Your comfort is our priority

We realize that the dentist office can be a source of anxiety for some people. That’s why we’ve taken every measure possible to ensure comfortable dental care and a pleasant experience.

Dental care out of fear of pain or discomfortDuring every office visit we’ll explain the procedures we will be conducting. Should you experience any discomfort during your visit simply let us know how you are feeling. If you need a break, something to make you more comfortable, such as music or a drink of water, we will provide it. We want you to know that you are in control of your visit.

Our office is focused on a new era of dental treatment. You no longer have to dread or avoid dental care out of fear of pain or discomfort. We offer a variety of products and dental-care technologies that provide you with a comfortable experience.

Some procedures will require local anesthetic. In these situations a pleasant flavored gel anesthetic is gently applied to the gum area to reduce the initial pinch. To further reduce discomfort, we warm the anesthetic before injection and use the thinnest gauge needle available to lessen the pinch.

If you need further relaxation, we can gently put you at ease with nitrous oxide (laughing gas). This method is safe and causes no long-term effects.

To further make your visit as comfortable as possible, we provide comforts such as blankets, warm towels, water or juices. In addition, Dr. Potempa and his entire staff are trained in using gentle touch techniques throughout your treatment.

“Who knew going to the dentist could be so fun? I really enjoyed my paraffin wax last Friday. Marian, a special thanks for remembering our conversation and then bringing in your waxer. Also, thanks to Dr. Potempa and staff for going along with my ‘special treatment’. I loved it.”
