Dr. Patterson of Chandler, AZ is acutely familiar with the excuses and valid reasons why people cancel or just don’t make dental appointments. Though he enjoys being a dentist, he understands the apprehensiveness that his patients experience and he is ready to put their minds at ease. Here are four reasons why people fear the dentist.

  1. Patients who have had a bad childhood experience with dentistry. Dr. Patterson knows exactly what to do if you have had an unpleasant experience with dental procedures. His professional and understanding staff can help you overcome it by providing trained and experienced services.
  2. Exuberant costs. Dr. John Patterson found a way to offer professional services at a fraction of the cost.
  3. Tooth drilling. We know that the drill and other dental apparatuses can be intimidating to our patients. We offer solutions such as sleep dentistry or sedation to combat fear and high anxiety, allowing our patients to relax and actually enjoy their dental visits.
  4. Fear of Needles. No one we have met thus far likes needles. Dr. Patterson is careful to explain every procedure and to consult with you regarding the best option for you to obtain treatment. He can offer additional anesthetic support if needed.
