Tips for dealing with dental fear:

  • Listen to music or an audiobook during your treatment
  • Ask question. Ask your dentist about all aspects of your treatment, so you get a better understanding of what to expect.
  • Bring a friend. If there is someone you can count on to help you feel at ease, bring them to your appointment for support.
  • Consider sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry may be utilized to help you feel at ease and comfortable throughout your treatment.

We take the time to educate our patients about all aspects of their treatment to ensure they are well informed and comfortable with their plan. Our Florence dental office is equipped with the latest technology and amenities needed to help you feel at ease during your visit.
