Scared of Dentists?
At East Side Dental we really care about our patients’ comfort
Patients who avoid dentist
Many patients are fearful of dental treatment and a few try to avoid dentists altogether. A mere appointment triggers an “anticipatory anxiety.” There are a few who fear needles and drilling, unaware of the advancement in dentistry. Such patients are more likely to cancel their treatments at the last minute. This postponement of treatment leads to poor oral health.
While some patients avoid dentist due to fear, others avoid because they are embarrassed of their poor oral health. Dr. Ajay and Dr. Jenny are very supportive to all their patients and puts them at ease by:
- Offering a step-by step explanation of each procedure
- Explaining what the patient will feel
- Frequently asking the patient for permission to continue, usually with hand signals
Apart from that our doctors friendly and calm demeanor puts the most anxious patients at ease. Plus, the support staff make sure that your visit is a pleasant one by assisting and reassuring you during your treatment.
