Our mission at Buxton Family Dental is to meet the general needs of patients young and old in a safe and comfortable environment.  Our top priority is to make each of your visits a pleasant one from start to finish.  (Our many patient testimonials are proof of this! Google, Facebook, RateABiz)  Here are a few of the ways we show that comfort is our main concern:

  • Comfortable Settings – For fearful patients, sometimes waiting for the appointment to begin is the worst part!  Relax in our comfortable reception area, enjoy a magazine or movie, and help yourself to a beverage (coffee, hot cocoa, bottled water, etc.)
  • Customized Treatment – Each patient is different.  Let us know what will help you relax the most.  We have blankets, pillows, overhead televisions and headphones, etc.  Help us find what makes you most comfortable and we’ll try to remember it each time you visit.
  • Gentle Anesthesia – Nobody likes a shot!  We use strong topical anesthetic gels to start things off better, we warm our anesthetics, and we use a gentle approach to make the numbing process as painless as possible.
  • Sedation Dentistry – Some people need a little extra help relaxing in the dental chair and sedation dentistry is the perfect solution.  Sedation comes in several forms and we can help determine which is appropriate for you level of dental anxiety.  Go here to learn more about sedation and your options.

If there is anything else we can do to make you comfortable when under our care, please be sure to let us know!
