Dr. Stone's Office

What if I'm afraid of the dentist?

If you’re feeling apprehensive about dental visits, we can help. Your comfort is our top priority, and if you’re feeling stressed about your treatment, we need to address your concerns. You can be confident knowing that we’ve helped many nervous patients receive comfortable dental care.

First, we'll numb the area to be treated so you will not feel anything. Dr. Stone uses special techniques to ensure that your injection is as comfortable is possible. For kids, we just take our time and make it a point not to push them if they’re not ready for treatment. If your child has difficulty sitting still for appointments, we’ll refer you to one of the top pediatric dentists in the area who is better equipped to handle your children’s needs.

If you suffer from significant anxiety, our doctors can also talk to you about a mild sedative that you take before you arrive for your appointment. Just take the medication about an hour before your appointment, and you'll arrive at our office feeling calm and relaxed. When you get here, we'll help you de-stress with our comfortable massage chair and pillows and blankets.

We urge you not to put off important treatment due to anxiety and worry. Please contact our Lead dental office, and we will be happy to answer any questions you have about our stress-free dental treatment.
