Let’s be honest: you probably don’t like coming to see the dentist. Most people don’t. But some actively put off coming due to a dental phobia or anxiety. Many people have deep fears about pain that stem from an earlier dental experience. Others fear injections and needles, or potential side effects of anesthesia. Whatever the source of your dental anxiety, here at the Chicago Osteopathic Hospital Dental Clinic PC we are very concerned about our patients and are eager to help.
When you come for a procedure or cleaning, please tell us about your fears. We can tailor treatment to your particular needs and concerns. We can have a continual, in-depth conversation about your procedure so that you feel more mentally prepared and familiar with our equipment. There have been great advances in dentistry in recent years, and most procedures are much less invasive and painful.
Some patients feel a sense of helplessness when they are in the dental chair. Others feel embarrassed from the uncomfortable proximity of the dentist or appearance of their teeth.

Your wellbeing is our top priority.
