As a Dentist, I cannot imagine hurting a patient. Even more, I cannot fathom why a Dentist would continue to work on a patient they can see is in pain. Yet, the horror stories I have heard from people tell me there are still Dentists who are creating dental phobics. Unfortunately, many of these individuals end up avoiding much-needed dental care for years.
While I’ve always been committed to providing exceptional results and flattering smiles, I also know that dentistry can be performed without the patient experiencing pain.
For fearful patients, most do fine with Oral Sedation, which requires no needles to administer and has a quick recovery. We also offer I.V. Sedation for a ‘twilight sleep’ state for people who need a deeper level of sedation. However, many patients opt for Oral Sedation once they realize they can trust me to prevent any discomfort throughout their procedure.
A healthy, confident smile is an important part of one’s overall health and well-being. If you know someone who avoids dentistry because of fear, suggest they call toll free 1-866-9-Smiles for a free consultation. I’ll be happy to talk with them in our comfortable consultation room (which is removed from the clinical side of the practice) and answer any questions.
