For the most part, people don’t like to discuss their fears, but some fears must be addressed. Dental anxiety keeps a great number of people from the dental care they need and deserve. If you suffer from dental anxiety, stress, or phobia, I understand and respect your fears.
I’m Dr. James DeFinnis, a sedation dentist at Back Mountain Dental in Trucksville, PA. In addition to being trained and experienced in administering various levels of dental sedation, I’ve studied the emotional aspect of dental fear. Over the years, I have helped many of my patients overcome their fears and enjoy improved oral health, overall health, and quality of life. My team is also trained and experienced at helping fearful patients feel comfortable, confident, and well cared for in our office.
There are four issues that are very important to people with dental anxiety.
- Going at your own pace
- Having control over treatment options
- My understanding of your concerns
- Your understanding about options for sedation
Before committing to any treatment, it’s important that you and I meet and discuss these issues. To help you, we must establish a good relationship with one another. At our meeting, I want to answer all of your questions and hear about your concerns, experiences, and expectations.
Feel free to call my office to set up a convenient time for us to meet, or you can email me, if you prefer, at email@example.com. Located in Trucksville, Back Mountain Dental caters to patients from Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, and across the great State of Pennsylvania.
