At La Costa Dental Excellence, we make a conscious effort to help our patients feel comfortable. Though our chairs are cushy as can be, we are not only talking about physical comfort here. We are talking about emotional comfort. In other words, peace of mind.
Here are four ways we are enthusiastic about your peace of mind at La Costa Dental Excellence in Carlsbad:
1. We don’t judge you. Drs. Stephen and Kimberly Dankworth have devoted a professional career to promoting oral health and creating beautiful smiles.
The friendly dental team at La Costa Dental Excellence is here to help you, regardless of the state of your teeth. We have treated patients with severe tooth neglect, advanced gum disease, enamel erosion caused by eating disorders, tooth damage caused by illegal drug use, baby bottle tooth decay, tobacco-stained teeth: basically, every imaginable dental problem. We don’t live in a bubble. We understand and empathize with our patients.
2. We protect you from pain. From topical analgesics to oral conscious sedation, we will eliminate or minimize pain as best we can. Drs. Dankworth is a pro at administering barely noticeable injections.
3. We help you with your dental anxiety. Fear of the dentist is far more widespread than you might realize and certainly nothing to be ashamed of. The perceived loss of control, instruments poking in your mouth, and teeth being worked on is not pleasant. Some people get claustrophobic because they need to lie still in the chair for treatment.
Sleep dentistry (oral conscious sedation) not only assists with pain management, it allows you to sleep through your appointment. There are different levels of sedation, so you don’t have to be completely unconscious unless you want to be. If you would like more information about sedation, call 760-633-3033 to schedule a consultation. We can consider the different levels of oral conscious sedation so you can decide on the one that is best for you.
4. We communicate with you. Drs. Dankworth has established a reputation as an effective and understanding communicator. Procedures are thoroughly explained and all your critical questions will be answered prior to treatment. If you are not sure you want to initiate treatment, we are happy to let you think about it for a while. There is no rush.
If you have postponed dental treatment for any reason, we encourage you to give Drs. Dankworth and the team at La Costa Dental Excellence a try. Neglecting your oral health has serious consequences. Call today to schedule an appointment. We look forward to meeting you.
