Afraid of the Dentist? Fear not!
Not many people enjoy visits to the dentist. Fortunately, we as dentists understand this and strive to create a friendly, relaxing environment for our patients. I am trained in handling fearful patients and offer a variety of methods and treatments to help reduce this stress.
Patients who have a lot of anxiety about an exam or procedure need to communicate these fears to their dentist and staff. By being aware of your concerns, we can create a plan to manage each persons' anxiety. I find sometimes all it takes is explanation of the procedure and what to expect.
I like to:
No two people are the same and no plan for dental anxiety management will be the same. Simply inform us next time you are in and we will work to create the ideal stress reduction management plan catered to your needs. I take great pleasure seeing patients leave my Wilsonville family dentist office feeling good about their visit and, most importantly, with a smile that helps them feel their best.
Happy Summer Everyone!
