"Coming in not only as a new patient, but a new patient in quite a bit of pain needing an extraction. I was beside myself with anxiety and pain. Dr. Fife and his whole staff were so nice and calming and got me in right away to have my procedure without anxiety. I plan on continuing to have my dental issues addressed with Dr. Fife’s office and have a happier, healthier and stress free mouth!"


Dental Phobia

Many people experience anxiety about visiting the dentist’s office, and for some patients this anxiety can translate into reluctance to pursue much-needed dental care. At Fife Dental Care, we are committed to helping our patients overcome their fears; we put our patients at the forefront everything that we do.

Do You Fear the Dentist?

If you suffer from dental phobia and anxiety, you’re not alone. However, anxiety doesn’t have to control you, and the staff at Fife Dental Care can help you combat your fears. Here are a few of the common fears our patients have shared with us, and ways we work to keep our patients feeling safe and secure:

  • Fear of cost: Dental treatments don’t have to break the bank! We accept dental insurance and can work with you to establish a payment plan for your treatment. We can also provide multiple treatment options and help you understand the costs and benefits of each so you can make the best choice for your individual needs and budget.
  • Fear of pain: We offer local anesthetic to minimize or eliminate the discomfort felt during dental procedures. Let us know if you need more anesthetic during the procedure. We can also provide sedation, including nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and conscious oral sedation to allow you to relax.
  • Fear of the unknown: We are happy to answer your questions and explain procedures to you in advance so you know what to expect. We can help you understand treatment options so you feel empowered to choose the best treatment for your needs.
  • Fear of embarrassment: Some people avoid going to the dentist out of fear of guilt trips about the state of their teeth. But when you visit Fife Dental Care, you don’t have to worry about being shamed or lectured. We’re here to help you have beautiful healthy teeth, not make you feel bad about yourself!

If you’ve been putting off going to the dentist or neglecting oral health problems out of fear, shame, or embarrassment, it’s time to make your oral health a priority. Contact us today to learn more about ways we can work together to overcome your dental phobia and give you the beautiful smile you deserve.
