At our West Linn dental office, our goal is to combine superior professional-quality care with exceptional patient care. One of the most important elements of this care is patient comfort.
We know that many patients feel nervous about visiting the dentist. As a family dental office, we see it as our job to reduce dental anxiety by listening to you, explaining procedures, answering questions, and building a lasting relationship that allows us to get to know you as an individual with unique wants and needs.
At our West Linn dental office, we strive to create an atmosphere of comfort and calm, complete with fresh flowers and relaxing music to soothe jitters, while our friendly staff are available at all times. We understand that a trip to the dentist can raise anyone’s level of anxiety, particularly if you’ve had bad experiences in the past. We believe that a big part of our job is to reduce that anxiety– even help you enjoy yourself!
Sometimes anxiety can be so high for patients that it becomes a barrier to achieving the level of dental care they need and deserve. In these cases, West Linn dentist Dr. Roane is trained to provide a tailored level of sedation to help reduce anxiety. We also offer nitrous oxide, colloquially known as “laughing gas,” to ease frazzled nerves.
Our goal is to see our patients flourish with exceptional dental health, and we don’t want dental anxiety to get in the way! If you feel the use of nitrous oxide or sedation dentistry is right for you, please don’t hesitate to ask at your appointment or call ahead of time. Our job isn’t just great West Linn dental care – it’s also to make you comfortable while we’re doing it!
