There’s No Need to Fear the Dentist

Does the idea of visiting the dentist fill you with dread? You’re far from alone. Some estimates say that up to 20% of adults experience some form of dental anxiety. The severity of this fear can of course vary from person to person, ranging from mild fits of nerves to crippling anxiety. Different dentists take varying approaches to ensure that their patients are comfortable during treatment. At Wooddell & Passaro in Davidsonville, MD, we believe in the power of education to put our patients at ease.

Patient Education

Many fears are based in a fear of the unknown. Dental anxiety is no different. The dentist’s office is a strange environment that many people associate with discomfort. For this reason, we try to educate our patients so that the dentist doesn’t seem so mysterious. Our first goal is to make sure our patients understand the importance of maintaining routine dental care. With regular dental maintenance, many people can avoid the painful procedures that cause so much fear. If you do need a more complex treatment, we take the time to carefully explain each step of the procedure to take away the mystery.

At Wooddell & Passaro there is no reason to fear the dentist, because the quality of our care is simply the best. We take a personalized approach, getting to know our patients and their needs, so that we can make them feel as comfortable as possible.
