In 2008 he started offering moderate IV sedation for patients who may require a deeper level of sedation. IV sedation has been a huge blessing for patients wishing a deeper level of sedation for implant placement, wisdom teeth and those needing extensive care.
Aside from family and sedation dentistry services, Dr. Grundy provides TMJ treatment and dental implants. Since 2004, he has placed over 500 implants.
Derek has been married his wife Laurie for 31 years. They have 4 children and 5 very special grandchildren who bring them great joy.
