For many people — as many as 15 percent of Americans — fear of the dentist is so severe it prevents them from getting the dental care they need! At Lakeside Dentistry, we see it as part of our job to remove barriers from getting great care, and that includes helping patients overcome dental anxiety.
Sometimes, all it takes is a little bit of reassuring the patient it’s going to be OK, Dr. Lucy Gores said.
“If they need something else, like nitrous oxide, that’s always available,” she said. “But just being there and being a friend — honestly, that’s usually all they need.”
