Combating Dental Anxiety Reston, VA

Some patients feel dental anxiety due to a long absence from the dentist, poor oral health, or because they have had negative past experienced with other dentists. Dr. Datta, Dr. Shaw, and Dr. Sensenbrenner take the time to educate our patients on all aspects of their oral health and any necessary dental treatments. We guide our patients through their dental procedures so they fully understand what is happening. We work with compassion and warmth to help you build your confidence in us.

For patients who experience fear of the dentist, sedation dentistry may help them overcome their anxiety. We offer sedation methods that help patients feel completely relaxed and comfortable during their dental care. Dental sedation affords patients with pain-free dentistry and little to no memory of their procedure. Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to perform more than one necessary or desired dental service at a time, saving you extra trips to the dentist.
