Millions of people avoid or procrastinate going to the dentist because of dental fear. Usually they have a history of some traumatic experience in a dentist’s chair. Sometimes, they just don’t get numb with conventional techniques. If this is you, Dr. Sherly understands, and he can help you.
Cater-to-Cowards Dentist Techniques
If you ask Dr. Sherly’s patients and staff about him, they will tell you that he is kind, soft spoken, and compassionate. His gentle manner, in itself, is calming for anxious patients. In advance of your treatment, he will listen to you to understand what makes you anxious about dental appointments. He and his staff will be sensitive to your anxiety. They will never tease you about your fear.
Sometimes sitting for long periods in a waiting area or treatment room can increase anxiety. We are punctual. When it’s time for your appointment, we are ready to get you comfortably seated in a treatment room and begin your treatment. While you’re receiving treatment, you can watch a television program to divert your attention from the sound of dental work.
If necessary, you will be given a mild anti-anxiety medication to take an hour before you come to our office for your appointment. During your dental procedure, Dr. Sherly pays attention to your facial expressions and body language to determine your level of anxiety. Be confident that you can raise your hand if you need to take a break in the procedure, and Dr. Sherly will stop until you are ready to proceed. You will never be pushed into having treatment that makes you uncomfortable.
Many patients are fearful of injections. Dr. Sherly uses an effective topical anesthetic to numb the injection area and make the injection pain free. And it works. So do his other techniques for making your dental experience pleasant. Consider a few testimonials from our patients:
"Dr. Sherly is very thorough with his examinations and very much painless. I highly recommend his services."
"I never liked going to the dentist and would often wait years between appointments, but not anymore. Dr. Sherly and his staff are the greatest. For the first time in my adult life, I will go to the dentist every six months, as I should. Everyone on staff is professional, compassionate and tends to your individual needs."
"I have a history of bad dental experiences, so I am a very tough critic. My experience at Dr. Sherly’s office has been extremely positive and pleasant. The office staff is always friendly and caring. Dr. Sherly is very knowledgeable and competent. I don’t mind going to the dentist anymore."
For some patients, anxiety is greatly reduced after a complimentary consultation. At no cost, you will have a few minutes to see our office, meet Dr. Sherly, and discuss your concerns. When you’re comfortable, you can schedule an appointment for an exam. Contact our office at (+1)855-311-3573 to schedule an appointment, or request an appointment online.
