Dental Sedation: Talking To Loved Ones

Do you have a friend or family member who is absolutely, 100 percent afraid to get dental care? Do you immediately think to yourself, “Oh, I can help! I can explain about dental sedation” only to wonder if this is an appropriate thing to do? Perhaps you want to explain your experience because you also deal with anxiety when it comes to dental care but you can’t seem to find the right way to talk about it. Don’t worry. We can help you!

Describe The Options We Offer

First, remember that offering factual information can be helpful. Instead of just saying that you know a practice that offers dental sedation, lay out the details. Explain that we offer nitrous oxide, oral sedation, oral sedation and nitrous oxide, and IV sedation.

Talk About How Sedation Makes You Feel

It’s one thing for your friend or loved one to hear that dental sedation helps with relaxing or that it “makes dental anxiety go away.” However, a true account from a trusted friend in your own words can be very impactful. Talk about your experience! It might help your friend feel more secure about seeking dental care.

Offer Our Contact Information

While offering to set up a dental visit on behalf of a friend or loved one who is listening to your information about dental sedation probably won’t go over very well, you can simply offer our contact information. Let others know about our practice and hand over our website and phone number. You can then feel like you did your best to help without coming across as pushy!
