Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
Are you afraid of the dentist? You’re not alone. In fact, recent studies have found as much as 30 percent of the population avoids seeing a dentist for general dental services due to fear and anxiety. If 30 percent of the population is afraid of receiving general dental services, logical extension would suggest that at least 30 percent are also afraid of receiving cosmetic dental treatments. This is unfortunate on many levels. The quality of your smile is one of the first things people notice about you.
