Our Philosophy on Dental Anxiety

Based on the data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, anxiety affects a significant proportion of Americans, with 27% of adults and 42% of young adults being impacted. Among the various types of anxiety in the United States, dental anxiety is one of the most prevalent. Unfortunately, this growing problem often prevents individuals from seeking the dental care they need, which can lead to more severe dental problems over time.

At our practice, we recognize the issue of dental anxiety and take active steps to help our patients overcome it. We understand that the fear of pain, negative past experiences, embarrassment over dental conditions, concerns about affordability, and general anxiety disorders can all contribute to dental anxiety. Moreover, we know that many of our patients suffer from this condition – about 70%, in fact.

If you fall into this category, our office may be the right fit for you. We are different from the vast majority of dental offices out there. Our Victorian-style 1880s home turned dental practice provides our patients with an extremely comfortable setting to receive dental care, and our welcoming and supportive staff aims to alleviate patients’ anxiety and make them feel comfortable. We provide compassionate and judgment-free care to all of our patients, regardless of their current dental state or how long it has been since they last saw a dentist. We listen to your concerns and work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that meets your specific dental health goals, timeline, and budget.

As part of our commitment to helping you overcome your anxiety and get the care you deserve, we use the latest technologies and techniques to ensure that your treatment is as comfortable as possible. From buffered anesthetic to multiple sedation options, we have the experience and mindset necessary to make even the most anxious patients feel at ease.

Our ultimate goal is to establish long-lasting relationships with our patients based on trust and mutual respect. This takes time to develop, but it is the only way that dental anxiety can truly be overcome. As a leading dental healthcare facility in the area for patients with anxiety, we pride ourselves on helping individuals overcome this challenge and find their new dental home. We look forward to the opportunity to assist you in your journey towards dental health and wellness.
