One of the things that I do that helps deal with that is use any opportunity I can to share some exquisite humor. Storyteller—I think I was a storyteller long before I was a dentist. If you're a caregiver, you just figure it out, you take care of them, and they get it pretty quick. So that’s why I need them in the chair, I need them in my office, and then we just start the relationship and put it together. Clinically, financially, insurance, that's kinda the category. You talk to them. That’s what we all want as people: we want our folks to talk to us, we want the people that love us to talk to us.
Many people have a phobia of visiting the dentist, usually due to a bad experience in the past. It’s been estimated that 9 to 15 percent of Americans avoid the dentist due to fear and anxiety. This can result in delayed care or deferred maintenance, which can actually lead to more intense dental problems.

Call 607-304-3993 with any questions or to schedule your stress-free visit today.
Relieving Your Dental Anxiety Through Comfort And Consideration
There are many ways Dr. Farrell and our staff soothe you while you’re receiving treatment. For starters, Dr. Farrell is a great storyteller who you’ll enjoy spending time with. He builds real relationships with our patients, and he will make time to do the same for you and your family.
We also provide patient-friendly treatments to help your smile. These include:
- Safe oral sedation to ensure you feel no discomfort, pain, or stress during any procedure
- Fast digital X-rays, which are much safer than traditional X-rays and inform us of the best ways to care for you
- Modern dental equipment that is much more comfortable than the dental tools of yesteryear
- Plenty of noninvasive solutions to improve your smile’s appearance and health
Dr. Jerry Farrell will also take time to discuss payment options with you to make your life easier. Anxiety over dealing with insurance and other payment plans can cause some patients to avoid the dentist, but we’re here to help in that department, as well.
After receiving his Doctor of Dental Medicine from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1982, Dr. Jerry Farrell went on to start a private practice of his own in Johnson City, NY. Over time, he has had many achievements like the fellowship, International College of Craniomandibular Orthopaedics (ICCMO), certification in Invisalign orthodontic treatment, and more.
