It’s been several years since I have been to the dentist. Am I going to get yelled at?
Yelling at our patients is not our style! Excellent dental care is all about teamwork—and you are part of our team. You will be treated with compassion and understanding—regardless of when you last had a dental appointment. We will be very happy to see you!
If anxiety about the dentist is what has kept you away, be sure to let us know that when you are making your appointment. There are a lot of things we can do to make your visit here as comfortable as possible, including the use of nitrous oxide. We appreciate having the opportunity to talk to you and help ease your mind prior to receiving treatment.
You’ll want to be prepared to provide a thorough medical history at your initial appointment. Make sure we are aware of any chronic conditions you might have. If you are on any medications, we need to know that as well.
Be sure to be honest with us about your habits—even if they are not healthy ones. Even if you are a smoker or you drink a lot of soda, you will not get a lecture. Knowing these details helps us more effectively create a treatment plan that is right for you. The most important thing is that you are taking a step to getting your oral health back on track!
