Relax, we’ve got this!
Many people experience anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist. Nearly 20% of adults are so nervous about seeing a dentist that they avoid going at all!
This anxiety can be driven by fear of the unknown, past negative experiences, or just the general idea of having someone poking around in your mouth. But it’s important to remember that the longer you avoid visiting the dentist, the more your dental concerns can grow and the more anxious you may become about the visit.
At Laser Dentistry of Erie, we’re proud to offer comfortable care for those with dental anxiety. Thanks to our friendly team, high-tech care, and sedation options, we can even help you overcome your fear.

“I’ve never felt so comfortable and at ease while at a dentist. Everyone is so sweet and kind. From the time you call to make an appointment, you can tell they really care and want you to feel relaxed as possible. Dr. Starr is absolutely amazing, and I can’t say enough about the staff. I won’t ever go anywhere else!.”
