Let’s be honest: Nobody loves going to the dentist. Despite today’s dental techniques that make the experience relatively painless and efficient, most people still associate dental visits with the unpleasantness of the past.
Dental anxiety is real. Most people experience it every time they arrive at their dentist’s office. It’s just hard-wired into our systems from our past experiences.
So at McCosh Family Dentistry, we know that it’s up to us to put our patients at ease every time they arrive for an appointment. And it’s a responsibility we take seriously.
A patient who is stressed out or uptight is going to be more difficult to treat. This is true for medicine as well as dentistry. Even though most of today’s procedures are 100 percent painless, if the patient is afraid of pain then they aren’t going to have a positive experience.
But a patient who is relaxed will have a much better experience in the dentist’s chair. While they may not actually enjoy having somebody work on their teeth, at least they won’t be anxious about it. And they can walk away feeling as if they have been genuinely helped, rather than hurt.
From the moment our patients walk into our door, they are met by friendly and helpful dental workers whose sole objective is to put them at ease. We understand that when a patient has the proper state of mind, their dental experience can actually be a positive one.
Look Forward to Dental Visits
Our goal is to have most of our patients actually look forward to visiting our dental offices.
We understand that with most people we are battling against a lifetime of unpleasant memories. Yet we still strive to make each and every one of our patients feel good about visiting our offices.
Yet by treating one patient at a time with respect, kindness, and a genuine desire to provide the best quality painless dental care available anywhere, we are confident that we can eventually achieve our objective.
