Review by Katie Gallegos
Janet S. Stopka, DDS, PC - reviews
I was recommended to use Janet for the Mercury filling removal that I had been wanting. I was able to set up a visit very fast and get the removal done just as fast. Every single person you encounter at the office is super nice and caring. The office is sparkling clean and the rooms face these huge windows so you have beautiful trees and birds to watch while getting work done. The mercury filling removal, fillings, and cleanings I've done have all been pain free and top quality.

Patients who are uneasy about visiting the dentist are encouraged to book their appointments with a dentist who provides sedation. Sedation dentistry is available with Dr Janet Stopka of Burr Ridge, IL and helps patients get into the dentist for necessary appointments without anxiety.


Dr Janet Stopka is proud to utilize a sedative known as nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide is sometimes referred to as “laughing gas.” It is effective at relaxing patients. Nitrous oxide is a specialized colorless gas administered through a mask over the nose to provide almost immediate calmness. Patients have their procedure performed while they are awake and coherent. To reverse the sedation, the dentist administers oxygen and within a few minutes, patients are fully alert


Sedation with nitrous oxide has several benefits. It is:

  • Effective
  • Safe
  • Immediate
  • Affordable


Patients often have different levels of anxiety. Some patients have had negative experiences in the past and may have extreme fears about visiting the dental chair. Others may be a little uneasy because of a strong gag reflex or worries about discomfort. Nitrous oxide can be administered to the level a patient needs for their anxieties, ensuring everyone who visits Dr Janet Stopka has a positive experience. Sedation can be used for cleanings or advanced procedures.


If you are uneasy about having dental work done, sedation can help. If you live in Burr Ridge, Illinois or any of the surrounding communities and are interested in learning about a dentist in the area that uses sedation, call Dr Janet Stopka today. Her friendly front office staff can be reached at 630 756-5844 or by personally visiting at her conveniently located practice at 16 W 289 83rd Street.
