“Nothing personal Doc, but I HATE coming to the dentist!” 

I hear this phrase almost every day, and I understand the reasoning. It’s not everyone’s favorite place to be. That’s why I make a point to get to know my patients on a personal level. The goal is to build a trusting relationship with them as their dental care provider. If there’s trust, patients will feel less anxious while sitting in the dental chair. 

A comfortable environment helps ease anxiety, too. Patient comfort is top-of-mind at Penz Dental Care—we have a friendly staff, our waiting room feels more like a living room than a dental office, and patients always enjoy our massaging dental chairs!
