At OKC Smiles, we make a conscious effort to help our patients feel comfortable. Though our chairs are cushy as can be, we are not talking about physical comfort here. We are talking about emotional comfort. In other words, peace of mind.
Here are four ways we are enthusiastic about your peace of mind at OKC Smiles in Oklahoma City:
1. We don’t judge you. Dr. Sterling Stalder has devoted a professional career to promoting oral health and creating beautiful smiles.
The dental team at OKC Smiles is here to help you, regardless of the state of your teeth. We have treated patients with severe tooth neglect, advanced gum disease, enamel erosion caused by eating disorders, tooth damage caused by illegal drug use, baby bottle tooth decay, tobacco-stained teeth: basically, every imaginable dental trouble. We don’t live in a bubble. We understand and empathize with our patients.
2. We protect you from pain. From topical analgesics to oral conscious sedation, we will eliminate or minimize pain as best we can. Dr. Stalder is a pro at administering barely noticeable injections.
3. We help you with your dental anxiety. Fear of the dentist is far more common than you might realize and certainly nothing to be ashamed of. The perceived loss of control, instruments poking in your mouth, and teeth being worked on is not pleasant. Some patients get claustrophobic because they need to lie still in the chair for treatment.
Sleep dentistry (oral conscious sedation) not only aids in pain management, it allows you to sleep through your appointment. There are different levels of sedation, so you don’t have to be completely unconscious unless you want to be. If you would like more details about sedation, call 405-543-2690 to schedule a consultation. We can explore the different levels of oral conscious sedation so you can pick the one that is best for you.
4. We communicate with you. Dr. Stalder has established a reputation as an effective and responsive communicator. Procedures are thoroughly explained and all your critical questions will be answered prior to treatment. If you are not sure you want to initiate treatment, we are happy to let you consider it for a while. There is no rush.
If you have postponed dental treatment for any reason, we encourage you to give Dr. Stalder and the team at OKC Smiles a try. Neglecting your oral health has serious consequences. Call today to schedule an appointment. We look forward to meeting you.
