This is how we help with dental anxiety in your dental practice in Mannheim, Germany.

First and foremost, we proceed gently. At the first appointment, for example, there is no treatment yet. Instead, an experienced team first takes care of your wishes, ideas and fears.

The necessity and extent of the dental treatment as well as the different therapy options are discussed with you in peace.

Only when a mutual relationship of trust has been established can treatment begin. Various medications or anesthesia options will then help you to manage your fears during the treatment procedures as well.
