There are a lot of reasons people avoid going to the dentist. Some people are scared of getting treatment. Others haven't been in for so long, they're scared of what they might find. Maybe their gums bleed when they brush their teeth or floss, or maybe when they eat popcorn or chips. They could be worried this is an early sign of gum disease. But studies have shown the number one reason people put off their dental care has nothing to do with fear or pain. It has to do with the guilt of putting off the dentist, that people keep putting it off because they're afraid to get lectured by the doctor and staff. At our office, we don't lecture our patients as to why they haven't seen a dentist. We just want our patients to get better. Come see what makes us different.
