We Work at Your Pace & Provide Sedation if Needed

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!

If you are nervous or even fearful about your treatment, we can offer oral sedatives or nitrous oxide. These completely safe sedation options help you fully relax and feel more comfortable during a procedure.

We believe the more you prepare at home, the better your dental experience will be. If you start to feel anxious about your dental work, take six to 10 deep breaths slowly.
