It's important for a patient with dental anxiety to be made to feel comfortable at our office. And that's because dental fear is probably the biggest barrier to patients coming in. Unfortunately, it's not a fun thing for us to hear. But a lot of patients come in, every day, we see a patient who says, 'I hate the dentist. It's not you, but I hate the dentist.' And I understand that. I understand that people have had negative experiences in their past. So it's our job to not only find out why or what has happened in their past, what it is that they are in particular afraid of, but also to mitigate those concerns and answer questions. So I think that tell, show, do, one of the biggest things is letting a patient know ahead of time what's going to happen, what they're expected to feel, what they're expected to experience before, during, and after a procedure.
So I think talking to them and communicating with anything, it's better to know what's coming for a lot of people. But then also, we do offer mild sedation options for patients. If talking is not enough or letting them know what's going to happen is not enough, if reassurance is not enough, then we do have sedation options for our patients. So we encourage patients to come on in. Let's talk about those options to get this work that you need done, this treatment that you really need done, done comfortably for you.
You’ll find it easy to relax with:
- Patient-friendly technology, including digital X-rays
- Private care rooms
- A compassionate staff
- Massaging chairs and other comforts
- Safe oral sedation, if you need it
