Dental Phobia Elk Grove, CA

Afraid of the Dentist?

Many people are less than enthusiastic about dental care. However, for some people, even the thought of visiting a dentist causes anxiety. If you avoid dental care due to a fear of needles or you have a dental phobia, it could negatively affect your health and smile. At Laguna West Dental Care, we understand that dental treatments can be uncomfortable for some of our patients with dental fear or anxiety. We do our best to ease those fears and provide a relaxing, safe environment for our patients.

Many times, dental anxiety stems from a bad experience. Not all dentists and dental professionals are the same, and one bad apple can leave a lasting negative impression on the entire profession. Our dental team members at Laguna West Dental Care are dedicated to providing compassionate, gentle dental care to each of our patients. We never rush patients or ask them to endure anything that makes them overly uncomfortable. Our patient-centric approach will help put you at ease and make your visits to our office less stressful.

Sedation Options for Dental Anxiety

While we strive to help our patients feel relaxed with our friendly atmosphere, we know some patients need more than a reassuring smile. Our office offers nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation for those with dental phobia or anxiety to help them relax during dental treatments. When our patients are calm and comfortable under sedation, we can perform our treatments more efficiently. Knowing you are relaxed and at ease makes it easier for us to provide you with the best quality dental care. Ask about our sedation options when you schedule your next visit.

Do not let a fear of dental care stop you from maintaining a healthy, gorgeous smile. Laguna West Dental Care is your source in the Elk Grove area for gentle, compassionate dental care with sedation dentistry available. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment for you or a family member.

Suzanne B.

As I was walking to my car after my appointment I thought, I sure am happy I come here. I get warm friendly service and gentle, thorough care throughout my visit. Dr. Chan and his staff are the best.

Jennifer B.

We've been so very happy with Dr. You and his staff since we moved to Sacramento in 1985! We've followed him to the current location in Laguna...he and his staff take such good care of all our dental needs. I have no hesitation in recommending their services!

Stephanie O.

In my 65 years on the planet, and hundreds of hours in former dentists' offices, Dr. You and his staff are by far the best I've ever encountered. My very recent crown replacement was 100 percent pain free! All phases of treatment, from removal of the old crown, mold taking and making, to the permanent placement with my brand new well-matched molar, was seamless. I respect and applaud Laguna West Dental Care for taking such talented care of me.

Janet S.

Since retiring, I drive and hour and a half each way to continue to see Dr. You and his entire staff ... and I hate to drive. No better dentist and hygenists in Sacramento and I have tried others over the years. Thank you for a great experience each and every time Laguna West!

Norman H.

In my 50+ years, I've probably had 7 to 8 dentists and have had my share of bad experiences that made me fearful of going to the dentist. But, after switching to Dr. Chan in 1991, I really couldn't be happier and don't dread dental appointments anymore. Dr. Chan is gentle and exceptionally good at giving shots that I can barely feel. He even calls me in the evening after every procedure to make sure I'm doing okay. The staff is friendly and caring and the facilities are nice. Highly recommended.

Carol D.

We've been patients of Dr. You and Dr. Chan since my son was in kindergarten - now a County employee. Everyone on the staff is great. I had one bad experience with a dentist referred by my insurance co. - I'd NEVER see a dentist again without a personal referral. Consider this mine to you -- Laguna West is an excellent choice!
