We understand if going to the dentist isn’t your favorite thing to do. For some patients with prior bad experiences or fears, dental appointments can be intimidating. But we don’t believe it should be that way. Dr. Srinivasan provides pleasant dental care experiences for our patients using gentle dentistry techniques.
Getting to Know You
Before beginning any dental procedures, Dr. Srinivasan will take the time to get to know you and make sure that you feel comfortable. She will never rush into treatment before you have had the chance to get to know our staff and to speak with her about any concerns, so that you can feel confident and relaxed about your appointment.
If you are particularly fearful of seeing a dentist, we can discuss the possibility of administering nitrous oxide gas during your procedure. Also known as “laughing gas” nitrous oxide is a light form of sedation that is breathed in through the nose and easily expelled following treatment so that you may drive home and return to normal activities immediately.

The Art of Distraction
Sometimes simply taking your mind off what is taking place can ease the nerves and put you in a more relaxed state of mind. For your entertainment, we have television sets in our treatment rooms where you are free to watch programs as a mental escape during your dental procedure.
If you are interested in how Dr. Srinivasan can apply a gentle approach to your dental care needs, call us for an introduction to our friendly staff or to make an appointment.
