Dental anxiety is common and not something you should feel ashamed of. At Smiles Dental, we‚Äôve worked hard to provide an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation. There are several proven methods to overcome dental anxiety, and we employ them at our offices. These are just a few of the innovative approaches to care you can expect at our office.
Sit Back, Relax, & Enjoy
Because we know the dental experience isn‚Äôt typically pleasant for everyone, we provide a cozy environment in our offices. You‚Äôll feel the Smiles Dental difference as soon as you walk through the door. Pleasant lighting, blankets, pillows, and iPads are all available to you while you wait for your treatment. Many of our dental rooms have a TV, so you can binge watch your favorite show while having your teeth cleaned. We promise the time will fly.
We pride ourselves on valuing transparency and communication, and we love questions. We‚Äôll answer any question you may have about your treatment and employ the ‚Äúshow, tell, do‚Äù method for anyone who may be nervous. This means we‚Äôll slowly walk you through what you can expect and make sure you‚Äôre completely comfortable with what‚Äôs happening before we proceed. A lot of fear arises from what is unknown, so we want you to know what to expect.
Take a Look
If you have any anxiety about a procedure or cleaning as it‚Äôs being done, we‚Äôre happy to show you what we‚Äôre doing. This helps to ease stress of the unknown. We‚Äôll show you through our intraoral camera exactly what we‚Äôre working on so you know you‚Äôre in good hands.
Taking the Edge Off
We offer gentle sedation techniques to those who need an extra bit of calm. Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) is a safe solution to jitters. It wears off quickly and won‚Äôt leave you feeling groggy.
