Fear of the Dentist – Sedation Dentistry Mountain View
Helping patients with dental phobia overcome fear of the dentist
At the dental office of Mountain View Dentist Dr. Thomas Farris, our caring dental professionals often help patients who have dental anxiety, or have a fear of the dentist. A patient’s fear of dentist offices or general dental phobia may stem from many sources: a bad early childhood experience, general fear of pain, and more. Our Mountain View Dentist Dr. Farris is highly trained and experienced in helping patients overcome their fear of the dentist to get their oral health back on track.
A popular term today is sedation dentistry, but at the dental practice of Dr. Thomas Farris, our caring team have many treatment options to comfort patients that may not require full sedation.
But don’t take our word for it. Below is a message we received from an actual patient of our Mountain View Dental Practice, highlighting his experience and how our team helped him overcome his fear of the dentist
