As we close our first month of blogs here at Bell & Bell Dentistry, we wanted to encourage you to call our Frankfort, KY dental office to schedule your first appointment with us.
When it comes to your oral health, Dr. David and Dr. Joe Bell know that for many people, maintaining routine dental appointments can be very frightening. There are so many things about a dentist’s office that trigger those intense feelings of fear and anxiety, that it can often make it difficult for you to keep up with cleanings and exams.
We completely understand why you might feel this way. Dental anxiety affects millions of Americans, and often for very similar reasons. Whether you’ve had a negative experience in the past at the dentist’s office or you fear pain or the unknown, our team of caring professionals make your comfort a top priority.
That’s why at Bell & Bell Dentistry, we treat you like a guest, not a patient. Today, we’re sharing answers to just a couple of the most common questions we get from people who are trying to find a dentist’s office who will help them overcome dental anxiety and get their oral health back on track.
We hope you’ll find today’s blog helpful in giving you the security you need to pick up the phone and give us a call today!
Question #1: What sets Bell & Bell Dentistry apart from other practices?
This is a fair question. After all, aren’t all dental offices pretty much run the same way?
Well, yes and no. What we mean is, every dentist has the same goals in mind when it comes to helping patients achieve their healthiest, most beautiful smile.
And we have tremendous respect for our colleagues in the field. But we have a different approach to caring for you and your smile.
Yes, you want a dentist who has the knowledge, skills, and experience to give you the high quality care you deserve. You’ll find that in our father and son team, Dr. David Bell and Dr. Joe Bell. Both have had extensive education and experience serving the residents of this community and are worthy of your trust. Just ask any of our satisfied patients!
It may be our knowledge and technology that help patients achieve good oral health, but we believe that’s only a small part of what keeps patients coming back again and again.
When you trust your smile to our team in Frankfort, KY, you’re coming to a dental office whose staff cares about you. We go out of our way to make you feel comfortable from the moment you arrive.
You’ll find beautiful artwork hanging on the walls and fresh flowers that adorn our office, for example. You’ll feel more like you’ve stepped into a living room rather than a typical doctor’s office.
You can also enjoy a fresh cup of coffee, served in a real coffee mug, or a glass of water in a real glass, both with with linens instead of napkins. You wouldn’t drink anything out of a foam cup at home, and that’s how we want you to feel when you’re here… like you’re home.
We also take our time with you and strive to give each person the time and attention they deserve. The last thing you want when you’re already anxious about a dental appointment is to feel tense, nervous, and rushed. We don’t make you feel any of those things here at Bell & Bell Dentistry!
Question #2: What other ways does Bell & Bell Dentistry help patients feel comfortable?
As we mentioned before, we do house advanced technology that really does help us offer the latest in dental care, much of which can be virtually painless, especially when coupled with local anesthesia.
But some patients have a hard time even getting to that point, which is why we’re happy to offer the highest level of relaxation in dentistry, IV sedation. This will help you feel completely relaxed while you receive treatment.
It’s especially helpful if you’re someone who has been so crippled by dental anxiety, that you’ve stayed away from the dentist for a long time and need extensive care to get your oral health back on track. Our IV sedation can be incredibly helpful in helping you get the treatment you need without the intense anxiety you’re probably used to while in the dental chair.
