Benjamin Franklin famously wrote, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” We think his advice applies to visiting your Billings, MT dentist for dental cleanings and exams, too!

Enjoy Your Dental Visits Without Anxiety
If dental anxiety has kept you out of the dentist’s chair for a long time, we have good news for you! For one, a teeth cleaning does not hurt. For another, you’re not alone. Around 15 million Americans avoid the dentist due to fear and anxiety. But most importantly, we have options to make you feel safe and comfortable.
Our doctors and staff members build real, lasting relationships with our patients. And as we get to know you, we’ll be able to create the environment you need to relax during your exam. You may find that our high-tech, comfortable operatories – all of which are private – may be all you need. Each room has a TV in the ceiling so that you can watch your favorite show and be distracted while we work.
If your dental anxiety needs something a little more powerful than privacy, we also offer three different types of sedation. Each operatory has free nitrous oxide, which can calm your nerves and increase your pain threshold. You can also opt for an oral sedative or even intravenous sedation. These options will safely help you relax but won’t leave you totally asleep – though some patients do wind up snoozing!
Get high-quality dental care in an environment you can trust. Call Yellowstone Family Dental at 406-206-9889 for your next dental cleaning and exam.
