When it comes to dental health, a startling number of North Americans are not receiving the care they need. For many people, going to the dentist is a debilitating fear. The issues that can occur as a result of not going to the dentist are not limited to your teeth. Dental health problems can also affect your overall physical health, your confidence, your job prospects, and even your social life.

For many people, conquering their fear is not an option. It is estimated that 9-20% of adult North Americans have a phobia of going to visit the dentist. That’s a lot of people not taking care of their teeth.

You only get one set of teeth, so avoiding the dentist is not a sustainable option. However, if your fear is preventing you from getting the care you need, we can help. If you are ready to take charge of your dental health, we have an option for you.
