It’s the morning of your dental appointment, and you don’t have a care in the world. You are calm. After all, you are going to Martins Dental Partners in Beverly, MA for your oral checkup.
When you arrive at the office, you are greeted with a friendly smile, and warm, “Welcome back.”
Since you started visiting our office, you noticed that your dental anxiety has become easier and easier to manage. You may have even overcome it.

Does that scenario sound too good to be true? It doesn’t have to be that way. Let us show you how we can help you keep your mouth healthy and reduce the stress you feel about going to the dentist. Call 978-288-1946 to plan your visit or to learn more about us.
Knowledge Is Power
If you feel anxious about going to the dentist, then you should know that you are not alone. Experts estimate that between 9 and 15 percent of the population avoid going to the dentist due to fear. For some perspective that’s between 30 and 40 million people.
The reasons for dental anxiety vary from person to person, but there are some common concerns that we have heard multiple times.
In many cases, anxiety can come down to fear of not knowing. First and foremost, our caring team of dental professionals wants to listen to you. If you have concerns, please let us know. We want to hear what you have to say. We want to know what questions you have. This lets us work with you to make your visits more comfortable and to give you the information you want and need to feel better about your dental visits with us.
For new patients, one of the first things we do is offer a tour of our office. This gives you an opportunity to become familiar with our team members. Again, feel free to ask questions at any time.
For patients concerns about privacy, you will meet with one of our doctors in a completely private room. And we offer office hours as early as 8 a.m. and as late as 7 p.m. We can help you plan your visits around our least busy times if that would help you feel more at ease.
Block The Pain
Pain is another common concern for people with dental phobia. We can’t deny that you may have had a bad experience when you were younger or at another dentist office. At the same time, we can assure you that we will do everything we can to make your treatments as painless as possible.
This includes small things like our intraoral cameras. These allow us to get a close view of your mouth from a number of angles. We also offer levels of dental sedation. Whether you are getting a routine cleaning, a root canal, or full-mouth reconstruction, we have an option to block pain during your procedure.
