Are you someone who fears visiting the dentist? Does the noise, smell or even the thought of visiting the dental clinic caused you to delay scheduling an appointment? If you are delaying a trip to the dentist due to a negative past experience, then we can help lessen your dental anxiety at Uptown Fort McMurray Dental.
Let Our Experience Be Your Guide
Through the use of oral medications or IV sedation, patients can now have their dental needs addressed in a stress free environment. Let us help you change your mind about a visit to the dentist. We encourage you to take that important first step and give us a call to schedule your appointment.
Step 1. Make Your Initial Appointment
We are here to answer all your questions and help you feel at ease for your first visit at our office.
Step 2. Your First Visit
Our staff welcomes the opportunity to get to know you, and to ensure that the procedure is structured around what is comfortable for you. If sedation will be required to complete your dental treatment, we will provide the best option for you. You will meet with your dentist and discuss a treatment plan. We will provide you with pre-operative instructions to make sure you are fully prepared for your appointment. We will then book the appointments according to a schedule that suits your busy lifestyle.
Step 3. Arriving for Treatment
A responsible adult must accompany you the day of your appointment. Your health and comfort are extremely important to us.
Step 4. Going Home
Due to the lingering relaxed sedative state, an escort will be necessary to drive you home. Any post-treatment instructions or necessary medications required for you will be left with the driver, in order to ensure that you are at ease at the conclusion of your procedure.
