TANZINA AHSAN: A lot of people do have that first dental anxiety, just the fear of the unknown. DR. RICCIARDI: They need a warm, comforting atmosphere to alleviate those stresses and fears sometimes. And I believe this is the type of office that people can come into and really feel at home. A lot of their fears stem from bad childhood experiences. And once they realize that dentistry has changed over the course of the years and for the better then a lot of their fears get alleviated. DR. STANISLAUS: It is really gratifying when I can take a patient, first of all who has anxiety about coming to the dentist, who is ashamed about coming. Tell them, hey, there are no judgments being made here; it is something that is a very, very common. I tell them no matter how bad they think their problem is that every problem has a solution in dentistry. And that is really gratifying.
