If you feel anxious about visiting the dentist, you are not alone. Dental anxiety is extremely common and can be treated. Here at Garrettsville Dental Group in Garrettsville, Ohio, we take pride in giving you high-quality care and are thrilled to talk to you and work with your dental anxiety. That is why we are providing you with these tips and tricks, so you can feel more comfortable while you are in our care.

The first thing to always remember when it comes to the dentist is to be honest. If you are feeling worried or uncomfortable, it’s ok. Be sure you talk to Dr. Andrew Holpuch or a team member about your feelings so we can help you feel as comfortable and safe as possible.

Many people find relief in listening to music during treatment. Wearing headphones while listening to music or watching a movie on your phone can make many people feel more relaxed while sitting in the dental chair. Another trick is to work out a signal with your dentist. Raise your hand or tap the seat if you need a break while you are being examined. This will help your doctor know your feelings while helping you feel in control of the situation to help you stay relaxed.
