Visiting the dentist can be a nerve-wracking experience for many, but there are several ways to make your dental appointment more relaxing. At Exceptional Smiles at Landerbrook, we understand this and have tailored our practice to enhance your comfort. Here’s how we, and you, can make your dental visit a more soothing experience.

Our Part in Promoting Stress-Free Dental Visits

Our friendly and caring staff are dedicated to guiding you through each step of your visit. We strive to create a calming atmosphere with soothing amenities, making you feel at home. For patients with dental anxiety or special needs, we offer in-office IV Sedation, administered by trusted partners. This option ensures a stress-free and comfortable dental experience.

What You Can Do:

Before Your Appointment

  • Choose the Right Time: Schedule your appointment at a time of day when you feel most at ease. Avoiding rush hours might reduce your stress levels.
  • Practice Relaxation Techniques: Engaging in relaxation techniques such as deep breathing or meditation before your appointment can help calm nerves.
  • Stay Informed: Understanding the procedures can alleviate fears. Don’t hesitate to call us beforehand with any questions.
  • Get a Good Night’s Sleep: Being well-rested can significantly impact your anxiety levels.

At Your Appointment:

  • Arrive Early: Arriving with plenty of time to spare can help you acclimate to the environment and reduce rush-induced stress.
  • Listen to Music: Bringing headphones and listening to calming music or an audiobook can help distract and soothe you.
  • Communicate Your Fears: Our staff is here to help. Letting us know about your anxieties allows us to tailor our approach to your comfort.

After Your Appointment:

  • Reward Yourself: Plan a relaxing or enjoyable activity after your appointment as a reward for facing your dental fears.
  • Reflect on the Experience: Take a moment to acknowledge the steps you took to make your visit more relaxing. This can help ease future anxieties.

At Exceptional Smiles at Landerbrook, we’re committed to ensuring your visit is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Remember, taking steps to relax before and during your appointment can significantly change your dental experience.
