Shelby Township, You don’t need to be afraid the Dentist…

added on: October 12, 2009

For many Americans going to the dentist is a frightful event, even though dentistry has changed so much in the past years. A visit to the dentist can now be relaxing and fun. Unfortunately, this is not enough for the approximately 145 million people who avoid the dentist due to fear.Together with my caring team, I’ve recently completed special training to update our skills to allow us to treat these fearful people. Using a small pill, people can now have their dental care accomplished while they are totally relaxed and absolutely comfortable.Since I started offering sedation about 8 years ago, I have learned that building trust takes more than a pill though.  You have to work with your entire team to be very sensitive to patients with high fear and apprehension.  It’s unfortunate that so many good people are avoiding needed care due to fear. I hope that these people learn about this safe and wonderful technique of anxiety-free dentistry.I’ve been a member of the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS) since 2000.   The purpose of DOCS is to provide the education necessary for dentists to provide needed care to the large population of people who are avoiding the dentist and to improve their lives with better dental health.Dentistry is very high tech today with all sorts of gadgets that get the job done better and quicker.  With anxiety-free dentistry, I can bridge the gap between technology and comfort. You should see the look on the faces of my patients when they complete their care and they have a healthy mouth – there aren’t words to describe it! That look is why I love dentistry. I helped to change someone’s life.We are proud of this commitment to our community.To experience serene care, call us soon 586-739-2155 or contact us via our website.Ban R. Barbat, DDS
