Dealing with Dental Anxiety

Posted on June 11th, 2013 by

If you aren’t the biggest fan of visiting the dentist, you are not alone. You also don’t have to live the rest of your life dreading every dental appointment, either. Here are some tips for you to overcome your anxiety about the dentist:

  • Keep in mind that modern dentistry has greatly advanced and that most treatments are pain-free.
  • Find a dental office that takes measures to relax you and put you at ease.
  • Ask your dentist questions about any procedures, so you fully understand what is happening.
  • Bring headphones so you can listen to relaxing music during your treatment.
  • If you have learned breathing exercises from yoga, Lamaze or any other classes, practice them during your treatment.
  • Reveal your concern in detail to your dentist so he or she can make any adjustments for you to feel more comfortable.
  • Keep up with dental hygiene to avoid anymore extensive treatments in the future.
  • Schedule your appointment for the morning so you won’t have to spend all day worrying about the upcoming visit.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
