Because we have offered sedation dentistry we see a lot of people who really, really do not like going to the dentist. Many of them have not walked through the door of a dental office in years.
Fear and anxiety often play a big role in their avoiding dental care, but after a while embarrassment is likely to set in. When they are finally ready or have a dental emergency and come in, many actually try to apologize for the condition of their teeth.
There is no need to apologize or feel ashamed. We know that the condition of your teeth does not reflect who you are. It simply means something got in the way of your taking care of yourself.
Once our patients get to know us, they realize that we are not going to judge them. We appreciate their courage in coming in and focus on helping them with their dental needs.
We know that by taking care of their oral health they will be improving their medical health, as well. Dental conditions and oral bacteria have been linked to diseases like diabetes, cancer, erectile dysfunction, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and more. Our goal is to help all of our patients stay healthy, happy, and smile more often.
If you are one of those people who have been avoiding dental care, we want you to know that you deserve to be respected and cared for in a compassionate way.
Our team is known to be gentle, caring, and dedicated to excellence. Dr. Smith is experienced at almost all dental procedures so referrals to specialists are seldom needed. You can trust that his dental work will look good, feel good, and last a long time.
Now is a great time to take that first step towards a healthy mouth. Just imagine how proud you will be of yourself and your new smile.
