When you’ve taken a bit of a hiatus from seeing the dentist, you may be nervous to go back. No matter what your reasons are for avoiding dental care, the important thing everyone at my dental office in St. Joseph wants you to know is that now you’re considering coming back, nothing makes us happier.
No matter why you stopped visiting your dentist in St. Joseph, you’re not alone. Many people have had experiences that keep them from wanting to see the dentist. Perhaps a negative experience left you scared of the dentist, or you moved to a new area and haven’t found a dentist you trust. Whatever your reason, we understand and we’re glad to have you back.
Put Your Feet up and Stay Awhile
Your return first visit will probably be longer than your visits in the past. We’ll want to spend some time getting to know you and talking about what’s kept you away in the first place. The more we know about your situation, the better care we can provide. We’ll also want to make sure to get your mouth as healthy as possible, fully evaluate your oral health, and keep you totally comfortable in the process.
You’re Not in Trouble
Often, patients who have been away for awhile have a fear of getting lectured to upon their return. Our team does not believe in this approach. We will not look down on you, chastise you, or lecture you. We’re so happy that you’ve made the choice to get back to health that we’ll do everything we can to make you feel safe, comfortable, and ready to pursue the care you need.
Depending on how long it’s been since you’ve seen a dentist, there may be some new technologies available that you’re unfamiliar with. This is a good thing. Improvements in dental technology help make care quicker, easier, and less painful than ever before.
If you’re ready to see a dentist again, we encourage you to call my St. Joseph dental office. We welcome you to come experience our service and our office personality. From the beginning, we’ll talk about your concerns and work with you to get your smile strong, beautiful, and healthy.
