Dental Phobia

Nearly 50% of adults in the US have significant fear of visiting the dentist and is ranked one of the top 3 phobias for adults.

This fear is most commonly the result of past bad experiences. Other reasons for this fear is because people can feel loss of control, embarrassment, fear of needles, dental drills, or the smells inside old-school dental offices. The team at Smile Blue Ridge understands these fears and we do everything possible to make your visit with us a pleasant and memorable experience, one that you look forward to, rather than dread!
