At McIntyre D.D.S., P.C., we understand how nervous some patients get when going to the dentist. We take special care in accommodating these patients to make their experience at our facility as easy as it can possibly be. Our goal is a positive experience for every patient, every time.
The best thing to do if you’re nervous about your trip to the dentist is call ahead and express your concerns to Julie, our dental anxiety coach. She will answer any questions you might have, as well as address concerns. Most often, we find that if the patient knows what to expect when they visit, it will greatly reduce anxiety.
Our facility utilizes some industry-wide techniques that have a proven record of calming patients and getting their minds off of their procedures. Below are the methods we most commonly use:
- Ambient Lighting
- Stress-Management Techniques
- One-on-One Coaching
Even, Stuffed Animals– Since our practice handles all members of the family, we provide any children who need special attention because of anxiousness the option of a stuffed animal to accompany them while the dentist works. In addition, our staff has years of experience in pediatric dentistry and they fully understand the special attention children need, especially if it’s a first visit. We want them to look forward to going to the dentist.
