I have not been to the dentist in years because I am anxious. What are my options?

Dental Anxiety | Arcadia CA Dentist

You might be surprised to learn that millions of Americans express fear and anxiety when it comes to the dentist. Dr. Kim sees this as a unique opportunity to touch the lives that need it most. With her gentle touch and kind nature, she can put even the most fearful patients at ease. Our entire team is kind and caring and will always be understanding when it comes to your anxiety.

We can help you with deep breathing techniques to help you relax. If you need something more to help you feel comfortable, we offer sedation dentistry. Oral sedation uses medication to take the edge off your anxiety. Being relaxed can help you get numb faster, avoid an active gag reflex, and sometimes even fall asleep during treatment.

Most patients who join us in our Arcadia, CA dental practice tell us that it is the most positive dental experience they have had. Our goal is always to provide you with high-quality dentistry in a comfortable and caring environment so that you feel confident when it comes to seeking the dental care you need to stay healthy.

To learn which options will work best for you, contact our dental office to schedule a consultation.
