What is Dental Phobia?

Millions of people have a fear and anxiety over visiting the dentist. This often begins during childhood and extends well into adulthood. If you’re petrified of visiting the dentist and find yourself forgoing care because of this care, we have many options available to you. With the help of a caring, warm environment as well as sedation dentistry, we can make your visits with us much more enjoyable.

Why might you have Dental Phobia?

Oftentimes, people begin to develop a phobia of the dentist when they are children. If you ever had a bad experience in a dental office, this only feeds into this phobia and fear.
