I'm afraid of the dentist. How can you help?
We are sensitive to the fact that many people are anxious about dental visits. That is why our team goes out of their way to make every aspect of your experience with us pleasant and free of worry.
An essential part our relationship with you is trust. We take the time to get to know you so we can understand what’s important to you and how we can help. Our team encourages you to ask questions because it’s easier for you to relax when you know your concerns are being addressed.
Most of us have been working in the dental field for decades, and we have helped many anxious patients get the necessary care they need. For some, all it takes to relax is a friendly word or smile. But if you need a hand to hold, we’re here for you too.
However, some people may still feel nervous and need some extra help to relax. If you like, our doctors can prescribe a sedative for you to take before your appointment. When you get to our office, you will feel calm and relaxed, and the stress of your visit will melt away. Just remember that it takes a while for the effects to wear off, so you will need a friend to drive you to and from the office.
Please don’t let anxiety ruin your oral health. We can assure you that you will have a dental visit with us that is more pleasant than you ever thought possible. Please call our Summerville, SC dental office so we can get started!
