Hey, my name is Shelly Katalgo. My love for sedation dentistry started in high school. My best friend had a severe fear of going to the dentist and I wanted to help her feel better about it. Although I always enjoyed my dental visits, I felt bad that she struggled so much with going to hers. My parents taught me about sedation dentistry and I instantly dreamed of becoming a dental professional. I wanted to help kids like my friend stay fear free throughout their appointments by using gentle techniques and professional medications. Although I opted to follow a different career path, my passion for dentistry remained throughout the years. I will update my site with developments in this industry as soon as they are reported. I will also discuss the benefits of sedation dentistry in detail. Thanks for visiting. I hope you come back soon.

Straight teeth are often seen as more attractive than crooked teeth. While some people might be willing to spend between $3,000 and $7,000 on traditional metal braces that will straighten out any crooked teeth and improve their appearance, dropping this much cash on a cosmetic fix might seem like a lot for others. It's important to realize that your crooked teeth could be doing more than causing you to lose your appeal to the opposite sex, those crooked chompers could be causing serious medical problems.
