Why People Dodge Dentists

Sure, everyone knows that going to see the dentist is good for you. Preventing dental problems is way easier and cheaper than addressing them once they’ve become serious concerns, after all. However, knowing that something is the right thing to do and actually doing it are two very different things. Here at Tempe Family Dentistry, we’ve heard every excuse in the book for why people avoid coming in to see Dr. Smith and his team. Hopefully, by addressing your issues one by one, we can ease your concerns and get you in for your annual checkup.

For example, we often hear things like, “oh, I keep forgetting to make an appointment.” We understand that taking the time out of your day can be tough. That’s why our office team is top notch, making sure to be available when needed. We reach out to you on easy and convenient platforms like text, making sure that both making and keeping your appointment are as easy as possible.

We also understand that finding a dental team that you like and feel comfortable with can be really tricky. The entire staff here at Tempe Family Dentistry is dedicated to creating a warm and friendly atmosphere that helps make you feel as welcome as possible. When you’re here, we want you to feel like part of our family. Our patients are important to us, and that’s why we place such a high value on customer service.

Of course, we can’t forget the people who avoid coming to the dentist out of a very real sense of anxiety or even fear. Dental anxiety is a well-documented phenomenon, and we would never make light of a condition that impacts so many of our patients. Believe it or not, we even have people on staff who struggle with this particular affliction! Our staff is well practiced at putting anxious patients at ease, and if more is needed than kind words and a patient attitude, we are well-trained in a variety of interventions up to and including anesthesia options.

Often, people are simply afraid of the bad news the dentist may give them about further work that needs to be done with their oral care. However, this fear is exactly why regular appointments are so important. Preventative care is faster, cheaper, and less painful than more serious dental interventions, and can help prevent serious damage in your teeth and gums. Instead of letting your fear of bad news get the best of you, use it to help get the care you need.
Getting good quality dental care on a regular basis is an important part of maintaining your oral hygiene. Instead of allowing the excuses to pile up, why not bite the bullet and make an appointment at Tempe Family Dentistry today? Our team can get you the care you need while easing many of the concerns that may be plaguing you. Stop searching for excuses and make an appointment now to get an appointment on the books.
