Help Me, I’m Afraid Of The Dentist!

Salt Lake City Sleep Dentistry If you are afraid of your dentist, you are not alone. At Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS, we encounter many nervous dental patients. How do we calm their fears, provide a comfortable dental environment, and earn lifelong patients?

1) We carefully explain the findings of the initial dental examination and thoroughly outline any recommended care. The consultation also includes a discussion about pain control including oral conscious sedation. This allows our dentistry patients to make enlightened decisions about their oral health and necessary dental services.

2) Dr. Clint Blackwood practices gentle, pain-free dentistry.  Dental treatment will not begin until you are numb. Keep in mind, however, that every dentistry patient reacts to numbing agents and sedation medications differently.

Speak up right away if you start to feel discomfort. We will pause treatment, give you an additional analgesic and wait until it takes effect. At Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS, we never rush dental treatment.

3) We provide many in-office amenities at Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS which help our dental patients focus on something pleasant during dental treatment. Not every dental patient chooses sleep dentistry. Sometimes chemical-free diversions such as listening to your favorite music provide a distraction while letting you remain clear-headed.

At Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS, we understand dental anxiety and will help you overcome it. To schedule a friendly consultation, call 801-938-8855 or visit
