I am afraid of the Dentist!
Updated: May 20, 2022
Are you afraid or stressed when it comes to the dentist?
We can help. Let us know, we understand!
What are your emotions when you think about scheduling a dental appointment?
How do you feel when you walk into the reception room, with its aseptic smell and the buzz of the drill?
Either you’re shuddering right now, or you’re running your tongue across your teeth, wondering whether you’ve arranged for your next cleaning. If you’re like most of us, visualizing yourself in the dentist’s chair can make you a tad uneasy, especially if in the past you’ve experienced a root canal or had a tooth pulled.
Dr. Jeff and the staff wants patients to feel calm and relaxed. First, because they care and want you to continue taking care of your teeth. Second, your comfort makes their job a whole lot easier.
Does that mean that if you’re not nervous, you’ll receive better care than if you are? NO.
Here is something to compare that may help. Consider that dentistry is like working in the world’s tiniest garage. When a patient is anxious, another level of difficulty is added to the dentist’s work, whereas the calmer you can be—despite whatever discomfort you may be experiencing—the more you’ll optimize the outcome of your dentist’s efforts.
It is very helpful for both the client and the dentist, to be honest, and talk about your fears so they can be addressed in the most comfortable manner.
