Dental Phobia Keeping You From Dental Health?

blog-dental-fear21Are you afraid to see the dentist? Many people are afraid of the unknown. Dental phobia can be one of those unknowns and is incredibly common with estimates that it affects between 13% to 24% of people around the world. Fear of visiting the dentist means different things to different people. Maybe it’s the thought that the treatment will be painful. It might be simply that you haven’t seen a dentist in years and are embarrassed by your teeth. Whatever the reason, dental health is crucial to your overall health. Many Americans are at risk of gum disease and early tooth loss – conditions that can affect your physical, social, and mental health.

If it has been a while since you have seen a dentist, make it a point to schedule an appointment soon. Dr. Kelley understands your fears. On your first visit, the goal is to calm your fears, perform an exam, and make you feel as comfortable as possible. We will then discuss with you the results of the exam and the recommended dental services. When considering treatment, patients are clearly presented with pros, cons, and all available options.

Our staff at Dennis E. Kelley, DDS is happy to offer dental services to you and your entire family. Only necessary procedures are recommended. In other words, no one is pressured with “up selling” like many chain dental practices.

When our patients require dental care, we offer a wide range of services to meet the needs of every member of the family. We are always available to answer questions about your dental health and about the services we provide for your treatment.

We are accepting new patients! Give us a call today at 317-897-3500.
