At Bubble Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics, we want all of our patients to have a relaxed, calm, and enjoyable experience when visiting. But with a large number of patients, especially children suffering from some kind of dental anxiety or stress it is an uphill battle for dental and orthodontic service providers like us at Bubble. We strive to provide a calming and reassuring atmosphere in our office for our young patients, that’s why our office is carefully decorated to not only match the Bubble brand but to try and take some of the stress away from your dental visits. 

We’ve compiled a list of some potential steps you can take to overcome your dental anxiety and stress below. 

1. Find the Right Dentist

Finding the right dentist can be the difference between an enjoyable and unenjoyable experience. Many factors go into finding the right dentist for you and your loved ones some of these might be, finding a friendly and caring staff that makes the somewhat uncomfortable experience of going to the dentist more enjoyable. Scouring the internet for a dentist with positive reviews and feedback from other customers, other people’s reviews are extremely helpful in finding the right dentist. Your dentist having a friendly, professional, and relaxing office environment is another important factor along with your dentist having the latest and least invasive dental equipment and dental technology available, Dental tech has changed a lot over the years to become less invasive. At Bubble Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics, we try and provide all of these services and more from having a friendly and professional staff, to a relaxing a soothing office environment and providing all the feedback from our customers in the reviews section of our website.

2. Let Your Dentist Know How You are Feeling

Communicating with your dentist is extremely important, especially when it comes to dental anxiety or stress. We heavily advocate for you to explain exactly how you’re feeling to our dental staff so we can best formulate how to plan to make your visit a positive and stress free one. We are here to listen to your concerns and reassure you that our extremely professional and highly trained staff will do everything possible to make your experience quick and painless because we also know nobody is trying to spend hours at the dentist.

3. Try Relaxation Techniques

If you know you have dental anxiety and stress it could be beneficial to get your mind in the right place before/after your appointment. There are a lot of ways you can go about this, some things you could try might include stretching your body, meditating and deep breathing exercises, or even going for a post-appointment treat like ice cream. Anything you can do to calm yourself before and after your visit will greatly improve the experience you have while at the dentist.
