Dental sedation is a personal choice for each patient. When you have suffered trauma that leads to fear of the dentist, it is important to process that emotion and feel comfortable and knowledgeable about your sedation options before undergoing dental treatment.
At the Center for Advanced Dentistry in Nashville, Dr. Kent White takes the time to discuss and understand your concerns before recommending a sedation option for your dental treatment. Dr. White believes in treating the whole patient. It is not just about correcting imperfections in your teeth. Dr. White’s dentistry practice is about bringing harmony to your oral health and enriching your life with a positive dental experience.
If you are considering sedation because of your unease with visiting a dentist, you are not alone. One study found that 1 in 10 people are afraid of the dentist, and of those, nearly half of them avoided dental care because of their severe anxiety.
Dr. White’s skill, experience, and gentle chair-side manner will help to put you at ease. Dr. White is one of the few dentists in the country to be named an LVI Fellow. This designation recognizes Dr. White’s ongoing commitment to continuing education and consistent high-quality standards of care for his patients.
