  2. What keeps people from going to the dentist?

    We have found that fear, time, no sense of urgency and budget are roadblocks for seeing your dentist.

    What do you do at Frankel Dentistry to address a fearful patient?

    Offering complimentary consultation and tours as well as listening to our patients keeps even the most hesitant patient coming on a regular basis.

    What about time? We are all busy.

    Dr. Frankel decided while still a dental student his patients would not wait. We also see emergencies the same day.

    Why go to the dentist? My teeth feel fine.

    A healthy mouth promotes a healthy body. Dental disease is often silent. Diabetes, heart disease and stroke are associated with your oral health. New studies indicate many types of cancer and even Alzheimer’s disease show a link to oral health.

    How much will it cost?

    We offer a complimentary benefits estimate of dental insurance as well as Care Credit payment options including interest free.

    If thinking of the dentist sends chills to your bones, know that you are not alone. Dental fear and anxiety is a common phobia among Americans. Dr. Frankel has put together 4 tips to help you overcome your dental anxiety.

    1.) Schedule a Consultation

    Meeting with Dr. Frankel, another doctor, or a hygienist without his or her surgical mask on will help build a more trusting relationship and help ease the anxiety of visiting the dentist.


    2.) Ask Questions

    When it comes to your dental health and well being, no question should go unanswered. Knowing the answers to your questions will take away much of the fear you have about certain procedures and allow you to feel more comfortable in the chair.

    3.) Bring a Family Member Who Will Help You Relax

    No one wants to do something that makes them afraid alone. Having someone near that you trust goes along way when conquering your fears. If you can’t bring someone with you, try listening to music or mediating while in the chair. This may help you lose focus on what you are anxious about.

    4.) Ask for sedation.

    Don’t forget, a healthy mouth promotes a healthy body. Taking care of your small dental problems now will decrease your risk of more complicated issues in the future and help eliminate your phobia. At your next appointment, let us know if there is anything we can do to specially care for your dental needs.
