Dental Anxiety


With our professional background, we understand that many patients are uneasy or downright scared to visit the dentist. Dental anxiety is common, which is why Dr. John Munro and his staff are committed to building healthy relationships with patients to establish trust. We prescribe a variety of options to help put you at ease. Some options include anti-anxiety medicine and amenities to make patients feel as comfortable as possible. The level of care and comfort you’ll find at Belle Forest is unique.

We also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to reduce anxiety and ensure patients have a more pleasurable experience. Patients wear a mask to breathe in the gas during procedures. The side effects are minimal, and the effects of the gas stop when the mask is removed.

Belle Forest Dental even offers Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA) to contain numbness to anesthetize one tooth or several. That way, we don’t have to numb your entire mouth when we are only treating a smaller portion of your smile and avoid  that fat lip feeling.

Other comforting amenities include:

  • Massage chair
  • Smoothies
  • Hand wax
  • Listening to your favorite music while in the chair
