Could it be a good idea to have a side-by-side premolar and molar done at separate visits for dental implant placement to reduce patient anxiety?

In brief: No

Once the implant is placed, you do not want to disturb the site until it heals, which can be three months or more.
Performing an additional, unnecessary surgery may traumatize the first implant. Do them both at the same time: take anti-anxiety meds if you must, or discuss getting put to sleep if necessary. All the best...

In brief: One appointment!

Safe Intravenous (IV) sedation is available in most offices which puts you in a very relaxed state for anxiety free dental visit and implants placement.
.Moreover, advancements in technology have made it possible where in many situations the teeth can be placed on the dental implants immediately allowing the patient to leave the surgery with teeth in place.

In brief: Probably not.

Once you have performed the invasive procedure your patient can feel a sigh of relief.
If this person has a normal range of endogenous anxiety he will be fine with doing both molars at the same time. Especially if you use the various methods of sedation dentistry.
