Avoiding the Dentist | 50th and France Dental Care

At 50th and France Dental Care, we understand that patients stay away from the dentist for a number of reasons. 

Some of the most common concerns we hear include:

  1. I am afraid of the dentist.
  2. It does not work in my schedule.
  3. Dentistry is too expensive.

A recent survey came out that shows the dentist as being the number one health care provider that people would like to see more often because they recognize the importance of good oral health. They also state that taking care of their oral health builds their confidence. You can check out the survey results here.

At 50th and France Dental Care, we want to make it easy to get the dental care you need to maintain a healthy smile, pleasant breath, and comfortable teeth.

Here are some of our solutions that make it easy for the patients of Edina to get the family dentistry they need for a healthy smile:

Solution #1 – Our team is gentle and compassionate; plus, we offer sedation dentistry.

In most cases, patients feel completely comfortable in our office because everyone is kind, gentle, and experienced. Occasionally, however, we encounter a patient who still feels so nervous that they often dread their dental appointments and may miss them regularly, putting their oral health at risk.

For those patients, we offer sedation dentistry – a way to completely relax during dental treatment.

Solution #2 – We offer convenient before- and after-work appointment times. 

Early morning and evening appointments make it easier for our patients to work around their busy schedules. This includes getting care for your kids, which can pose a challenge when it comes to other activities such as soccer, band, or clubs.

Solution #3 – Preventive dentistry is more affordable than you might think.

You can often avoid higher dental treatment costs simply by staying on track with your preventive dental treatments. Dental exams, cleanings, x-rays, fluoride, and sealants are all a fraction of the cost of more serious treatment and are the best insurance policy to protect your smile.

When you do need more extensive treatment, patient financing will help you fit it into your budget.
