Relieving Dental Anxiety
relaxing during your dental treatment
Dental fear is one of our biggest hurdles in dentistry. It can cause patients to avoid the dentist for years, which unfortunately causes their oral health to greatly deteriorate.
Our Pinecrest dental staff understands that going to the dentist is not the first thing on anyone’s list, but we refuse to believe the experience has to be nerve-racking or downright terrifying.
Millions of Americans suffer from dental anxiety. About 20 percent of Americans suffer dental fear, and 5 percent of that population avoid the dentist at all costs. Avoiding the dentist can create substantial and costly issues down the road. Some of our patients have dental anxiety due to a past bad experience, fear of dental pain, or even fear of being lectured.
For starters, you will not find a friendlier, more gentle, or more caring staff in the Miami area. We never lecture our patients or make them feel guilty about the condition of their oral health. We sympathize with our patients and want to find solutions that will fix their dental problems. Dr. Greenstein and his staff render safe and gentle care.
