Why your Dentist could be Among your Favorite People
- Posted on: Jan 30 2017
Sad as it is, there are millions of people who make statements such as “I hate seeing the dentist!”, or sigh in protest when the time comes for their routine checkup and cleaning. The dental team in our Ardmore dental office know that approximately 75% of American patients experience some degree of anxiety when they need dental care. So it’s not so much that people actually don’t like their dentist as a person, but that they are frightened of what they may hear or experience under the care of this professional.
Here, we will look at a few of the reasons why you might change your view of dentistry.
No pain, no gain? Not in our office! As much as some people may make it sound, dental care is designed to help you, not hurt you. In addition to being friendly and gentle during exams and restorative or cosmetic procedures, Dr. Marshall’s value of patient comfort is also seen in the options she offers for pain free dentistry, including anti-anxiety medication.
Trust Your Dentist
One bad experience is the exception, not the rule. It’s unfortunate but understandable. A single bad experience with a dentist can leave a bad taste in your mouth for the rest of your life. The fact is, it can take some effort to find the right dentist for your needs. We invite you to get to know Dr. Marshall and our team, and contact us with your questions prior to your visit.
Dental care is for your mouth and much more. Research continues to show a direct correlation between oral health and the health of the heart and other systems in the body. The heart, in particular, may be affected by the presence and severity of gum disease, a progressive condition closely monitored through routine exams.
De-Stress with Dr. Marshall
Your dentist is there when you need her. To prevent dental conditions would be our greatest achievement. We know that this may not always be possible, and that some patients may require prompt care for an urgent problem. Whether you have lost a crown or have damaged a tooth, the stress you feel can be eased knowing that your trusted dentist will see you right away.
