For some, just the word “dentist” can evoke strong feelings of panic and terror. A visit to the dentist can awaken frightful memories that may even stem back to childhood. They may remember a cold and clinical dental office with an unfriendly office staff that has no understanding of a nervous patient’s fears. A dentist that didn’t take the time to calmly explain the dental procedure or answer any questions. For some, the sound of the drill along with the smell of grinding teeth is enough to push them over the top and allow fear take over, causing dental anxiety that may last a lifetime. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way anymore.
When looking for a Dentist in Centralia WA, the choice is clear. At Fairway Dental, each patient’s care is personalized and customized to their needs. From the minute the patient walks in the door, it’s clear that this office isn’t like any other. The patient is always greeted and made to feel welcome by the friendly staff. The waiting room, complete with a cozy fireplace, always has coffee and tea available for the patient’s enjoyment.
Prior to any procedure, the dentist and staff always make certain to explain everything clearly to the patient and also answer any questions they may have. Additionally, there are no more uncomfortable exam chairs. Massage chairs are available to enjoy during dental work, to help relax those tense muscles. Pillows and blankets also help to make the patient more comfortable. Each room is also equipped with a large television to help pass the time and distract the anxious patient.
A visit to the dentist can truly be like a visit to the spa with free hand waxing included. Hand waxing is a relaxing process that helps to soften and smooth the skin, at the same time, aiding as a diversion from the dental work being performed. For the apprehensive patient, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is always an option. It is common for most dentists to charge an additional fee for this service, but not at Fairway Dental. Nitrous is always included at no additional charge to help relax the patient.
