Dental Anxiety

If you have dental anxiety, it’s vital to choose a dentist who will listen and acknowledge your fears.

Seek recommendations from family and friends. You could also do some research online. Ensure you feel comfortable with this dentist before booking any treatments. If you’re not happy, try someone else. Identify your fear. Once you know exactly what you’re fearful about, you can start working towards a solution.

1. Speak up 

2. Distract yourself 

3. Use mindfulness techniques 

The team at Dr Jenkins' Dental office in Evansville, IN are compassionate about making your dental visit as comfortable as possible.
