Previous Negative Experiences or Unsympathetic DentistsMany patients come to us with stories of uncomfortable dental procedures they have received in the past, or share their fear of needles with us. Many of these negative experiences could have been avoided by providers taking the time to make patients feel comfortable or by fully explaining procedures. We want to assure you that we will always ask you questions to help understand your fears and concerns before treatment. You will always feel better after dental conditions are treated, but we never try to rush our patients through procedures or put them in uncomfortable situations. We respect that it is your smile, your health and your choice.
Embarrassment Fear of Dental Procedures
EmbarrassmentMany patients who have been unable to receive regular oral care for many years tell us they are too embarrassed to see a dentist because of past experiences with providers ridiculing or belittling them. We know that time slips by quickly, and before you know it, years have gone by since your last dental visit. I am always so glad to see patients who have missed dental appointments because they have chosen to come back and take steps to improve their oral health. We care about your health, and want to give you the care you deserve.
Fear of Dental ProceduresMany patients suffer from strong gag reflexes, which can trigger anxiety for dental treatment. I always take my time with patients, using certain techniques to keep them comfortable. I understand the feeling of being anxious of dental procedures, and will encourage patients wo get regular checkups to avoid gum and tooth problems before they require extensive treatments. Regular dental visits will help you avoid uncomfortable dental problems and expensive bills. I will always give you all of your options to choose from if you need dental treatment.
Gentle Dental Care: Combatting Those Fears with a Different Kind of Dentist
We Care About Your ConcernsAs your dental provider, it is important to me to hear about your past experiences so that I can make future dental visits better for you. I enjoy learning about you, and can promise you that I have heard similar concerns from many other patients. I am sympathetic to your anxieties and understand and value your decision to improve your dental health. I care about my patients, and want to give them healthy smiles for life.
We’ll Explain EverythingBefore starting treatment, I always explain the steps of the procedure, and give patients the opportunity to ask questions. I will explain everything in non-technical terms to ensure you understand everything.
Breathe a Sigh of Relief and RelaxWe try to provide a relaxing environment to improve your dental experience. We play relaxing music, offer movies or television with headphones and use aromatherapy to mask clinical smells in our offices. We also offer sedation options to ensure your comfort during your time with us.
Advanced Techniques: Comfortable Injections to Help Minimize DiscomfortWe always apply numbing gels to gums prior to injections to minimize discomfort for patients. We administer injections slowly, reducing the pressure to the tissues and making the injection as comfortable as possible. I like talking to patients during this step to distract them from the injection. My team and I go out of our way to ensure you feel at home. We take the time to understand all of your concerns because we genuinely care. Let us help improve your health with most advanced dental techniques in a soothing, relaxing environment. We are the gentle dentists in Lincoln, NE.
