Reading Dental Sedation Clinic was established in 1994 offering family dentistry alongside treatments under sedation.

We specialise in treating nervous patients and accept NHS Exempt patients by referral for Sedation as well as Private patients.  All staff are certified by SAAD to carry out sedation in a safe and professional environment, carrying out IV Sedation as a form of anxiety control to make treatment more pleasant for patients.


How can I be seen for Sedation Treatment?

You can be referred by your dentist. Your dentist would need to complete a form instructing us of what treatment is required to be carried out and send into the practice along with any relevant x-rays and medical history you have.

Treatment is available for all NHS Exempt patients by referral only and private paying patients charged independently. Our independent fees are available directly from the practice. You are welcome to contact the practice for an estimate quotation to guide you on the potential cost of treatment. Our friendly team are happy to answer any questions you may have.

• Children over the age of 12 years old

• Adults with no complicated medical history (See referral information)

Can a patient be seen urgently or as an emergency?

If your dental treatment is an emergency and you are suffering with pain your appointment will be prioritised and the practice will see you as soon as they can. Same day emergency appointments are available. We would suggest you call the practice for advice for any urgent or complicated referral.


Can I refer myself as a patient?

Yes you can. To do this you will need to be assessed by the dentist prior to treatment. We can only see you on a private basis without referral.

We also welcome referrals for Implants, Root Canal Treatment & Minor Surgical Procedures (extractions) on a private basis. We would suggest you contact the practice directly for advice.

Patient Reviews

Practice Verified Testimonials

I was nervous about root canal treatment but greatly appreciated the skill and care during the treatment by a particular dentist. He was communicative throughout and only minimal discomfort was experienced both during and after the treatment, it was almost a pleasure to visit the dentist!

I received fantastic professional service of the highest quality from Reading Dental Sedation Clinic. Dr Gerrit Snyman and his staff make you feel welcome immediately. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and my appointment was on time. I decided to use sedation to remove two rotten teeth. The procedure was very professional, quick and painless. I do recommend Reading Dental Sedation Clinic very highly, it is just so much better that expect from a Sedation Clinic.

I want to thank all the staff and dentist - from the moment I walked in I was put at ease. Treatment was explained in detail and done very professionally.

No pain, no worry, no stress, no fear. Fantastic. Staff were amazing. All work done was perfect. I cannot praise the staff enough.

I had a very nasty extraction done this week and I would like to thank the dentist and his assistant for looking after me so well. I was really scared, and what I really liked is the way the dentist talking me through all the time what he was going to be doing i.e. there is going to be a lot of drilling and pressure now, this helped me prepare for what was coming. Thank you again for your patience and care.

I put off badly needed dental treatment for 5 years but was forced into it by toothache. Needed two back wisdom teeth extractions and three fillings and I was NOT looking forward the appointment. I suffer from panic attacks and was preparing for an ordeal, despite being scheduled for IV sedation. All of your staff were polite, friendly and put me at my ease - very much appreciated. As for the operation - after 5 years of worry, all I can remember of the whole 1hr appointment was a deep feeling of calm, then waking up after what felt like five minutes! Really good experience all round, I can’t thank you enough (all the more so as I was a referral patient). Gives me great pleasure to be able to leave a good review.
