher standard of care which includes advanced training and education, access to modern materials and technologies, and higher standards from our dental labs. The decision to not be in-network for any dental insurance is not a financial decision but one of integrity. We cannot ethically treat our dental patients with lower quality of care because we believe our patients deserve exceptional dentistry.

A few years ago, we introduced a membership plan for our non-insurance patients and the reviews we are getting are great! Our patients tell us that it's better than insurance! To learn more about your options, please take a look at our Membership Club."
