Are You Afraid of the Dentist?

Let’s have a moment of honesty. After all, many of our patients have been there before, afraid of a procedure, small or surgical. Dentistry can be invasive and leave patients feeling vulnerable. Our greatest joy is providing excellent dental care and establishing a trusting relationship with each patient each time you visit our office.

What are some of the most common fears we see?

1. Fear of dental equipment (ask to hold our tools…it will make you feel better)

2. Fear of loud noises (bring some noise-canceling headphones or earplugs to help you out)

3. Fear of breathing through the nose (nasal strips can be a big advantage)

For those of you that struggle with fear of dental procedures, the folks at the Huffington Post have created a list of the most common dental fears. Take a look at the article here, and then read through our Patient Education Center.
