Hospitality: Sinking Your Dental Anxiety

Dental anxiety is a condition that people suffer from in Salem, OR, and all around the world. It is the reason that many people let their oral health fall into disrepair. The fear generated when a person with dental anxiety makes a trip to the dentist often results in a doctor using sedation to deal with the anxiety by simply putting you in a state of complete relaxation. At Oregon Smile Care Center, we think that sedation has its place, but we also think that you can overcome your fear of the dentist with the help of Dr. Hanson and his hospitable staff.
That is why we don’t subscribe to the notion that dental anxiety should only be met with sedation. While in some cases we can give you a single Valium pill to ease your anxiety, we have eventually weaned many patients off needing that medication. Our method of relaxing you is by making you feel at home in our beautiful, comfortable office while being talked through procedures by our welcoming staff.
Training Our Staff To Make Your Feel Comfortable
In a great deal of cases, something that creates anxiety in some dentist’s offices is knowing that the dental staff is going to give you grief because they don’t think you’ve done a good enough job cleaning your teeth. At Oregon Smile Care Center, we assure you that we will have nothing but positive encouragement to project your way. We believe that everything can be given a positive spin, and always being positive with patients can help ease the tension during trips to the dentist.
Dr. Hanson chooses staff who will treat you like you want to be treated, and he only hires people onto his staff who have positive attitudes. Everyone on the staff believes that dental anxiety can be overcome without the use of sedation alone because making a patient comfortable is a simple action that can lower anxiety. You’ll feel like a part of our family at Oregon Smile Care Center when you trust us with your dental anxiety.
Making You Comfortable At Our Beautiful Salem, OR Office
Another way to ease the anxiety that some people feel when visiting the dentist is to provide an office that is comfortable to the point to where you’ll have no choice but to not feel anxious anymore. When you enter our waiting room, you’ll know that we operate differently at Oregon Smile Care Center than most other practices. Not only do we think that a comfortable waiting room where you are pleasantly greeted by our staff will immediately help lower your anxiety, but that comfort will carry over to our examination rooms.
Some of the things that contribute to our office being comfortable enough to help get rid of your dental anxiety include having soothing music play throughout the office, television that you can watch in the waiting room and in the exam chair, a coffee and drink station, iPads and iPods in the office for you to use, and comfortable exam chairs and exam rooms. You’ll be comfortable on your trip to Oregon Smile Care Center!
