There are many people that suffer from dental anxiety or phobia. A lot more than you may realize. Most people are so frightened by visiting a dental office that they will choose not to receive necessary treatment. This means that people are refusing treatment for a cavity, infection or other disease that is causing problems. This is not a good idea at all. Leaving diseases or other infections in your mouth without doing anything about it will allow said diseases or infections to spread. Our Ocean City, MD office wants you to have a wonderful smile, as well as excellent oral health. At Delmarva Sedation Dentistry, we want you to know that there are ways to receive treatment without ever feeling any pain or discomfort. Not only is Dr. Dougherty a licensed IV and Oral Sedation dentist, but he’s also a dental sedation examiner for the Maryland Board of Dental Examiners. He knows how much dental phobia can affect a patient’s psyche, which is why he cares about your particular situation.
