Removing Fear from the Dentist Chair

A visit to the dentist's office should be carefree. The truth is, for most of us, it isn't. The American Association of Endodontists found that a whopping 80% of adult Americans feel fear at the dentist. This is a problem because the dentist shouldn't be a source of anxiety in your life. A dentist's responsibility is to promote a healthy lifestyle, and to support patients through outstanding care. As a dentist in Bakersfield, Kern Dental Specialists are committed to this ideal. Here's how we directly  combat dental fear to help get more patients through our doors to receive the quality care they deserve. 

It begins with atmosphere. We take steps to ensure that patients are comfortable in a friendly and warm environment to help reduce any stress or anxiety. We extend the same attitude to our treatment. Our dentists are specialty trained in endodontics which is a field devoted to the soft inner tissue of the tooth that carries the nerve endings. We're able to reduce the risk of pain while operating in these areas through experience and precision. So if you're looking for dental implants in Bakersfield,we're a top choice for top notch treatment.

Though, contrary to popular belief, a root canal can be painless, we offer patients the choice to undergo the procedure under sedation to ensure a comfortable experience. Whether patients are in need of implants or an emergency dentist in Bakersfield CA, Kern Dental Specialists are the best choice for fear free, gentle dental care.
