If you tense up just thinking about going to the dentist, you may benefit from a calm atmosphere and effective dentist-patient communication. This is what we offer at Weston Spencer DDS in La Jolla CA.
Millions of Americans stress out when they have to see the dentist. It is referred to as dental anxiety. There is a more severe form, too, called dental phobia. In both, some people would rather skip the dentist altogether rather than sit down for a checkup. The problem with that, of course, is it puts their dental health at risk.
There are lots of reasons why people develop anxiety or phobia over dental care. It often stems from a bad experience they had with a dentist as a kid. Fear of pain may be involved, as well as a fear of anesthesia’s possible side effects.
Whatever the cause, at our offices, we prioritize patient comfort and care. Other dental practices rush you through like you’re on a conveyor belt! We take the time to discuss your fears and anxieties prior to your consult. We only proceed at your own pace and with whatever procedures you’re comfortable with.
You’ll be hard pressed to find a more understanding dental team! At Weston Spencer DDS in La Jolla CA, we strive to make the dentist feel like a spa. With our amenities and anesthetic technology, your visit will be a small blip on the radar. Patients from Solano Beach, Del Mar, and Claremont come to us for general and restorative dentistry.
