“Many people are afraid of dentists and hate dentists. It is the most common reason why people don’t go to dentist and end up having multiple issues in their mouth. As a dentist who’s performing dental procedure on patients every day, it is easy to forget that fact. I understand that patients are afraid and try to be gentle and take time on every patients. It is not something I can do at dental offices where I have to treat large amount of patients in a limited time. That’s one of the reason why I started my own practice.
I also have Enteral Sedation Permit and can prescribe medication that can calm patient down for dental procedure. Patients can take the medication at the night before the procedure, take again 1 hour before the procedure and come to the office with someone. It requires additional time for me to monitor patients but I do not charge extra for that. I also have laughing gas (N2O) available for patients who need it.”
