Serving patients from across East Dallas including Lakewood, White Rock and Lake Highlands, Dr. Kelli Slate has built an excellent reputation for first class dental care. She is especially well known in dental circles for her commitment to dealing with anxiety before treatment and reducing the discomfort associated with dental injections.
In Dr. Kelli Slate’s own words,
Why suffer anxiety in the waiting room before your dental treatment begins or indeed be subjected to uncomfortable treatment? This really isn’t necessary. Dentistry has progressed so much in the last ten years, and several options are available to help patients. Not enough dentists appear to focus on this comfort oriented aspect of dental care for their patients
Skill in dentistry is not just about being technically proficient, as important as this may be, it is also about patient comfort. I want to make sure, in our dental office in East Dallas, that all our patients receive skilled treatment and comfortable care.
It is not only children but adults also suffer anxiety at their dentist. Nobody likes the thought of receiving an injection, young or old. For example, if you ask parents what concerns them most about bringing their child to the dentist, they will say they do not want their child to feel the shot. We often hear after a child or an adult receives an injection, “I didn’t feel a thing”. Hearing this from patients is the best reward we could receive
This is certainly true, because a quick look at the reviews left by patients left by patients makes it clear that Dr. Slate and all her staff work very carefully on caring for those who worry about dental injections. This also shows how word has spread on Facebook and other social media that she cares.
As Dr. Kelli Slate points out,
We listen to our patients at Dr. Slate’s dental practice in Lakewood; all of the dental staff is trained and aware of this issue of focus on patient comfort. This makes a big difference and once patients have had their first appointment they feel confident to return.
Our dental team works diligently to ease the stress, worries and anxiety that patients may have. Patients appreciate our techniques which often include a combination of topical anesthetic, laughing gas and warm dental anesthetic. These are often delivered without any discomfort at all.
