If you feel concerned about going to the dentist, you are not alone. Dental anxiety is tremendously common and can be assisted. Here at Ohio Urgent Dental Care in Grove City, Ohio, we take pride in giving you high-quality care and are glad to talk to you and work with your dental anxiety. That is why we are providing you with these tips—so you can feel more comfortable in our care.

The first thing to recall when it comes to the dentist is to be honest. If you are feeling anxious or uncomfortable, it’s ok. Be sure you talk to Drs. Huber, Pelkey, and Shumway or a member of the team about your concern, so we can help you feel as comfortable and safe as possible.

One way to find comfort at the dentist is to wear headphones. Wearing headphones while listening to music can make many people feel more calm and relaxed while sitting in the dental chair. Another thing you can do is to work out a signal system with your dentists. Raise your hand or tap your chair if you need a pause while you are being examined. This will help your doctors know your feelings while helping you feel in control of the situation to help keep you relaxed.

Our team wants you to feel safe and relaxed in our care. That is why if you feel nervous about coming in you should tell us right away so we can work with you. If you are ready to come in for a dental appointment, please call us at 614-875-7070. Our professional dental team is always happy to help you in any way we can.
