At Price & Associates Family Dentistry we understand that being afraid of dental treatment doesn’t really make you a coward. Millions of people have some kind of dental phobia that makes it hard or even impossible for them the receive the treatment they need. Dr. Ashley Price is a cater to cowards dentist because she wants to reach out to people who have not been able to receive dental treatment. She will treat you with a warm and caring chairside manner to help you feel at ease. And she wants to help you overcome your fear, so you can establish a long-term professional relationship and enjoy the benefits of regular dental care.
Dr. Price’s Cater to Cowards Approach
Dr. Price and her entire staff understand that it can be unbearably scary to return to the dentist if you have ever been traumatized during treatment. She will begin by listening to you. She knows that dental fear can lead to years of neglect and serious dental issues, so you will never be judged. Instead, you will be treated with respect and compassion.
Practicing Pain-Free Dentistry
If you have ever experienced a situation in which a dentist began working on you before you were completely numb, we want you to know—that will never happen here. Dr. Price can administer novocaine so gently that you will not feel it, and she will listen to you and monitor your demeanor throughout the appointment to make sure you are completely comfortable.
Providing Appropriate Levels of Sedation
Sometimes a good chairside manner just isn’t enough. So Dr. Price provides three progressive levels of sedation, from nitrous oxide and conscious oral sedation to intravenous sedation. If you are moderately anxious, nitrous oxide or conscious oral sedation may be all you need. But for patients with severe anxiety, intravenous sedation can take you to a deeper level and ensure that, although you are awake and aware during your appointment, you will not remember anything about it afterwards. You can read more about Dr. Price’s sedation practices here on our sedation dentistry page.
Spa-Like Amenities Wrap You in Comfort
Sometimes just waiting for an appointment can cause anxiety, so we make sure to greet you promptly, offer you a beverage if you wish, and make you comfortable. We will start your treatment off with a warm lavender towel which will help you relax. We also offer a blanket to wrap yourself in, pillows, massaging chairs, noise-reduction headphones, and a television that you can watch during treatment.
Sometimes just meeting with Dr. Price for a brief complimentary consultation can do much to relieve your fear. Call our office, and we will be happy to schedule an appointment at time that works for you.
