Dental phobia, or a fear of dental treatment or the dentist’s office, is a legitimate concern for some patients. Unfortunately, this fear can prevent them from getting the oral care they need for healthy smiles. If you or a family member suffer from dental phobia, Dr. Cory Gaunt and the team at Downriver Smiles will do everything possible to alleviate your fear and help you relax at our comfortable and welcoming dental clinic. Patients with dental phobia in Spokane are welcome at Downriver Smiles.
Many, if not most, cases of dental phobia are based on a poor previous experience at another dental clinic. This experience is forever fixed in the patient’s memory, and it colors their view of every other dental clinic, even without visiting. At Downriver Smiles, we understand this, but will still ask you to give us the benefit of the doubt and schedule a visit. Our state-of-the-art dental clinic is designed with your comfort in mind. We offer numerous comfort amenities and perks to help you relax and focus on other things while we perform pain-free dental procedures with the utmost compassion and care.
From advanced dental technology to our calm, friendly chairside manner and more, we do everything possible to provide a soothing, pain-free dental care experience that can change your perception of oral care for a lifetime. We know that is quite a boast – but schedule a visit, and let us prove it to you!
Are You Afraid of the Dentist?
Are you afraid of the dentist? We understand and sympathize. Calmly allowing a stranger to stick their hands and strange tools into your mouth is not necessarily a natural exercise! We get it! We also know that avoiding dental care can be disastrous for your oral and overall health. Let us help you relax and provide superior-level dental care in a comforting environment.
We have sedation dentistry options to help you relax, comfy blankets and pillows for your relaxation in the dental chair, wireless headphones to allow you to enjoy music or TV during your treatment and more. We strive to provide a “dental spa” experience that promotes relaxation and confidence at every visit.
Let Downriver Smiles help you overcome your very real fear of the dentist. Schedule an exam and cleaning at our Spokane dental clinic today, and be sure to tell a team member that you suffer from dental phobia. We will be prepared to help you relax and receive the best dental care in Spokane.
