Easing Dental Anxiety in Grand Rapids, MI
Dental anxiety is an extremely widespread issue, and we understand that at Woodmeadow Dentistry. Our dentists recognize this fact and subscribe to the philosophy that the patient, You, are always in control.
Some people deal with intense anxiety in their day-to-day lives. Others find themselves only experiencing anxiety in conjunction with dental visits. Whatever your situation, you will always be respected at Woodmeadow Dentistry.
We realize that anticipated pain or discomfort is only one trigger of dental anxiety. Other possible triggers include the sound of drills, the sight of equipment, and even certain smells. We do our best to minimize such triggers and always use sufficient pain control. In fact, we pride ourselves on mitigating dental anxiety and even have sedation options available. There are different ways in which we can modify how we treat patients that help alleviate anxiety and help get the treatment that is right for them.
It’s incredibly unfortunate when people delay or forgo dental care due to anxiety. We ask that you talk to us about your anxiety, your triggers, and your comfort level so that we can help. In our many years of experience, we’ve seen it all. You’ll find no judgment here – only compassion and care.
