Have you ever avoided making a dental appointment because of anxiety? If so, you may not find it surprising to learn that millions of people like you feel exactly the same way when facing dental visits.
There are a number of reasons why you may experience dental fear. Maybe you feel like you aren't in control during treatment, or you had a bad dental experience as a child. Whatever the reason for your anxiety, Dr. Malcolm George has learned that a gentle approach and complete focus on you and your needs can help you overcome your fear and allow you to regain a beautiful, healthy smile.
Your Comfort Is Our Top Priority
At George Family Dentistry, we are committed to providing our patients with a calm and soothing environment. We’ll take the time to make sure that every member of your family is listened to with kindness and respect. Dr. George’s extensive experience, combined with the latest technology, ensures that your visits with us are comfortable and efficient.
From the moment you arrive at our Portland, IN dental office, you’ll see that we don’t look like a typical dental practice. We’ve created a pleasant and inviting environment with special touches like complimentary coffee and water in our reception area. We believe details make all the difference!
We Can Help You Relax
You’ll find that our gentle, caring approach will make a big difference to the way you feel about dental treatments. But we understand that many of our fearful patients feel better knowing that we offer soothing sedation options.
Nitrous oxide is an odorless gas that’s inhaled through your nose during treatment. With nitrous, you won’t go to sleep, but you will experience a very deep sense of relaxation. You’ll be alert enough to talk with us as necessary, but you will be so relaxed that many of the sights and sounds around you will simply fade into the background.
Oral sedation is another option we can consider for our patients who need a little more help relaxing. Dr. George can prescribe an anti-anxiety medication that you should take about an hour before your appointment. When you arrive, you will already feel calm, relaxed, and ready for treatment.
Special Touches Make a Difference!
We offer many amenities to make your dental experiences more calming and relaxing, including complimentary beverages, flat screen TVs, earphones, memory foam pillows, blankets, and even warm towels. Throughout your treatment, Dr. George and our team will go out of our way to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible.
If you’ve been avoiding dental treatment because of anxiety, we would love the chance to show you the difference that gentle care in a warm, inviting environment can make. Please contact our Portland, IN dental office to learn more about our comfortable, personalized dentistry.
