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.
Some of the ways they do so 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 equipment of yesteryear
- Plenty of noninvasive solutions to improve your smile’s appearance and health

We Relieve Anxiety Through Comfort & Consideration
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.
You’ll find it easy to relax with Dr. Farrell, who is a great storyteller 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.
Our team will also take time to discuss payment options with you. Anxiety over insurance and other payment plans can cause some patients to avoid the dentist, but we’re here to help in that department as well.
