Reducing Dental Anxiety

February 13, 2022 by Joann Miller


About ten percent of all adults in America are believed to have some level of dental phobia. The stress caused by the sights, smells, and sounds of a dental office may cause more anxiety for some patients than they can handle. In fact, of all the phobias, dental anxiety is considered to be one of the most common fears. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), almost 25 percent of Americans avoid the dentist because of dental anxiety.

Dr. Miller and our staff are compassionate and caring and are dedicated to making every dental visit as pleasant an experience as possible. While some patients have their own methods of minimizing dental anxiety, our office specializes in the art of reducing dental anxiety. Our office emphasizes stress reduction for patience, including having constant communications so patients know what is being done, using the most effective pain reduction techniques available, creating a soothing atmosphere, and being sensitive to the needs of our patients.

We proactively work to make every visit more relaxing for patients so they can get the dental care they need with the least amount of anxiety.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
