Emotional Well Being

Mission Viejo Dentist - OMD Emotional Wellbeing

Fear is a very common reason for avoiding the dental office. This fear sometimes stems from past experiences, but it can also stem from a lack of information about dental procedures or the dental experience as a whole.

At Oso Marguerite Dental, we take a gentle approach to dental care, helping to alleviate fears and assist our patients in feeling confident with their care. Our focus is on your well-being and satisfaction, and we do all we can to develop a relationship, earn your trust and assist you in overcoming anxieties about your dental procedures.

At your first visit with Oso Marguerite Dental, our team spends time getting to know you. Feel free to ask questions, discuss your concerns and goals and get involved in your dental care. Our goal is always to answer them, provide the information you need and ensure a stress-free, positive dental experience.

As dental care is never a one-time affair, the Oso Marguerite Dental team always works to keep the lines of communication open, fully explaining treatment options and making recommendations for the least invasive, most cost effective procedures based on your individual needs. We empower our clients with the information they need to make educated decisions so they can become their own health care advocates and feel confident with our care.

The most effective way to reduce time in the dental chair and decrease the need for future procedures is by keeping your own, natural teeth. The Oso Marguerite Dental team is committed to working with each patient toward reaching this goal, and we provide the tools and information needed to keep your smile brilliant and healthy for a lifetime.

When more extensive treatments are necessary, patients can depend on the Oso Marguerite Dental professionals to use local anesthesia, patience, thoughtful skills and innovative dental technology to keep them comfortable and confident while in our care.

Thank you for putting your trust in Oso Marguerite Dental. It is our sincerest goal to develop a long-term, mutually satisfying relationship with you and always support your emotional well-being along the way. Call us to learn more about our practice or schedule your initial consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I visit Oso Marguerite Dental before my treatment to ask questions and get more comfortable?

    At Oso Marguerite Dental, it is our goal to keep you comfortable throughout every treatment. In most cases, we are happy to meet with you before your treatment to evaluate your mouth, diagnose your condition and discuss treatment options. Your procedure can then be scheduled for a later date. In an emergency situation, we may advise evaluation and treatment on the same day, but we promise to still give you time to ask questions and feel comfortable before any procedure begins.

  • Are there any distractions you recommend in the dental chair to help me feel more comfortable?

    Oso Marguerite Dental invites patients to bring earbuds or headphones and listen to music during their treatments. Feel free to bring your music player and a selection of favorite songs to help drown out the sound of any equipment and make your visit more enjoyable.

  • How can I help protect my child’s emotional well being in the dental chair?

    Children are excellent at following their parents’ lead when it comes to feeling comfortable in the dental chair. Remind your child that the dentist at Oso Marguerite Dental is a professional who is there to help them stay healthy and feel comfortable. Encourage your child to ask age appropriate questions and express any concerns while visiting Oso Marguerite Dental. For very young children, it is also often helpful to get the child used to the idea of visiting Oso Marguerite Dental before their visit. Brush their teeth at home, show them what it is like to have a dentist open their mouth and touch their teeth and consider reading books or watching a show about visiting the dentist. Finally, ask any questions you have during the visit because your level of comfort will translate to a more comfortable visit for your child too.

  • I would like to schedule a consult to help me feel comfortable in your office. Can this be arranged?
