Sleep Dentistry

If you're one of the 30-40 million Americans who suffers from some form of dental anxiety or phobia, consider our sedation options. Choose between light sedation, which can relax and calm you but keep you awake and aware, and deep sedation, which puts you to sleep and makes you unaware of treatment.

Some testimonials


Renita P (3/30/2017)

"I have been terrified of dentist for years I have also had many bad experiences. Because of that my teeth suffered and I hadn't seen a dentist for over 2 years. I was recommended Dr. Roopa and I gathered up my nerves and made the call. All I have to say is if I could give her more than 5 stars I would give her all the stars in the sky. In the last two weeks alone I've had 2 crowns, 4 fillings and a deep cleaning. She is by far the best dentist I've ever encountered. I was so self conscious about my teeth and today after my last visit I can look in the mirror and smile again. She is also one of the sweetest, kindest person I've met. But let's not forget her staff her dental hygienist, her assistant and Erika at the front desk are the best. Never for one minute did any of them make me feel worse than I already did about my teeth. I will be grateful for them all every time I smile now..."

"I started my journey with DR. PAI...back in September of 2015. I was a referral from a co-worker. She assured me that I would absolutely LOVE Dr. Pai AND her staff!!! I have to admit, she was sooooo right!!! So far, I have had the BEST experience. I need a lot of dental work done, therefore, I need to be in a place where I feel comfortable enough to keep going. I'm having that experience now!!! Thank you Dr. Pai, Nancy, Karen, and Brenda for the excellent caring you provide! I wouldn't dream of going anyplace else...I feel at home now!!!"

"Dr Pai has been my dentist for nearly a decade, since she first moved into her Fremont, CA office.

The level of care I have received from her has been second to none. Her entire staff are extremely professional, friendly, and helpful.  Dr. Pai and her staff have done the whole gamut of work on me from teeth cleaning, to fillings, to Invisialign (which I HIGHLY recommend for any adult or child in lieu of braces).  Not once have I ever felt ANY pain or discomfort, and they always go the extra step to ensure their patients' comfort.

Dr. Pai is extremely trustworthy and honest.  In her consults she will outline all options and provide her opinion without forcing the patient into anything.  I have never been as happy with the appearance of my teeth as I am now, and I owe that to Dr. Pai's excellent care.  She will be my dentist for as long as she is in business and I live in the area!"

"As good a dentist as she is, Dr. Pai is an even better person. She's extraordinarily kind. She doesn't just care about her patient's teeth. It's evident in her warm spirit that she cares about her patients' everything."
