Day 2 – This is a busy visit! We administer nitrous oxide to Mike so we can extract two teeth and take master impressions that will lead to his new smile.
It is a few weeks before Christmas, and we are wondering if we can get this project done before the holiday. This second visit is a long one; we will break it up into three parts. In the first part, Dara lends a hand as we take photo records.

Nitrous Oxide is used while removing teeth.
The following photos show the extractions of teeth No. 22 and 27. We offer the use of nitrous oxide Mike. I like nitrous oxide for a lot of reasons, one of them being that it is safe to administer and there are no long-term effects. Five minutes after we turn off the machine, all the effects of nitrous oxide have left the body; if Mike needed to drive home, it would not be a problem. Nitrous oxide is a sedative that has a calming, soothing effect; however, it cannot always be counted on to block pain.
In some ways, I think of its effect as a distraction for the patient, allowing me to go to work. It doesn’t work the same on all our patients, but for the ones that it does work for, it just, well, takes them to a happy place! Mike elects to use the nitrous oxide, and I’m glad. I want to make him as comfortable as humanly possible, considering what he has to go through.
Making master impressions for upper and lower dentures.
The teeth have been removed, and we elect to go straight to taking master impressions.
Finally, we are done for this day. We packed up our master impressions and send them off to the lab to have the wax rims fabricated in time for the next visit.
Who doesn’t love having clean teeth? It’s a great day when I get to have my teeth cleaned by Kim at Seasons of Smiles. She is gentle, very thorough and shares her insights for how to continue to care for my teeth. I have been a patient of Dr. Medina’s for about 18 years and I couldn’t be happier. I know everyone in my family is getting the best care for our teeth and gums.
I never have a hesitation when I have to make an appointment for Dr Medina and staff... they are all great and make you feel so comfortable. Would highly recommend if you are in need of a new dentist!!
Definitely the best dental experience I've ever had for as far as easy relaxing explaining everything to very good place to go I'd highly recommend them they've taken good care of me over the last few years
Fantastic. Brought some issues to Dr. Medina that he did not cause, and discovered that he is a ray of light in his profession. Dr. Medina has superb diagnostic and clinical instincts, an excellent facility, and really great staff.Looking forward to many years of excellent care.Thank you.
Seasons of smiles has been my dentist for many years. Very informative, We talk about the how and why of dentistry every time I'm there! Dr Medina always lets you know exactly what needs to be done, and how to improve your smile.
One more post today for Dr.Medina - although I love the background music that he plays to help the comfortable atmosphere in the office, I REALLY LOVED the Hawaiian music today! Loved Israel's singing and the relaxing music! Good choice, Dr. Medina!!!👍
My husband gets his treatment there. He is a veteran with many conditions. The staff makes him comfortable, and communication is fantastic. Dr. Medina and staff, he knows is 5 stars from the front desk to the clinical staff. He is very grateful. ❤️

I have nothing but amazing things to say about my experience at Seasons of Smiles Dental. The staff are all amazing, they got me right in and were so kind and welcoming! I would highly recommend them to all friends and family.
I’m a new patient. The staff made me feel very comfortable and didn’t pressure me into making decisions on the spot. I had gotten a lot of information to digest and certainly needed time to sort it. And I thank them for their patience.
I have been to a lot of dentists and I’m one tough customer. My mouth is very sensitive and I’m a big, fat cry baby.
Dr Medina (and crew!) is the best dentist that has ever worked on my mouth!
They are focused on keeping you comfortable and to have as minimal pain as possible. They are also “teeth perfectionists”. Everything they do is done right. I’m so happy to have Season of Smiles as my dental office! They are amazing! 👍🏻
I love the warm welcome at Seasons of Smiles Dental. Samantha and Kim are always very gentle and provide compassionate advice to myself and my children emphasizing the importance of keeping up our good work to keep our teeth shiny. Dr. Medina and his entire team are hands down fantastic in every way!
I have gone to them for just about my whole life! I’m terrified of the dentist but they give such a personal & caring experience, it makes it so much easier. The rest of my family hasn’t been in years, but the staff never forgets to ask how each family member is doing. Amazing people and great work!
If all dentist offices, including all personnel, were like this office my teeth wouldn’t be in such rough shape. They give good advice without criticizing. Very friendly staff. Highly recommend Seasons of Smiles. Jon Skinner
