Don’t Fear the Dentist! We’re on Your Team!

Here at Thunderbird Dental Group, we understand that our Langley dental patients may suffer from dental anxiety and therefore can be extremely reluctant to contact us and book an appointment. Research has identified the Top 3 anxiety-causing reasons about dental visits – and here’s what we’re doing to make your every visit to our Langley dental clinic something to look forward to!

  • Pain

Fear of pain is completely natural and the dentists at Thunderbird Dental Group, your Langley dentist, understand that anxiety associated with needles and the idea of pain/discomfort in the mouth can convince patients they’re better off suffering from oral health care issues than coming to the dentist. However, we want to set the record straight. Most dental procedures are currently pain-free. If you require sedation and dislike needles, we’ll offer you alternative options or conceal the needle if necessary.

  • Embarrassment 

90% of patients in one recent study reported that embarrassment is the no. 1 reason why they don’t visit the dentist. If you’re worried that you’ve neglected your teeth and your oral health care, come in for an appointment and learn about your oral health care options at Thunderbird Dental Group. We’re here to help and we promise we won’t lecture you! After all, we’re your oral health care partner and your oral health is just as important to us as it is to you.

  • Control 

If you don’t like feeling like you have no control over what happens in the dentist chair, come to our Langley dental clinic for a dental experience like no other. We promise to do our best to communicate with you, both online and offline. We’ll work out a system that allows you to alert us to any trouble or discomfort during a procedure.

At Thunderbird Dental Group, your Langley dentist, our goal is to give you the best dental experience possible. Contact us today and find out why we should be your Langley choice for oral health care.
