Thousands of Americans admit to feeling nervous, scared and have dental anxiety. There is nothing to worry about if you visit a specialist at New Image Dental. Most dental procedures are not painful! We understand how intimidating it can be to visit the dentist, thus we make our patients feel as comfortable as possible during any exam or procedure.
Fear of the dentist is so common that it has a name – odontophobia.
How to Feel more comfortable
You can take steps to make yourself feel more at ease and relaxed. A few tips we recommend if you have a fear of the dental office or procedure.
Early Morning Appointment
Get an early morning dental appointment. This way you will not have to spend your entire day thinking about what is going to happen.
Bring a Friend
You can always ask a friend to accompany you for moral support. They will not be allowed to sit in with you during your procedure but knowing that they are right outside will help you relax. It is very common to also bring a relative for moral support. We see many patients who are afraid of visiting a dentist and the reason our motto is that we ‘Cater to Cowards’. We will make you forget your dentist fears.
Staff in our office are trained in how to make children and adults feel more relaxed and comfortable in a dental environment. Let us know that you feel anxious about dental procedures, and we will do our best make you feel comfortable.
