|Q. If being put to sleep is inadvisable, how can I cope with my fear of dental work?
A. Let us help you.
Being sedated does not help you conquer your fear of dental procedures. You will still fear and avoid the dentist's office after dental work is done under sedation. Without proper cleaning and checkups the work you've had done will fail prematurely.
We know many people think they can't overcome their fear of the dentist, but if you are motivated to improve your dental health and appearance, we can help you overcome your fear.
Dr. Michael Krochak has been specializing in the treatment of patients with varying levels of dental phobia for over 25 years.

We have helped patients who have had dental phobia from childhood overcome their fears, with expert care, minimization of pain and discomfort, and the attention of our supportive and caring staff. This is the sound way to make your dentist visits a positive experience, without fear and with the knowledge that you are improving yourself.
In our practice, we often invite patients to just stop by and meet the staff and see the office. Dr. Krochak can usually give you a quick hello as well, so you can get a "feel" for the environment and personalities this way. With modern dental technology, it's never to late to regain your oral health and have an attractive smile again.
