Dental Care for Nervous Patients

Helping even the most anxious patients feel comfortable

It’s been reported that 1 in 4 people fear visiting the dentist. This negative association is often formed by an unfortunate childhood experience, with the distress it causes leading many people to avoid the dentist altogether. Unfortunately, avoiding the dentist for too long can greatly increase the risk of health problems like gum disease and even tooth loss.

At A J Moore & Associates Dental Practice, we understand that dental checkups can make many people feel uncomfortable – at the same time, however, a simple checkup can prevent a wealth of problems. Our team has a wealth of experience dealing with very nervous patients, and using an empathetic approach to make sure that even the most anxious patients can enjoy maintaining their oral health in an environment that they find comfortable and understanding.
