Overcoming Dental Anxiety

Almost everyone has some type of fear or anxiety when it comes to visiting the dentist. Columbia University ran a study and found that 9-15% of Americans avoid dental care due to anxiety. That’s 30-40 million people without dental care! Whether they are afraid of the tools, the sounds, the smells, the invasiveness, or the cost, people dread going to the dentist. To rid some of your anxiety and make your visit a little more relaxing, talk to your dentist and follow these tips.

  • Visit the office and talk to the staff before your first appointment – Make time to meet with the dentist before your appointment to ask questions and let them know of your fears. Dentist’s are happy to go slow with new, nervous patients.
  • Your dentist can explain the entire procedure to you beforehand – They can walk you through the procedure step-by-step and explain anything that you may have questions about.
  • Build a trusting relationship with your dentist – Find a dentist who makes you feel comfortable and at ease during your appointments. You can establish a signal with your dentist to “stop” the procedure, which puts you in control and alerts the dentist if you need a break during the appointment.

At Paradise Dental Associates, we are committed to eliminating fear and making your visit a comfortable one. We have incorporated some amazing practices into our everyday care. Upon walking in, we offer complimentary refreshments including bottled water, espresso, cappuccino, coffee or tea. We also offer a pre-appointment kit that includes a pre-pasted toothbrush and floss, so you can greet the doctor with a sense of comfort. During your visit, we also offer special amenities to help you relax. We provide warm face cloths, blankets, neck pillows, individualized radio and television entertainment, and a thermal spa heated hand treatment. This hand treatment nourishes and soothes tired, dry hands with specially formulated silk lotion and warm Mitts. We are committed to excellence while providing comprehensive care in all aspects of dentistry.

Your comfort is our comfort.

First Class Facility. Modern equipment. Professional service. This is what I have come to expect from Drs' Steve and Helyne and their entire staff.

It's the fanciest dentist I have ever been to. I really like the moisturizing heated hand treatment they offer while you're getting your teeth cleaned. They have lots of other little extras that make this place stand out above the rest. The cleaning and exam were pretty typical, but no complaints. I'm always wary of getting advice to replace fillings when they aren't bothering me, but that didn't happen.

Great experience as always!!! State of the art office with a friendly and professional staff. I would not trust any other practice with my dental care.

My first visit consisted of a consultation with Dr, Helyne Hamelburg whom I found to be very calm and relaxing as I am not a fan of any dental procedure. I will be having gum surgery in a few weeks and am actually not fearing the procedure which I have been putting off for years. Office is certainly state of the art which I had never experienced anything like it. Glad she was recommended to me by another Doctor who knew she would be a good fit for me.

The providers, hygienists, the entire staff are wonderful. I can't recommend them enough. They are efficient, courteous, and the office is inviting. I never thought I would say this about a dental office, but I get relaxed there. You get treated like your the only patient they have.
