This is what some people envision when they think about going to the dentist: Cold, dark, awful.
Moonlight Beach Dental is focused on breaking those negative expectations in every way.
Here’s how we help people overcome their fears of the dentist:
1. Make everything in the office comfortable:
We’ve made a huge investment in your comfort!
For people to start to feel comfortable, everything around them should be comfortable and, as much as possible, feel like home.
- Movies & TV
- Noise-cancelling headphones
- A service dog
- Soft lighting
- Extremely comfortable chairs
2. Invest in the latest technology:
By investing in the latest technology, you get an overall better product, with less time in the dentist chair.
Crowns fit better because they are exact replicas made from digital impressions. Most crowns require only a single visit.
3. An understanding staff:
To overcome any fear, you need supportive, patient and understanding people around you.
Our team has helped hundreds of people overcome their fear of the dentist office – so much that many (if not most) now enjoy their visits and regular checkups.
4. Pain & anxiety management:
Many people don’t go to the dentist like they should because they are afraid of pain.
The thing is, pain management has come a long way.
We have multiple ways to eliminate pain and anxiety from dental work, including conscious sedation, comfortable chairs, pain medication, and just having an understanding dentist.
I am so glad that a sub-specialty of our office is treating phobics.
Over the years, we have converted even the most fearful into people that seem to enjoy coming in!
