Afraid of the Dentist

Our modern techniques, non-invasive dental technology, and gentle sedation methods will help you bravely overcome your fears and obstacles to having a confident, beautiful smile.

We put patient care and comfort as our top priorities. One of the things we hear from our patients is about dental anxiety. We understand! Dental anxiety is a real problem that needs to be addressed.

Dental anxiety prevents patients from getting the dental care they need, so our primary goal is to help patients overcome it. Dr. Volker takes your comfort seriously – and so does the entire team. We’re experts in helping our patients manage their anxiety by preparing them for their follow-up appointments, taking the time to explain everything, and answering all their questions. This is what you can expect from us. Our goal is to help you feel comfortable and provide outstanding service.

This is especially true for our younger patients. We explain everything we’re doing to both our younger patients and their parents, so there are no surprises. The goal is to overcome any fear or anxiety they have to have a lifetime of good oral health.

To further help you have a stress-free experience, we offer several patient comforts like cozy pillows, warm blankets, your favorite shows, and sedation dentistry. Our sedation dentistry options include nitrous oxide (laughing gas), which will help you feel at ease during your visit.

With our caring dental staff, dental sedation options, and patient comforts, we’re confident you’ll have a great experience in our office.
