Begin New Year With Resolution You CAN Keep!

Posted on Dec 27, 2012 by William J. Claiborne, DDS MS

We all make New Year’s resolutions — exercise more, eat less sugar and more veggies, etc., etc. But, like many American adults, by mid-February we’re losing steam with our commitment. By the first of April, many of us have raised the proverbial white flag.

It’s not unusual for adults to have periodontal disease because dental fears have prevented them from receiving the dental care they need. So, here is a Resolution you can keep: Overcome your fear of dentistry! That’s right! You CAN do it and we’re here to help you! Here’s how …

• First, call us at (828) 274-9440. A friendly staff member will answer the phone and answer your questions. She can set up a consultation appointment for you if you’d like to meet personally with me.

• We’ll begin by conversing in our quiet consultation room, which is removed from the clinical side of the practice. We’ll sit in comfy arm chairs and I’ll explain the options we have available for patients with high fear or anxiety.

• After this visit, it’s up to you to decide how you wish to proceed. I can walk you to the clinical area and show you around. Or, I can introduce you to a few of our staff members who are experienced in caring for patients with dental fear.

Remember, the first step is in your hands. Let us help you with a New Year’s resolution you CAN keep!
