Care for Anxious and Fearful Patients

Dental anxiety is very real, and it’s very common. If you’ve been putting off routine dental care because of fear or worry, you are not alone.

We want to assure you that even if you are fearful, we can help you get the care you need to stay healthy. At Wahlers Family Dentistry, you never have to be worried or embarrassed about your situation – even if you haven’t been to see a dentist in a while.  We will never make you feel ashamed of the condition of your mouth or the anxiety you may be experiencing.

 

Has It Been a While Since You’ve Seen a Dentist?

Plenty of people have every intention of scheduling a dental visit but then either don’t make the appointment or cancel it. Anxiety, memories of a bad experience in the past, embarrassment over the condition of your teeth, and even worry about how much it will cost can all play a role.

We’ll help you get back on track. Whatever your concerns are, tell us about them. We’ll listen and work closely with you to help you find a way to get past them. There is always a solution to your issues, and we can help you find it.

Cost is a concern for many people, and this is understandable. We’ll look at all your options and let you know what to expect up front. Some surprises can be fun, but financial surprises certainly aren’t!
