So one of the things that we offer to patients that we hardly hear of at all is a comfort menu. And what it is, it's been a compilation of what patients have come and asked for. They've said, "Hey, I have a sore neck, " so if you have somebody that you know has a sore neck, let's get them a nice, warm, soft pillow. And they're cold, because we keep it cool in the dental office because we have to wear all kinds of protective gear. Let's give them a nice warm polar fleece blanket. They said, "Oh, I can't eat for two or three hours after my appointment. I could love a milkshake. " What flavors do you like? So we have milkshake. We have sunglasses to keep the bright lights out of your eyes. We have all kinds of things, whatever they want, and that list will probably keep growing. And it's great, because we love to make people happy.
How Can Sedation Dentistry Relieve My Dental Anxiety?
Sedation dentistry relieves your dental anxiety by calming you during your procedure. Nitrous oxide will give you sensations of joy, and oral sedation will make you feel relaxed by the time you arrive for your appointment. IV sedation will put you in a dreamlike state, so you’ll be at ease during your procedure and have fewer memories of it once you return home. The less you remember, the less likely you are to feel anxious about your next treatment.

Our dental office uses Dr. Roeder’s special sting-free local anesthesia formula. So, there’s no need to fear the needle when you come in for your visit.
Our dentists also have completed numerous hours of advanced training, so they can offer you less invasive techniques like the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique that treats gum recession without cutting or sutures.Patrick M. on Dr. Roeder helping him overcome his anxiety and reconstruct his smile Read Transcript
I've always struggled with the dentist. I've been at dentists all over the country. I don't like dentists or doctors. And when I came here, you actually felt like part of the family. Everybody from when you walk in the door til when you leave makes you feel comfortable. And like I said, I was always nervous to go to the dentist and the way he explains things, his approach to dentistry is much different than any other dentist. And that's why, even when I've lived out of Pennsylvania, I've came back to him. Once I came to Dr. Roeder, I've never left. So, if I was living in Ohio and I need dental work done, I come to Pennsylvania.
I had all my teeth replaced on the top. So, I used to come in and get root canals and then finally I made the decision to get a full upper mouth replacement. I didn't feel a thing. And what was weirder about it was, even when I went home, like you'd think that if somebody pulls all your teeth, you're going to be sore. Nothing.
I should have done it 30 years ago. I mean, if you struggle with the dentist, if you have good teeth, you don't understand it. But if you have work that needs to be done and you're always fretting about the dentist or nervous, it runs your life.
He has definitely changed my outlook on it. And it doesn't matter what level of income. You can be rich, you can be poor. If you have teeth problems, you have the same anxiety as everybody else. And he completely took that away.
Out of all the dentists I've seen, I'll never change.
