So some things we do, of course, besides having a staff that’s extremely pleasant and welcoming, during our appointments, our patients are offered wireless Bluetooth headphones where they can either pick a show on Netflix or listen to music on Pandora while they are getting their treatment. So that’s been something that has a provided a lot of stress release and sort of a distraction.
Whether it’s a cleaning or something a little bit more involved, we also have extremely soothing colors and comfortable chairs. And we offer sedation as a way to help patients relieve their anxiety even further if that’s something they really need.

- Entertaining diversions like TVs
- Customized treatment, such as longer appointments

To schedule a stress-free appointment, call (978) 288-1946.
Remain in Control of Your Dental Destiny
For some people, dental anxiety comes largely from a fear of the unknown. Our caring staff takes time to listen and understand your concerns and address them before starting any treatment. We’ll explain procedures every step of the way and answer any questions you have. Sharing information with you begins on your first visit, which includes an office tour. If privacy is important to you during your visit, you don’t have to worry. Your dentist will see you in a completely private care room. One of our rooms even offers direct access to the street. You can schedule your appointment as early as 8 a.m. or as late as 7 p.m., so it’s easy to avoid busy times.
Select the Right Form of Sedation
We understand that your anxiety level may vary depending on the kind of procedure you need or other factors. Because every situation is different, you can choose from three types of dental sedation:
- Inhaled sedation, or “laughing gas,” for the lightest level of relaxation
- Oral sedation, for a deeper calm
- IV sedation, for a sleeplike state
Our dentists will advise you on which form of sedation may work best for you. We’ll monitor you closely throughout your treatment, no matter which kind you choose. Relieving dental anxiety is important for your smile’s health and beauty. Call Martins Dental Partners at (978) 288-1946. We welcome patients from Beverly, MA and from nearby communities like Peabody, MA and Danvers, MA.
