Sedation Dentistry In Fresno At Prices Families Can Afford

Are you scared? Even terrified of the dentist?

Welcome to Smith Sedation Dentistry where we specialize in helping really really scared people overcome their fear and get the care for their teeth that they need. We understand how you feel. Are you scared or even terrified of the dentist? Does the thought of hearing the drill overwhelm you? Are you in pain? Does the thought of sitting in the dental chair make you want to cry? Have you scheduled dental appointments before and cancelled them? Does this sound familiar? Are you embarrassed? You are not alone. We are here to help.

“Dr. Smith can help you overcome your fear of the dentist”

Sedation dentistry may be a great option  if you have been feeling scared about being treated by a dentist.

We see patients every day who have had a bad dental experience and have avoided the dental office for years, even since their childhood due to fear. We understand this and want you to have a positive dental experience. Call our office and talk with Melissa. She will listen to your cares and concerns and answer any questions that you might have. She understands–she fears dental work just as much as you do.

What Makes You So Scared Of The Dentist?

We have done thousands of sedations, so we have successfully treated many patients just as scared as you.  Maybe you can’t get numb, or you had a terrible experience in the past.  Maybe the scraping of your teeth makes you sweat or you can’t stand the sound of the drill. Maybe you are claustrophobic or have an overwhelming gag reflex.  No matter what it is, we have heard many stories very similar to yours.  It is a essential that we take our time in the first visit and get to understand what your fear is so that we can overcome it.

Your First Visit

All patients coming to our office will start with a nice comfortable safe consultation with Melissa and Dr. Smith. Melissa has been with Dr. Smith since they started in 2001, and she hates going to the dentist as much as you do. Dr. Smith and Melissa take their time learning about your past, your fears, what you need done with your teeth. X-rays are taken if possible but often nothing “pokey” goes in the mouth. We talk about all the options that modern dentistry has. We will show you models and talk about the pros and cons of every option. We will discuss the types of sedation and talk about what works best in each situation. And we will talk about how much everything will cost. Nothing is hidden. Nothing is a surprise.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING

I really love the entire staff at the office of Rob Smith! After having a baby during the initial pandemic shutdown in early 2020 I really let my dental work go and was in need of multiple fillings as well as a tricky root canal. It was a really scary thing for me to go in and get in done due to having really bad dental experiences in the past and struggling with overall anxiety. The entire office really made me feel comfortable and validated and Rob Smith as a really kind and calm bedside manner that I really appreciate. I am so glad I took the time to find them and get back to good dental health again!
