Excellent service! I had terrible anxiety about dentist offices from a poor experience when I was a kid. I ended up not going to the dentist for many years as an adult, resulting in many problems. Ultimately, one day, I had a dental emergency and found Bridgetown Dental, who got me in immediately. I had so much fear about dentist offices that I was tearful during the initial consult. However, Dr. Kaady never shamed me for my worry. He was kind, explained everything about the procedure, and took the time to make me feel like he cared about my teeth and experience. I totally survived the cavity-filling! He asked if I would return (I had a lot more cavities) and start regular cleanings. Five years later, I am still a patient here! Valerie, who cleans my teeth, is wonderful! Everyone here is exceptional, professional, and friendly. I decline to go anywhere else. Bridgetown Dental cured my dentist office anxiety, and I highly recommend them!
We’re excited to unveil our new website and accompanying Bridgetown Dental blog. Our goal is to keep you informed and entertained in between your regular dental cleanings and exams. As always, if you have any questions about your dental care or need to make an appointment, just give us a call at 503-809-4742 and we’ll be glad to help.
For this first edition of our new blog, we’re highlighting some of the things about our practice that help us stand apart from the rest. Happy reading!
We Take a Holistic Approach to Your Health
Our team understands that the mouth is the gateway to the rest of the body. It’s hard to have a healthy body if you have problems with your teeth and gums. When we examine your mouth, we’re taking into account how oral problems can affect the rest of your body. We work with a network of professionals who we can call upon if needed to help us diagnose any symptoms you’re having for sleep apnea, TMJ disorders, and more. In this way, we address your entire body’s health, not just focusing on your mouth. You’ll get better care and a better outcome!
You Can Relax With Your Choice of Sedation Options
Some of our patients are simply too nervous to lie back comfortably in the dental chair. For this reason, we offer you not just one but two great sedation options to help you relax. For mild dental anxiety, we recommend inhaled sedation with laughing gas. It will give you a light feeling of euphoria and take your mind off dental work. For more severe dental phobia, we’ll prescribe a small pill that you’ll take before your appointment. It will make you feel very relaxed and perhaps a bit groggy. You may not even remember much about your procedure afterward.
You’ll Benefit From Advanced Technology
We know that we need to have the latest dental technology on hand to provide you the best treatment possible. With that in mind, we’ve invested in equipment like digital X-rays, dental lasers, and a 3-D cone beam CT scanner. This equipment ensures that your diagnoses are accurate and your treatments are as precise and efficient as possible. We think you’ll appreciate the difference that makes!
