Visit the office: If it is a new office, visit it first, meet the team, explain your concern. We offer conscious oral sedation for high anxiety patients and most times, they only have the sedation once and feel completely comfortable after they have experienced the initial treatment, realizing that dentistry has changed and is easier than the anxious patient recalled it to be. We've converted many a dental phobic!
