Caring for Your Unique Needs


We want to care for you as a whole person. Please tell us if you have any of the following concerns – or others – that we need to be aware of. Please know that we value you as a person and will never judge you or make you feel uncomfortable or awkward about your condition or history. We’re here to help you move forward, not dwell on the past.

  • I have a strong gag reflex
  • Lying in the dental chair makes me feel out of control
  • I am nervous that I’ll be judged because I have not visited a dentist in a long time
  • My main concern is pain control
  • My teeth are sensitive
  • The dental hook that probes for cavities makes me nervous
  • I don’t like the sounds of dental tools
  • Please don’t use cotton in my mouth
  • I don’t know much about dental care, so I need education and instruction
  • My time is very limited, so please don’t make me wait
