Anxious Patients

Feeling anxious about your next dental visit? Our dedicated Toronto dentists at Riverdale Dental will make you feel as comfortable as possible at every appointment. We can help ease your anxiety with sedation options that include laughing gas, oral sedation, and full sedation.

Nervous about the Dentist?

At Riverdale Dental, we understand that a trip to the dentist may cause anxiety in some of our Toronto patients.

Our goal is to help alleviate that anxiety in hopes that it doesn't prevent you from visiting the dentist as this may deter you from maintaining your best oral health.

At Riverdale Dental, we strive to maintain a warm and inviting dental environment for you and your family.

If you're nervous about visiting the dentist, please let our reception team know when you book your first dental appointment.

Our staff has been helping nervous patients with their dental anxiety for years, and we will do everything we can to ensure that you feel comfortable throughout your appointment.

In each of our exam rooms, we offer relaxing music for you to listen to throughout your appointment.

For the majority of our anxious patients, this added touch can greatly help in alleviating stress and feelings of anxiety.

Understanding Your Treatment

Our entire dental team is committed to taking the time in explaining details of all of your dental procedures before they begin, so you will have a solid understanding of the treatment we are recommending.

We welcome your questions and we encourage you to ask as many questions as you want, until you are fully comfortable to proceed with your appointment.

Prior to your appointment, we may discuss some signals that you can give to our dentists to communicate that you need a break or would like to stop at any time during your visit.
