How Can I Talk to My Dentist About My Dental Anxiety?

Many people have fear or dental anxiety when they walk into a dental office. At The Foleck Center in Hampton, VA, we listen to our patients, and make sure to understand their past dental experiences and feelings before they visit our office. We want our patients to feel comfortable, relaxed, and stress free.

The Foleck Center is the leading dentist in Coliseum Central, VA, and we are dedicated to providing quality and affordable dental care to patients and families in the area. We welcome patients with dental anxiety in Hampton VA, to contact our office, and find out how we can make your visit enjoyable.

What Can We Do To Help?

  • We encourage all of our patients to set up a meeting to discuss their fears or concerns before their first visit to our office. This helps us get to know you and welcome you to our dental family. Our staff will make sure you feel comfortable knowing you are in good hands. We provide you with all of the pertinent information, so you know what to expect every step of the way.
  • During your appointment we offer relaxing music to help distract you from your dental procedure. Hand signals are commonly used to communicate during your appointment. This just helps us know you are doing well. Our patients are our priority, and if you need a break during a procedure, our staff will make sure to work with you, and give you the time you need.
  • Communication is key to a successful appointment. We talk to our patients so they know what we are doing throughout each step of the procedure. This helps the patient understand what we are doing, and makes them feel at ease. Speaking during the procedure helps patients to mentally prepare for what is next.
  • Oral anxiety medications may be recommended to our patients to help them relax during their procedure. These medications are short acting, and can be taken an hour or so before you enter our office.
  • We offer sedation dentistry to help patients fall asleep during your appointment. This helps if you are undergoing a complicated procedure, and ensures the procedure is a success. We safely monitor our patients under sedation at all times during your appointment.
