Frequently Asked Questions
- I am afraid of going to the dentist. Can you do anything to help me feel better?
- Yes! Dentistry does not have to be painful or stressful! We provide you with choices. First, via our “Special Requests” program, we will ask you questions and address any fears, discomforts or concerns you may have. We will explain the available techniques, options, and procedures. For example, rather than have an injection, you may be able to take advantage of nitrous oxide and/or our no-drill, air abrasion fillings! We want to know what you like and dislike. Gentech Dentist is committed to making your dental visit as pleasant and comfortable as possible. Our dental offices also feature movies, music and a number of other amenities to entertain, distract and soothe you. Our doctors and support staff wants you to be at complete ease! If there’s anything we can do, all you need to do is ask.
- I’m really afraid of needles. What do I do?
- We have processes for many procedures that can avoid the use of needles altogether. Talk to us about it, so we can recommend an alternative for you. You may be able to take advantage of nitrous oxide and/or our no-drill, air abrasion fillings.
