“My hands were trembling when I picked up the phone and I was whispering prayers to myself.” These are words that came from a recent patient who called our office inquiring about sedation dentistry. Like many others, she is dental phobic. She was willing to give up her favorite foods, to stop smiling at her friends and loved ones and to suffer in silence. Anything was better than picking up the phone to schedule an appointment with a dentist.
This particular patient had lived with the pain in her mouth for decades, leaving her dentally handicapped. Why had she become so neglectful? Because she was afraid. And she’s not alone. Nearly one third of Americans are just like her.
Today, this patient has been completely restored and smiles with confidence thanks to the wonders of Sedation Dentistry, and she no longer needs to fear the dentist’s chair. And she will tell anyone she meets the same thing can happen for them.
If you’re thinking, “Sign me up!” we are ready to help you regain the confidence that comes with a healthy smile. Dr. Chen has completed special training that allows him to treat these fearful people while they are safely sedated. “By prescribing a small pill, people can now have their dental care accomplished while they are totally relaxed and absolutely comfortable.”
Dr Chen states “I have always been very sensitive to my patients with high fear and apprehension, and now I can offer them a safe and even more comfortable experience. I feel so many good people are avoiding needed care due to fear. I am looking forward to helping these people visit the dentist with this safe and wonderful technique.”
He added, “You should see the look on the faces of my patients when they complete their care and they have a healthy mouth – there aren’t words to describe it! That look is why I love sedation dentistry. I helped to change someone’s life.”
Dr Chen has received extensive training through the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation and has been certified since 2008. As always, feel free to call our office with any additional questions.
