While we call Dr. Dennis a cater to cowards dentist, we know that being afraid of the dentist doesn’t make you a coward. There are many reasons people have for being afraid, but the important point to note is that you are not alone. One in three Americans suffer from some form of dental phobia, from moderate to severe. And our cater to cowards approach will provide you with gentle care backed up with pain-free dentistry, so you can experience all the benefits of regular dental care.
What is a Cater to Cowards Dentist?
The foundation of our practice is pain-free dentistry. If you’ve ever had trouble getting numb, or worse, had a dentist begin work before you were completely numb, you need not fear. Dr. Susan Dennis is also a fearful patient, so she knows what how you feel. She has a 100 percent success rate of getting her patients numb, and you won’t feel any pain while she is administering the novocaine. Many of her patients who were fearful now enjoy their visits.
Providing a Calming Environment
Starting with your first approach to our practice, you’ll notice a calming, peaceful environment. And if you’ve ever been judged, teased, or talked down to because of your fear or the condition of your teeth, you can rest assured; that won’t happen here. Instead, we’ll give you a warm and inviting welcome and treat you with the respect you deserve for venturing past your fear to give dental care another try.
Sedation Is Available
If you still feel very anxious about visiting us, our “cater to cowards” approach extends to providing you with two forms of sedation. Nitrous oxide is often relaxing enough to help fearful patients, and if you feel you need something stronger, we can provide a mild anti-anxiety medication for you to take before you arrive. And Dr. Dennis will carefully monitor your facial expressions and body language during treatment. You can be assured that you can raise your hand and stop at any time. Dr. Dennis will not proceed until you feel comfortable.
