Todd Shatkin on Managing Dental Anxiety

Hi, I’m Dr. Todd Shatkin, and welcome to the Aesthetic Associates Centre. Do you suffer from a fear of going to the dentist? You’re not alone.

Thousands and thousands of Americans suffer from dental anxiety and are scared to go to the dentist because they’ve had a bad experience when they were younger, or they’ve got tooth pain, or for whatever reason – maybe they’re afraid it’s going to be a lot of money, they’re embarrassed to smile. Whatever it might be, we see those patients every single day.

You don’t have to be scared. You come in and see us, and we’ll make it very comfortable, very relaxed for you. We don’t criticize you if you haven’t been to the dentist in five or ten years; that’s not my place. My place is to help you, and we will help you be comfortable in our office, from our massaging chairs to our relaxation music.

If you need sedation, we provide oral conscious sedation, we have nitrous oxide gas, and we even have an MD anesthesiologist who will come in and give you an IV and put you in a twilight sedation mode so that you really won’t feel or think of anything other than sleeping during the procedure. There’s no reason to be scared of the dentist anymore. With our technology, with the equipment we have in our office, we make it very easy and comfortable every time you’re there.

Please give us a call for a free consultation. Let me sit with you and talk to you about what we can do to help your smile. I look forward to seeing you soon.

If you or a loved one is in need of dental work, but your dental anxiety is holding you back, please contact us to arrange your free consultation with Dr. Todd Shatkin DDS at the Aesthetic Associates Centre. We offer several options to help you remain calm and comfortable during your treatment.
