At Infinity Dental Care we help many patients overcome their Dental Phobia, Dr Jack and the entire team understand that dental phobia is real and can be truly scary, we understand that there is more than just a little fear when it comes to letting someone you hardly know into your mouth.

That is why our goal is to always make sure you are comfortable, not only comfortable with the treatment you receive but also comfortable with the people delivering the service, to give you a great personal experience.

To help overcome your Dental Phobia we first have to understand why.  There are many reasons why, but here are the five most common we see at Infinity Dental Care.

  1. A Bad Dental Experience as a child
  2. Pre-existing Anxiety Disorder
  3. Lack of Control
  4. Bad Teeth
  5. Biological Mechanisms

  • Acknowledge the issue
  • Figure out why
