Dealing with Dental Anxiety
80% of Americans fear going to the dentist. Unfortunately, avoiding the dentist often results in deteriorated dental health—tooth decay and gum disease, for instance. But there’s no reason to compromise your dental health any longer because Fife Dental Care offers a better—anxiety-free and virtually pain-free—dental experience.

Dentistry without the Fear
Fife Dental Care provides a wide range of restorative and cosmetic dentistry services, but what makes the dental care we offer different is our approach. Your comfort and safety are our top priorities. Our staff will do everything they can to help you relax—get you tinted glasses or a blanket, find a distracting movie, even help you with meditative breathing exercises.
If you experience more severe dental phobia, oral conscious sedation dentistry may be needed to ensure an anxiety-free visit. During your initial consultation, Dr. Fife will review your medical history and ask questions to learn more about your dental phobia. He will discuss your options for sedation dentistry and help you choose the best method for your procedure.
Dentistry without the Pain
Whether or not you opt for oral sedation dentistry, all patients are given adequate amounts of numbing agents to ensure a virtually pain-free visit. If at any time during your procedure you feel uncomfortable, please tell Dr. Fife or one of the assistants. They may administer additional numbing agents and/or make other adjustments to ensure your comfort.
Have a Better Dental Experience
At Fife Dental Care, we do not take a one-size-fits-all approach to patient comfort. To ensure anxiety-free and virtually pain-free dentistry, we start by listening. We take the time to understand your dental health needs, your fears and your concerns. We will create a dental care plan that includes the restorative and/or cosmetic treatments you need and the accommodations that will keep you comfortable for the duration of your visit.
