Fear of the dentist is a common among the non-dental population, it is something that we confront and work with on a daily basis. Having come to expect that certain patients may be truly afraid of making an appointment to have a root canal has made us better equipped to deal with these fears.
I have heard somewhere along the line that patients have 3 major fears about going to the dentist: time, money, and pain. Let’s look at each of these separately.
Thank you for visiting our website and blog. This is new for us and I am sure we will be making mistakes along the way, but no doubt all of the “experts” tell us that communication with our patients and referring dentists is a sure way to stay connected to the folks we work with and provide services for.
In our first post I thought I would start by telling you what type of content you can expect to find when you visit our blog. This is the site for Allen Endodontic Group and Jacqueline Allen, D.D.S., M.S. is the primary doctor in our practice. Dr. Allen does have a supporting cast which includes me, Kevin Conroy, Dr. Allen’s husband and CEO of Allen Endodontic Group. I will be the primary author of content on this site – I am NOT a dentist – I possess a business background and handle all functions related to administration in our two locations.
