Care for Anxious and Fearful Patients

Yes.  A fear of the dentist is one of the most common forms of anxiety, and we understand that it may be difficult for you to build up the courage to come in for an appointment.  Dr. Wahlers and our entire staff are trained to deal with dental anxiety and can work with you to get you past your fears.  On our website, you can read through numerous five star reviews that attest we are kind, welcoming people who truly care for our patients.  We love when our anxious patients tell us after their appointments are over that they had a great experience, and it was not at all what they had been expecting.  If you are nervous about visiting the dentist, we welcome you to come in and meet us!

Your comfort is incredibly important to us. We deeply believe that dental treatment should never be painful or uncomfortable, and we will always take every step possible to make sure that you feel no pain.

In just about every treatment situation, there is a way to completely eliminate pain from the procedure. We will discuss your options with you ahead of time so that you know what to expect during your treatment.

At Wahlers Family Dentistry, we use techniques that often result in patients asking, “Did you just give me an injection? I didn’t feel a thing!”

Many patients avoid seeing the dentist because of fears that their treatment will hurt. We have helped many anxious and worried patients discover that dentistry can be comfortable and easy. We take great pride in the number of patients who we’ve converted from fearful into confident!

If you’ve been putting off treatment because of any type of anxiety, embarrassment, or concern, please give us a call and let us know what is up. We are happy to talk with you to create a treatment plan that fits your unique needs and helps you feel good about the care you are receiving.
