Dental Phobia / Dental Anxiety

Are You Afraid Of The Dentist?

Well, you aren’t alone. There are many people who have a dental phobia and experience anxiety when visiting the dental office. We’ve seen hundreds of people like yourself who are frightened, scared or just plain nervous of being at the dentist. Our goal at Stonebrook Dental is to help you overcome your fears so that every visit — and every experience — at our office is a positive one.

What Our Patients Are Saying:
“I would like to give special mention to Pilar the hygienist who cleaned my daughter Sophie’s teeth – she is fabulous! Right away Sophie was put at ease and she was so calm! Great first experience!” — Susanne

These questions will help us narrow down why you may have a dental phobia and will allow us to help you through your first visit to our dental office:

  • Have you ever had a negative or frightening dental experience as a child or as an adult?
  • Do you feel uncomfortable when you’re not able to communicate with your dentist or hygienist while in the dental chair?
  • Do you fear pain and discomfort while at the dentist?
  • Are you afraid of dental needles and freezing?
  • Do you dislike the tastes, sounds or feel of a dental office?
  • Have other people told you about their dental experiences, which, in turn, now make you feel nervous about seeing the dentist?
  • Do you have dreams or nightmares about your teeth?
