Dental Anxiety

Dental Anxiety

Statistically, between 9% to 15% of Americans will avoid seeing a dentist for reasons no other than anxiety or fear. Not only is it very common, but people who suffer from this will do just about anything to steer clear of the dentist office. At Plantation Dentist, we use modern practices and a comfortable environment to help our patients feel as comfortable as possible. Dr. Finkelstein has worked with many patients in the past who have overcome their fear and anxiety through trust and great service.


Dental Anxiety

The leading cause of people not seeing a dentist at least once a year is anxiety and fear. Although most dental treatments and procedures cause little to no pain, just the thought of sitting on a dentist chair can be terrifying to some people, and it is more common than most would think.

At Plantation Dentist, we specialize in providing you with the comfort and service that you need to help you feel right at home and stress-free. We understand that dental anxiety doesn't only come from fear of pain, but from a variety of factors which are not easy to deal with. Fighting against dental anxiety starts from the moment you book your appointment, and giving you a pleasant experience from the start.
