I have a terrible fear of the dentist. How can you help me relax?
You obviously can’t get essential treatment if you are too nervous to step inside a dental office! That is why, at the office of Deborah Simpkins, DMD, we focus on making every aspect of your dental care easy and stress free.
How we can help anxious patients
Our team of experienced professionals understands how difficult it can be, so our goal is to treat you with warmth and kindness. Dental care is a lot easier when you have a familiar team you feel comfortable turning to with any problem you might face. But even with our gentle care, patients may require a little more help to relax, so we are pleased to offer the benefits of oral sedation. Dr. Simpkins will prescribe a sedative that you should take about an hour before your appointment.
You will arrive at our office feeling drowsy, relaxed, and ready for your appointment. The sedative will help you stay calm, and some of our patients even drift off during the procedure! The effects of oral sedation stay in your system for a few hours, so you will need a ride to and from your appointment.
