It’s common for patients to have a fear of the dentist office and in this blog, I want to tell you some tips on how to overcome your fear of the dentist office. First things first is to admit to your dentist that you have a fear. Let our office know when you call to set up your appointment so the staff is aware and they can make your visit enjoyable. Our amazing dentists will listen to your questions and concerns and help you overcome any fears you may have so that you are comfortable at our Center City office.
By discussing your fear with your dentist, they will work with you to make your experience as comfortable and relaxed as possible. The patient is always in control of what is happening to them at our office. When the dentist knows what is making you fearful, they can work with you and do treatments and procedures that have the lowest possible anxiety associated with them so you are comfortable the entire time. Overcoming this fear has to be on a step by step basis so the patient can slowly overcome their distress associated with dental offices.
Another way to overcome the fear of the dentist is to work with your dentist to come up with a plan for your treatment. Talk with them and set up an agreement that will allow you take as much time that you need so your fear will slowly disappear. By doing this you are not being rushed into anything you’re not ready for. Our doctors understand that patients can get fearful at times during their appointment, so by making a specific plan with your dentist will help you overcome that anxiety and or fear you may have.
