When most people think about dental comfort, they think about sedation dentistry or nitrous oxide. While these two things are part of dental comfort, there are some other things that need to be considered in order to make your experience with us the absolute best and the most comfortable and anxiety-free experience it can be.
Let’s discuss a few things that will also help you to feel more comfortable at the dentist.
Knowing Your Doctor Can Help With Your Experience and Comfort
One of the things which can help provide an anxiety-free experience in the dental office is to develop a good relationship with your doctor. Many people complain that their doctor doesn’t listen to them or is concerned about how they feel. That’s not the case here in our office.
We endeavor to form long-lasting and mutual relationships with our patients. We want them to communicate with us and let us know about any concerns they may have. We want them to ask questions and have a full understanding of any treatment they may be about to receive.
We have found that when our patients are comfortable with us, then their treatment goes much easier and they feel better about coming to the dentist. So don’t hesitate to get to know your doctor.
Get To Know Your Hygienist
Most people that come into our office spend more time with the dental hygienist then they do the doctor. The hygienist is the one who normally cleans your teeth, examines you for signs of oral diseases such as gingivitis, and provides other preventative dental care. They also can help educate you on ways to improve and maintain good oral health.
Our hygienists endeavor to get to know each patient on a personal level. This allows them to provide better care by taking care of you on a regular basis.
If you have questions about your oral health, then ask your hygienist. They will be glad to answer your questions and help you get a good understanding of your oral health in any treatment you may need.
Make Sure You Understand The Office Financial Policies
One of the things that can cause anyone some anxiety is getting a bill or unexpected invoice and not understanding what it was for or how your insurance works. Dental financing is a source of stress for most people.
That’s why it’s important for you to understand the financial policies of the office and get help ahead of time. One of our patient coordinators will be glad to help you get an understanding of each of our financial policies and help you understand what your insurance will pay and what it will not pay.
You may need assistance with dental financing. We will be glad to assist you by pointing you in the right direction to a financing solution that is just right for you.
These are just three things you can do to help make your dental experience in our office is anxiety-free as possible. Our goal is to work with you so that you can get the dentistry you need in the easiest way possible.
If you have questions, give us a call today. We will be glad to help you.
