3 Ways We Can Ease Your Dental Anxiety

You are afraid of the dentist. You are not alone. Millions of people experience dental anxiety to one degree or another.

Our dental team in Decatur, AL knows this and understands this. We provide care to many people every day who dread sitting in our chairs. At least, they did before they came to see us.

At Charles F. Betts, Jr., DMD, Family Dentistry, we have three great ways to help you feel more at ease. Call 256-274-8680 to learn more about our approach to patient care

1. Calming Techniques

Sitting in a dental chair isn’t like sitting in your favorite recliner at home, but we can make it more cozy for you. Ask to borrow a blanket, a pillow, or both to get as comfortable as you can be. We want you to feel as relaxed as you can.

2. Personal Attention

This may be the most important thing that we can do for you. We want to get you to know our patients, so we can deliver the care that you need in a way that you prefer. Many times there are multiple solutions for dental problems, and we want you to find the right one for you. 

3. Sedation

As much as we wish our friendly approach and comfy chairs worked for everyone, we know many people need a little something more. Sedation can provide the assistance you need for worry-free, pain-free dental appointments.

You can overcome and manage your dental anxiety. We are happy to help.
