Dental Anxiety and Fear 

Because fear of dental appointments is a common cause of anxiety, our staff makes every effort to reduce anxiety, allay fears, and alleviate discomfort.  Your comfort, relaxation, and happiness are our top priority.

Some of the most common dental fears include:

  • Fear of pain
  • Fear of the dentist
  • Fear of injections
  • Fear of not becoming numb when injected with anesthetic
  • Fear of the hand piece (or the drill)
  • Fear of embarrassment about the condition of teeth
  • Fear of gagging
  • Fear of loss of control

If you have questions or concerns about how we can help you overcome anxiety and fear, please contact our office 517-393-8500.
