How One Patient Overcame Dental Fear and Restore His Mouth {VIDEO}

Fear is a powerful tool. It can make us think illogically or keep us from things that are absolutely necessary. Our St. Charles, IL dental staff understands that dental fear is a major problem in this country.

It’s not uncommon for people with dental fear to try drastic home remedies or resort to eating on only one side of the mouth. They’ll try just about anything to avoid the problem — or a dental office.
