“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, avoiding the dental office for years, even since their childhood. We understand the fear is real, and our goal is to create new positive experiences in our office. Call our office to set up a consultation with Melissa. She will listen to your fears, 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, 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… you’re claustrophobic… you have an overwhelming gag reflex… No matter what it is, you are not alone. We want you to share your experiences with us. It is essential that we take our time on that first visit. We want to understand your fear, so that we can overcome it together.

Your First Visit

,All patients coming into our office for a sedation consultation will start with a nice, comfortable, safe meeting with Melissa and Dr. Smith. Melissa has been with Dr. Smith since they started in 2001, and she hates going to the dentist just 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. Our plan of action will be tailored to your individual needs, and that will reflect in your estimate as well. We do our best to optimize available insurance funds giving, you as much value as possible. We take our time to talk about how much everything will cost. Nothing is hidden. Nothing is a surprise.

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!
