tooth-colored_fillings_2 | Dr. Jennifer Perkins, DDS

It’s hard to believe how comfortable you have become about dental care. You no longer hesitate to make your appointments for routine cleanings. You’re even thinking about trying some cosmetic services to improve your smile.

Making that phone call to the office of Jennifer Perkins, DDS, has done a lot to ease your dental anxiety. Meeting a team of dental professionals who make your comfort a priority has made a world of difference in your oral health …

If you have avoided the dentist for years out of fear or anxiety, we welcome you to call our office in Huntsville, AL. You can reach us at 256-801-0002. One call could be just what you need to feel good about dental care!

Put Your Mind At Ease

Dental anxiety affects millions of people in the United States. By some estimates as many as 3 out of every 4 people experience anxiety about dental care to some degree. For a smaller group, this fear makes it nearly impossible to step foot in a dental office.

If you are one of them, we want to help you learn to manage those feelings. You can’t overcome anxiety overnight, but you can chip away at it one appointment, one cleaning at a time. We know because we’ve seen it happen with many of our patients over the years.

You may find that our office is very different than what you expect a dental practice to be, especially if you haven’t seen a dentist in years.

We’ll offer you something to drink. We’ll gladly let you borrow a pillow and a blanket, so you feel cozy and warm. And if you have a show you’d like to watch as a distraction during your cleaning, we’ll turn on our in-room television for you.

And if you have any questions at any time, please feel free to ask. Knowing what’s happening may be just what you need to feel more at ease receiving the dental care that you deserve.

Ask About Sedation Dentistry

As nice as our comfort items can be, you may be one of our patients who needs a little more help relaxing at the office. That’s perfectly fine and perfectly understandable. It’s why we offer dental sedation.

Dr. Perkins can provide you with a dose of medication to take prior to your appointment. This oral sedation will help you feel relaxed by the time you are ready to sit in the dental chair. The medicine will help you remain calm and prevent you from feeling pain during your procedure. If you are sedated, you can rest assured that we will monitor you closely throughout your visit.

Keep in mind that the effects of oral sedation can last for a few hours. Knowing this, you should arrange for someone else to bring you to and from your appointment if you do choose sedation dentistry.

Dr. Perkins and our team have been helping patients in and around Huntsville for years. We would be honored to help you, too. Just call 256-801-0002 or contact us online to learn more about our approach to patient comfort.
