At The Yuma Dentist, we make a conscious effort to help our patients feel comfortable. Though our chairs are cushy as can be, we are not only talking about physical comfort here. We are talking about emotional comfort. In other words, peace of mind.
Here are four ways we are committed to your peace of mind at Yuma Family Dentist in Yuma:
1. We don’t judge you. The dental team at Yuma Family Dentist is here to help you, regardless of the state of your teeth. We have treated patients with severe tooth neglect, advanced gum disease, enamel erosion caused by eating disorders, tooth damage caused by illegal drug use, baby bottle tooth decay, tobacco-stained teeth: basically, every imaginable dental issue. We don’t live in a bubble. We understand and empathize with our patients.
2. We protect you from pain. From topical analgesics to sedation, we will eliminate pain as best we can.
3. We help you with your dental anxiety. Fear of the dentist is far more common than you might realize and certainly nothing to be ashamed of. Sedation dentistry not only assists in pain management, it puts you in a deeply relaxed state. We offer laughing gas (nitrous oxide) and oral conscious sedation. With the latter, you’ll need a ride to and from our office.
4. We communicate with you. Procedures are thoroughly explained and all your questions will be answered prior to treatment. If you are not sure you want to initiate treatment, we are happy to let you think about it for a while. There is no rush.
