Dental anxiety is no joke. Millions suffer from it. More concerning than this number, however, is the amount of those people who are putting their overall health at risk by avoiding dental treatment. The fact is, your dental health and systemic health are directly connected; when one of them is compromised the other can follow. Research shows that unchecked dental issues, even seemingly minor ones, can lead to serious systemic health consequences, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and pregnancy complications. Whether you’ve previously had an unpleasant experience during a dental visit, or even if there’s no obvious explanation for your dental anxiety, we strongly encourage you not to skip regular dental exams and treatment. Dr. Germain Jean-Charles, Dr. Ajay Kashi, and the entire team here will do everything possible to make you feel comfortable throughout your visits with us. Our doctors have a reassuring manner, proven expertise, and a history of positive patient experiences. In addition, they offer IV sedation and other types of anesthesia to keep you pain- and fear-free during procedures.
