ANXIETY, the number one reason who people avoid going to the dentist. Although you may have had a less than pleasant experience at some point in your life, avoiding the dentist is dangerous to your overall health. The key to incorporating routine dental visits into your life, is to lean how to come with your underlying fears. One of our goals at the Holistic Practice of Dr Fred Dreher is to do just that! Below are some easy ways we help you to conquer this endeavor, so coming to the dentist becomes routine (and maybe even enjoyable).
What’s worse than walking into a dental office and within the first step, being reminded where you are? The smells, the photos, the sounds, all may bring back a feeling of anxiety and you may want to run the other way. Our goal is to make our facility feel as though you are at home. Large open windows in our operatories, a comforting fireplace, complimentary paraffin wax (food grade, triclosan free) hand treatments, and relaxing essential oils are all amenities to make your experience more pleasant.
