Valium is used for management of anxiety and to provide light sedation and amnesia. This medication will NOT cause your child to be asleep during the dental procedure.
Route & Absorption: administered orally and well-absorbed from the gastro-intestinal tract, the onset of medication occurs within 60-90 minutes of administration. The amount of valium given will be based on your child’s weight.
Pre-Valium Appointment Instructions
1. Your child should have NOTHING to eat or drink for the following times:
Nothing after midnight the night before the appointment.
2. If you are going to be unable to keep your appointment, please call Cary Pediatric Dentistry at least 24 hours in advance.

Courtney B. said about Vanessa – “She was wonderful when cleaning my daughter’s teeth – “drawing letters, etc.”
She had tons of tricks – my daughter didn’t even know she had anything done.”
