Back to work

Due to unforeseen events, our clinic is still closed. Dr. Witzu recently had a serious accident which resulted in a spinal injury.


Dr. Witzu is doing well and is currently in rehabilitation and slowly mending. Dr. Kwong Hing from Sudbury Smiles Dentistry had graciously agreed to see anyone who needs to make an appointment before our clinic re-opens. Dr. Hing can be reached at 705-522-0220 ext. 1. Alternatively, if you have a dental emergency, you can contact the emergency on-call dentist at 249-869-1072.


We’d like to thank you for your continued patience.


Thank you,

On behalf of Dr. Witzu and the staff at Chelmsford Family Dentistry

Oral Sedation with Our Chelmsford Dentist: Skip the Anxiety
— Not Your Appointment!

At Chelmsford Family Dentistry, we understand that many patients face various levels of anxiety during dental procedures. Whether you’re undergoing an extensive treatment, surgery, or are just prone to anxiety during regular checkups, we can offer effective oral sedation techniques and careful dental techniques to make you more comfortable.

Oral sedation works well for most patients and offers advantages and disadvantages over other sedation methods. For example, it is easy to administer; you simply swallow a small pill. However, you will need to have someone drive you to and from your dental appointment.

Oral sedatives do not provide pain relief, so local anesthetics are used to numb sensation in the affected area. Usually patients are so relaxed and comfortable from the oral sedation that they barely notice when the local anesthetic is administered. Chelmsford Family Dentistry has access to various sedation techniques. We can make arrangements for I.V. sedation and general anesthesia when required.

Our goal is to make you feel as at ease as possible and most of our patients experience great results so that over time they often do not wish to take the sedative any longer. They feel no pain. They are at ease during their dental appointment and often find that they do not need the sedation forever! They elect to stop the medication because their fear is no longer present. Our aim is to make your appointment as comfortable as possible for you so that your perception of dentistry becomes a more positive experience.

For more information about dental sedation or to schedule an appointment at our office, please call Chelmsford Family Dentistry.
