I’m the main dental assistant. I work with Dr. Newingham and the patients all the time. We have the latest stuff, and we’re all trained well on it. It’s the best stuff around to make it easiest for the patient. Like the new crowns, we do our crowns now with the machine so the patients are just here one time. They don’t have to come back and wear a temporary, so you get more time with the patient, too, because you’re not in their mouth the whole time with the crowns being made and everything. Conversation just gets going, and they forget that they’re actually getting work done. It’s pretty comfortable for them and for me. I get to know them because I love to talk, and I’m in their mouth, so I get to talk more.
Like yesterday, last night, our last patient was one that came in here, and this girl was scared to death. I mean crying in the chair. It took her a little bit of time, not too bad, just getting warmed up with us. Last night, she says, “You know, I don’t even get scared while coming here anymore, because we’re laughing all the time. To think that how I used to be crying before an appointment, and then now.” We just put in 2 implant teeth, she’s not had these teeth since 16. So she’s like, “How am I going to chew and not get jabbed with a Dorito or whatever?” She was pretty excited. It’s just when you see those patients that have come such a long way from being scared to death and just like family, just like, “Oh, yeah. Great to see you.” Just telling us about this trip she’s going on, and it’s really nice. That’s rewarding to me, and just seeing a patient change with comfort.
Many of our patients feel different levels of dental anxiety or nervousness, so we provide personalized solutions to make sure you are always as comfortable as possible. A few of the many reasons our patients love visiting us include:
- Our warm and welcoming office, where kids can enjoy a playroom just for them (TVs and video games!), and you can enjoy complimentary beverages and even homemade baked goods occasionally provided by our staff
- Our patient-friendly technology and techniques for the most gentle and swift treatment

Think Of Our Office As Though It’s Your Own
If you feel any level of dental anxiety at any time, we will talk with you about different solutions that may make you feel more comfortable.
One solution that has been very effective for our patients is working at the individual patient’s pace. Some people feel they have no control while in a dentist’s chair. That will never be the case at Newingham Dental Center.
We will work slowly and gently during the procedure, telling you exactly what we will do before we do it. You will always have total control, and you can take short breaks between different procedures if you like. Make yourself comfortable so you can feel more at home!
Providing Additional Comfort With Each Visit, Including Dental Sedation
Each of our rooms has its own huge TV screen so you can watch shows or movies to keep your mind off of the procedure. We also provide pillows and blankets for for extra comfort.
If you are nervous or even fearful about an upcoming appointment, we can offer oral sedatives or nitrous oxide. These are completely safe sedation options that can help you fully relax and feel more comfortable during a procedure.
