  1. So Many Of Us Have Dental Phobia

    Do you find yourself putting off important dental treatments because you’re afraid of anxiety or fear? Or do you wonder why your family member has such a fear of going to the dentist, even if it’s just for a routine cleaning? Many Americans deal with dental phobia, or fear of the dentist. Some of these individuals are so fearful that they haven’t set foot in a dentist’s office in years. We want patients to know that we understand this fear, and that we offer a solution so that you or your loved one can get the dental care they deserve. Read more about how we help patients have a comfortable dental experience every visit.

  2. Fear Not

    Odontophobia is the technical term for dental anxiety or dental phobia. To a degree, being nervous about a dental visit is a normal reaction — an estimated 75% of Americans experience some level of fear of the dentist. 25% of Americans, however, are estimated to be dental phobic, according to a Businesswire.com article. This is characterized by a severe state of fear that makes an individual feel like something bad will happen during a dental treatment, so much so that they avoid going to the dentist entirely.

  3. There Is No Need to Avoid Your Dental Care!

    Let’s face it, while everyone loves a beautiful smile, few love the visits to the dentist that make that possible. In fact, you may be one of the more than 15% who dread it so much, you avoid the dentist altogether, even though you may have a serious dental issue that needs attention. Fear not. Sedation dentistry makes it possible for those with dental anxiety to have a relaxing and anxiety-free experience. There are several types of sedation dentistry, but intravenous sedation provides the deepest relaxation.
