No matter the cause, we want to help you feel comfortable at our office. We’ll do all we can to make sure you can get the treatment you need with confidence.
Common reasons for dental anxiety include…

How does dental anxiety affect oral health?
While dental anxiety in and of itself will not give you a cavity, it doesn’t mean that you won’t eventually develop one because of dental anxiety. We’ve worked with many patients over the years who have avoided treatment or even a routine exam due to dental anxiety. When this happens, problems build and issues only develop further, harming your oral health and leading to more advanced forms of treatment.

If you are experiencing dental anxiety, let our team know that you are nervous either prior to your appointment or on the day of your visit.
