• What’s Keeping You from the Dentist?

    on Sep 20th, 2017

A surprising number of Americans neglect to give their smile the professional attention it deserves. Whether it is avoiding routine dental visits or putting off restorative or cosmetic dental procedures, why are you holding back? We’ve compiled the top reasons why people avoid the dentist. Acknowledging these obstacles has helped us to develop a practice that addresses each of these concerns and allows all types of patients to get the dental treatments they need for optimal health and confidence.



In recent reports, cost is the primary reason who patients don’t respond to their appointment reminder cards. There is no arguing the fact that dental care can be expensive. Many families have opted out of dental insurance to protect their yearly budgets. Fortunately, this doesn’t mean you have to cancel your dental visits. Our office provides flexible payment options, monthly financing plans and a valued Dental Assurance Plan that offers remarkable discounts without the high premiums of traditional insurance. If cost is a burden, explore your options!


Dental Anxiety

Dental anxiety or dental phobia affects both adults and kids. It is a very real condition. While it can be triggered from a bad experience in the past or your fear of pain or needles, there are ways we can address your dental anxiety. In fact, today’s dentistry can feel more like a trip to the spa than the dentist. Not only do we offer soothing amenities to reduce your stress, but we can also administer sedation dentistry – a perfect solution if you keep canceling your dental appointment due to anxiety.


Guilt or Embarrassment

Perhaps it has been awhile since your last dental cleaning, or you have a smoking habit that has clearly left its mark on your smile. This can make people hesitant to visit the dentist due to embarrassment or the fear that they’ll be lectured for their poor dental health. At Dentistry of Highland Village, we never want you to feel ashamed of the condition of your smile. While we may recommend some restorative work to get your smile back in shape, we always present your treatment options using a non-judgmental and non-threatening approach. We’re just glad you came to see us!



Life is busy; we get it. Whether your work schedule is tying you down or your kids have countless activities after school, it can be difficult to fit routine dental care into your busy calendar. Don’t worry – we make it easy at Dentistry of Highland Village. We accept walk-ins and our office is open from 7am to 7pm!

What is your excuse for not going to the dentist like you should? We hope we are a dental practice that eliminates your excuses, obstacles and concerns regarding professional dental care. Call Dentistry of Highland Village today and start saying “yes” to your smile!
