Whether you’re waiting because of COVID-19 or you’re feeling dental anxiety, it’s time to make an appointment to see your dentist. We’re taking all necessary precautions to keep every patient that walks through our doors safe, calm, and confident in their oral health.

Why shouldn’t you put off your dentist appointment any longer? Here are five unbeatable reasons to schedule your appointment now.

1. We Go Above and Beyond with COVID-19 Precautions

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we’re providing patients with a safe experience at our office by following the CDC’s and WHO’s recommendations. From social distancing in the reception area to staggering appointments, your health is our top priority.

We are happy to accommodate patients that prefer to wait in the comfort of their car. Complete your patient packet at home, and we’ll give you a call as soon as we’re ready for you to come in. 

We screen all of our staff and patients for COVID symptoms before allowing them to enter our office. Visitors are invited to use hand sanitizer or one of our handwashing stations. Read more about what we’re doing to stop the spread of coronavirus in our announcement.

2. Have No Fear! Hanson Dental Is Here!

Your dental health is our specialty, and we can help prevent dental anxiety from getting between you and a beautiful smile. If you experience fear, anxiety, or stress in a dental setting, just let us know when you make your appointment. Dental phobia is a problem for many people, so don’t feel shy about sharing your concerns with our friendly receptionists.

We will gladly answer any questions you may have to make you feel comfortable during an appointment. We also offer a wide array of sensory distractions and the latest technologies for quick treatments that are less painful.

3. Cavities Don’t Wait. Why Should You?

The longer you put off your visit, the longer bacteria, plaque, and cavities have to run amuck in your mouth. Cavities form a matter of months, so seeing us twice a year is a must. As cavities develop, the more pain and damage they cause, so a simple issue can turn into something that costs significant time and money to fix.

If you’re experiencing dental discomfort, don’t delay. We’ll repair your smile and prevent further pain.

4. Your Little Ones Are Due for Dental Exams

Good dental habits begin in childhood and last a lifetime. With Halloween right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to make an appointment for your little ones. We teach your kids about keeping their teeth clean through regular brushing and flossing. Plus, early intervention for issues like teeth crowding or habits like thumb-sucking save your child and your wallet from painful corrective treatments in the future.

5. You Deserve to Show off a Beautiful Smile

Why put off the joy of a beautiful smile? Smiling has been proven to make people happier, and we could all use a little boost during this extraordinary year. From dental implants like bridges and crowns to enamel whitening and tooth repair, you deserve a smile you’re proud to show off during your Zoom meetings.
