We Understand Dental Anxiety

Dental professionals in the Fishers area (including the team at Pence Family Dentistry) are dedicated to oral health. Unfortunately, some individuals rarely go to the dentist. Others have the misconception that you only need to go to the dentist when you have a toothache.

In addition, there are those who have severe dental anxiety. Perhaps you fall into this category.

Dental anxiety is real, we get it.

If you are apprehensive about dental visits, here are a few counsels that may help ease you into consistent dental checkups. Certainly, enhanced oral health will elevate your quality of life.

Choose a dentist you can trust.

I understand how difficult it can be to seek dental treatment. That’s why I make sure my patients are relaxed before I examine their teeth. First, I ask you many questions. I want to get to know you and help you get to know me. Communication builds a connection. A connection leads to a trusting relationship.

The more I know about you, the easier I can help you.

Be prepared to provide me with vital information about your lifestyle and health. Many individuals are intimidated by a dentist office. Because of this, they may hesitate to disclose sensitive issues.

We are here to help, regardless of your history or oral condition.

There is nothing in your past that we haven’t dealt with. Neglecting oral health. Drug use. Eating disorders. Regardless of your history, we have helped patients with similar issues.

In order to help you, I need complete accurate information. Bring notes if you are worried that you will forget something.

Also, during treatment, tell me what you are experiencing so I can help you feel more relaxed. If we discover that you are going to need a dental procedure more extensive than filling a cavity, let’s discuss sleep dentistry.

Oral sedation is safe and effective.

The most important thing to know is that oral conscious sedation or sleep dentistry is perfectly safe. At Pence Family Dentistry, we have been providing sedation since 1985. We offer different levels of sedation and a choice of medication including oral analgesics, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation.

At Pence Family Dentistry, our friendly staff will work to make your visit as pleasant as possible.
