Many patients have had unpleasant past experiences visiting the dentist. Patients often avoid their routine dental exams allowing more complex dental issues to manifest. Dr. Gabriel Overholtzer understands and has built his dental practice to provide a safe, comfortable space for patients to receive the dental care they need.

At Skyline Family Dentistry, we provide compassionate patient-focused dental care. We help our patients overcome their dental anxiety through relationship-based care. We maintain open communication and practice patient education in efforts to help our patients make informed decisions about their dental health.


Patients with dental anxiety may benefit from using a form of sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry allows patients to totally relax while they receive dental care. While patients are under sedation, Dr. Overholtzer is able to provide multiple procedures in one sitting.

Dr. Overholtzer will perform a thorough medical history and oral exam to determine which sedation option is best suited to your needs. Our dental care team will explain your options for your safety.

If you feel anxious or avoid visiting the dentist due to fear of the dentist, contact Skyline Family Dentistry. Our dental care team will make every effort to ensure your optimal comfort during your routine dental exam or for a total smile makeover.
