Fortunately, many of today’s dentists are sensitive to patient concerns when it comes to dental fear and anxiety. More understand the need to be communicative before and during procedures, take ample time during numbing procedures and offer options to enhance comfort. However, for those who are ages 50 and over (who had care when dentistry was less sensitive to fear issues), memories of a traumatic experience in the past can remain embedded for decades. These memories can interfere or prevent people from receiving the care they need to enjoy a healthy, confident smile.
For those who’ve avoided regular dental care because of fear, our entire team is ready! We are structured to help fearful patients achieve dental care at a comfortable pace. From your initial telephone conversation with our friendly staff to your first visit, you’ll find you are in a setting where your concerns are truly respected in a ‘lecture free’ zone.
We begin with a conversation in our private Consultation room that is removed from the clinical side of the practice. Here, you can share your concerns and have your questions answered thoroughly. I’ll explain how we’ve helped many adults overcome their fears, for good! I’ll also discuss comfort options to enhance relaxation during treatment.
What you’ll realize is our commitment to help you achieve the healthy smile you want while instilling a sense of trust. The LAST thing we want is for you to feel uncomfortable! Begin by arranging a no-cost consultation appointment so I can answer your questions in a comfortable, ‘living room style’ setting.
Your smile should be a positive part of your health, appearance and self-confidence. Don’t let an unfortunate experience from your past keep you from the terrific smile you deserve! Call (910) 254-4555 to speak to our caring phone staff.
