Dear Valued Patients,


Serving you for 26 years has transformed me and my profession as a dentist. For this, I feel honored to serve each of you in managing your dental health. It is time for me to pass the baton. I am privileged to pass the dental practice that I hold in my heart, Aesthetic and General Dentistry, to Dr. Peter Kelly, a qualified and knowledgeable dentist with a myriad of talents and experience.


I will still be here to offer my services in the next few months, to assist Dr. Kelly and his partners in this transition. I am also happy to inform you that our entire outstanding dental team will remain with Dr. Kelly. I have confidence that Dr. Kelly will continue the practice’s mission of providing excellent dental care.


Thank you so much for all the experience in becoming a better dentist to you. My personal journey is taking me along another pathway. I will remember you, the relationship, and the memories.


With best wishes and deep gratitude,


Alfredo M. Gapuz, Jr., DMD

Sedation Dentistry

Dental phobia can prevent you from getting the dental care you need to stay healthy.

At Aesthetic and General Dentistry in Orlando, FL, we offer various forms of sedation dentistry to help you feel calm during your visit.

Have you been putting off treatment due to fear of the dentist? Here's how sedation can help you...

Pain-Free Experience

By offering sedation in addition to local anesthesia (which blocks physical pain and sensation), Dr. Alfredo Gapuz can provide a comfortable, pain-free experience for his Orlando patients.

Calm State of Mind

If you suffer from dental anxiety, choosing sedation can help you feel calm and relaxed during your appointment. It may even help you build a more positive relationship with visits to the dentist.

More Efficient Treatment

It is more difficult to treat a tense, anxious patient. By helping you achieve relaxation in the dentist's chair, Dr. Gapuz can provide more efficient care.

If visiting the dentist generates feelings of fear and anxiety, we offer advanced sedation dentistry solutions to make your visits as calming and pain-free as possible. As an experienced sedation dentist in Orlando, Dr. Alfredo Gapuz can safely alleviate anxiety and discomfort using advanced techniques. He can perform a variety of cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures with sedation dentistry, including porcelain veneers, dental implants and many other options.

Conscious Sedation

Conscious sedation is a drug-induced state of reduced awareness. We provide you with an oral conscious sedative pill to take about one hour before your procedure, which puts you in a deep state of relaxation during your treatment. You will still be able to communicate and respond to Dr. Gapuz during the procedure. One of our experienced dental team members will closely monitor your progress throughout the treatment. This allows you to undergo your dental procedure in a relaxed state without intense fear or anxiety during the treatment. Oral conscious sedation makes it possible for you to receive dental treatment virtually painlessly. In fact, you may not even have any recollection the procedure took place at all once it is complete. Dr. Gapuz advises patients who have oral conscious sedation that they will need to arrange for someone to drive them to and from our practice for the procedure.


As an alternative to oral conscious sedation, our office offers NuCalm™, a high-tech and all-natural system that also keeps you in a relaxed state throughout your procedure. After treatment, patients feel rejuvenated, rather than disoriented and groggy. NuCalm’s™ substance-free method allows you to leave the office safely on your own and without recovery time.

Contact Our Practice

If your fear and anxiety about visiting the dentist gives you second thoughts about attaining necessary dental care, please contact our practice today for more information on our sedation dentistry techniques.
