If you are:
1. You are not alone.
2. We can guarantee your fear is logical and justified, no matter what anyone has said.
3. The good news is your fear does not have to continue!
I have found the above true because if you fear the dentist you almost certainly have had bad experiences. Many times these bad experiences have occurred a number of times and in addition most often you either experienced that other dentist’s caused you pain as well or assumed that other dentists would be the same.
As a dentist who as a child feared the dentist and associated pain with every dentist I visited, I decided to become a dentist because I reasoned if this was the competition (dentists causing pain) then I certainly could improve on this for my patients.
Beginning from the day I began dental school I looked for ways to make patient’s more comfortable particularly in making anesthetic injections pain free. Today there is no reason for you or anyone to suffer pain in the dental office. With the use of needleless injectors (the syrijet), the newest anesthetics, carpule warmers to make the solutions warm, STA (Single Tooth Anesthesia) and the Wand to numb only one tooth and to make the injection itself almost undetectable, Massage chairs and Nitrous oxide to relax you or any patient who is tense, earphones and an I-pad with Pandora so that you can choose whatever music you like, your visit to the dentist can be a very positive and totally comfortable experience. Of course most importantly there needs to be a dentist and a staff that is empathetic and that truly cares about you. At Wilton Dental Associates we take this very seriously and that is why your comfort is our first priority.
