It’s Time to Let Go of Your Dental Fear

Dental fear, anxiety, or phobia — whatever name you give it, some people have a legitimate fear of seeing the dentist or having their teeth cleaned. These feelings should be taken seriously not only by you, the patient, but your dentist needs to understand how uncomfortable you are feeling too. It’s the first step toward how we conquer your dental anxiety in Lake Oswego once and for all. It’s important to find a dentist like Dr. Dose who understands what you’re feeling and knows how to make you feel comfortable and cared for.

What Types of Anesthesia Are Available?

The clinical name for dental fear is called odontophobia. It’s characterized by “persistent, unrealistic, and intense fear of a specific stimulus, leading to complete avoidance of the perceived danger,” according to the National Institutes of Health.

We want you to know that our office is here to listen to your concerns and work as a professional dental partner who can help you overcome these dental fears and anxieties so that you can enjoy living life with a healthy, confident smile and without dental fear.
