Is a dentist who is isn’t trained in sedation able to give you diazepam or similar to take the edge of having treatment in the UK? Really don’t want sedation but it would be nice to be a bit more relaxed !

Apparently, it has become more difficult for dentists in England to prescribe oral sedatives, @drhirst wrote a post about this a couple of years ago:


If you're just looking for a minimal dose as a premedication, it should be possible though (I would have thought) :) . Let us know what they say!

There's some more information on premedication and oral sedation here:
