I wanted to take a moment to talk with you about Dental Anxiety. As our patients trust us with their dental stories, it never ceases to amaze me how common this problem is. As a guy that suffered throughout my life with Dental Anxiety I’ve made it my mission as a Cosmetic Dentist to change the perception that people have of dentistry.
I think my patients appreciate that I have worked so hard to train my team and provide an exceptional experience each time they come into the office. Having an experienced team is key to be sure that patients have a great dental experience. I can’t do it alone, the team around me has to understand the importance of making each patient have an exceptional experience.
All of the things we do for our patients, massage therapy, movie glasses, and aromatherapy are all done to change the way our patients view the dental office. When I think back on the dental offices of old, I think about the smells, and the sounds, and of course the shots (that never seemed to get you completely numb). Now we use techniques that have changed all that. Going to the dentist is like spending time at the spa, it’s a time to be pampered and relax. It is not unusual for our patients to ask if they can stay, even after their appointment is over. Now that is the new face of cosmetic, implant, and restorative dentistry.
