Are dental fears keeping you from having a healthy mouth?
Are you afraid of going to the dentist?
Has it been a long time since your last dental appointment due to fear?
Do you have sensitive teeth and gums?
Are you immune to traditional methods of numbing techniques?
If you have a fear of the dentist, you are not alone. Research shows that about 50% of Americans fear the dentist. So that means there’s a good chance you’re the 1 out of 2 Americans who avoid going to the Dentist due to fear. There is hope- We’re here for you!!
One of the main reasons for dental fear is past experiences; whether it was anesthetic not working, rude/ uncaring dentist, procedure was painful, or learned fear from parents; we understand fear is fear…we can’t just snap our fingers and make it go away. We recognize that we’re taught to learn from our past so that we don’t encounter the same negative experience again. What that then translates to is: never going to the dentist till extreme pain forces you through the door.
We want to challenge you: Come in to visit us. Dr. Lopez and our team care about you. We are here to truly listen to you, make you comfortable, and give you a pleasant experience at the dentist. There seems to be a snowball effect that happens with patients who have a fear of the dentist where their fear escalates to include embarrassment. We are not here to judge you but to help you. Whether you just haven’t found the right “fit” or you need that extra TLC with Nitrous or oral sedation, we can help.
Our goal is to give you the smile you've dreamed of and deserve, while offering a unique team who is gentle and passionate about changing the stereotypical concept of fear, pain, and embarrassment that normally is thought of when you hear 'DENTIST'.
Hope to see you soon!
