What to Expect at your Dental Appointment

Anxiety about dental visits is very common. It is estimated that as many as 15% of Americans avoid making dental appointments because of fear or anxiety.

Indianapolis, IN dentist, Dr. Dane Uhl, is on a mission to minimize and eliminate your anxiety, however, so that missed dental appointments become a thing of the past!

Here are just a few ways that we help you to feel comfortable with us:

  • We Work to Earn Your Trust – All doctor-patient relationships should be built on a foundation of trust. Our team spends time getting to know you so that you never feel like a stranger when you visit us. It’s important for us to understand your concerns, so we encourage you to talk about your fears so we can tailor your treatment accordingly.
  • The Support of a Caring Team – At German Church Road Dentistry, we know you can’t get the care you need unless you feel at ease with us. Our exceptional team has an amazing 150 years of combined experience and knows exactly how to put fearful patients at ease! They are supportive and compassionate because they are here for the same reason you are – to ensure your great oral health.
  • Soothing Sedation – Sometimes even the most attentive care may not be enough to help you through your appointment. We are pleased to offer sedation methods that can be customized to your needs. Nitrous oxide sedation helps you gently relax and is appropriate for just about anyone who is anxious. If you need a little more help relaxing, Dr. Uhl can prescribe a calming medication for you to take before your appointment.
