Soothe Your Nerves With Our Compassionate Team

You certainly aren’t alone when it comes to fearing the dentist. In fact, studies have shown about 36 percent of people are afraid of getting dental treatments. However, the last thing you want to do is avoid going to the dentist at all. We understand how nerve-wracking it can be to take that first step toward overcoming your unease. We go the extra mile to make sure you feel comfortable with:

  • Cozy Amenities – We have massaging patient chairs you can relax in during your appointment. We also have warm blankets if you feel chilly, and soothing white noise or music to block out the sounds of our equipment.
  • Our Comfort Dog, April – April is often one of the highlights of many appointments! She is a small labradoodle who adores people and loves making you smile.
  • Affordable Care – Many patients don’t have insurance, which is why we have our Smile Club. It covers preventive care like cleanings and exams for a small monthly fee. Plus, you get a 15 percent discount on services like cosmetic and restorative treatments.
  • Caring Staff – Our entire staff is committed to giving you quality care with gentleness and compassion. We welcome any questions you may have about your treatments and will walk you through the process of what to expect while you’re here.
  • Modern Technology – We use digital X-rays to easily capture images of your teeth, and we also use intraoral cameras to get a closer look inside your mouth. This equipment makes for easier appointments and more comfortable treatment.

Common Questions

Can you help with relieving dental anxiety?

Yes, we would be more than happy to help you through your dental anxiety. Over the years, we’ve been able to help thousands of patients relax so they could receive much-needed dental care. Our staff is trained to be as calming and compassionate as possible, and you’ll love a snuggle from our comfort dog, April.

What can I do before my appointment to relieve dental anxiety?

Before your appointment, we suggest visualizing a positive experience and practicing deep breathing exercises. You can also visit our office at a quiet time, when other patients may not be around. Ask us about this option when you call us to make your appointment. Share any concerns you have with us beforehand. We can even establish a signal for you to use to indicate if you need a break.

Why is relieving dental anxiety important?

Fear of the dentist can be so severe that a patient will not come into the office for decades at a time. Because oral health affects overall health, this person is likely suffering not only in their mouth but also in other areas of their body. It’s important that we find a solution for the fear so that every patient can remain healthy.
