The Key To Overcoming Fear Of The Dentist? Choosing The Right Practice

Expert Care, Compassionate Staff
When you’re choosing a dentist’s office, one of the first things you’ll want to know is that the care you’re going to receive will be top-notch.
At Houston Uptown Dentists, Dr. Juarez and Dr. Lindskog have track records of educational and professional excellence. Both doctors completed their undergraduate degrees at Texas A&M and went on to earn their Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
Since then, both women have remained committed to growing in their craft. Dr. Juarez and Dr. Lindskog stay abreast of the latest technological and technical advances with hundreds of hours of continuing education courses.
Plus, Dr. Lindskog was voted Texas Academy of General Dentistry’s Texas New Dentist of the Year in 2016! The honor is given to dentists who have been in practice for up to seven years.
We’ve also built up a team of compassionate professionals who take pride in the high-quality care they provide.
We feel like a family here at Houston Uptown Dentists, and we hope that you’ll feel at home here as well! We’re a privately owned practice, so when you come in for appointments, you’ll see the same familiar faces each time.
We also want to take the time to get to know you and make sure you feel comfortable with every step of your care. If you have questions, we’ll talk you through your procedure so you can take ownership of your own dental health!
You can even request an extended appointment so you don’t feel rushed.
Comfort Amenities And Dental Sedation
We understand that sometimes it takes more than calm, compassionate professionals to help you feel comfortable at the dentist’s office. That’s why we’ve created a physical space that encourages relaxation!
Our reception area is warm with comfy chairs and a refreshment area so you can unwind before or after your appointment. And once you’re called back for your appointment, you’ll notice that our examination rooms boast views of the city.
You can also sit back and relax during your treatment! You can catch up on your favorite Netflix show via personal movie glasses or listen to calming sounds during your dental work. Either way, distraction has been proven to help with dental anxiety.
And if you want to further relieve stress and discomfort, you can opt for dental sedation. At Houston Uptown Dentists, we offer three types of dental sedation:
- Nitrous oxide. This fast-acting dental sedative is commonly referred to as “laughing gas.” You inhale it through a small mask placed over your nose, and it produces a mild euphoria.
- Conscious oral sedation. This form of sedation is administered in the form of a pill. You’ll take it before your appointment, and by the time it’s time for the dental work, you’ll feel relaxed.
- IV sedation. This is the deepest form of sedation we offer. It’s administered directly into the bloodstream, and it’s easy for us to monitor your sedation levels and vital signs throughout your procedure. IV sedation makes you feel like you’re dreaming, and it’ll minimize what you remember of your dental work afterward.
Stress-Free Payment Options
We believe that you shouldn’t have to stress about paying for your dental care, so we offer convenient payment options. We accept all major credit cards, checks, cash, and CareCredit.
We can also create a payment plan for more extensive treatments! Plus, you won’t have to worry about filing insurance claims after your procedure is over. We’ll do that for you!
