Ways to help with Dental Anxiety

It’s not uncommon to be afraid of going to a dental office. But sometimes, it is necessary to go to the dentist, whether it be because of pain or for a cavity. So what do you do? Here are some tips that can help reduce your dental anxiety and make your visit a little less intimidating.


  • Let us know!

We are able to help you more when we know 🙂


  • Breathing exercises.
    Slowing your breathing and keeping track of your breathing pattern can help.


  • Distractions.

At our office we have a TV in every room with access to both Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. During your treatment, please feel free to let us know if there’s anything you’d like to watch to keep distracted.


  • Ask for breaks.

Don’t hesitate to ask for breaks. Taking breaks during the procedure can help manage your anxiety and make the treatment seem more manageable.


We hope these tips can help you a bit during your visit with us or any dental office.
