Kari Ryan Dentistry

There are lots of reasons people feel nervous about coming to the dentist. Often they have had a bad experience in the past and it colors their perception of all future dentistry. The team at Kari Ryan Dentistry wants to turn your dental anxiety upside down, and we have been succeeding! Many of our patients have suffered from dental anxiety and put off care because of it – until they met us.

  • “I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that going to the dentist can be extremely stressful, however, this was by far the best experience I’ve ever had…” – D.T.
  • “I love this office. I am terrified of the dentist. Dr. R.yan, Dr. Kristi, and Lori make me feel at ease…” – A.L.
  • “Like many people, I have extreme anxiety when I go to the dentist. From the moment I walked through the door, the staff was so warm and welcoming. My anxiety was immediately diminished…” – S.B.E.
  • “I spent my first two decades with a sincere distaste for the dentist. That was before seeing the light at Kari Ryan Dentistry, of course …” – M. P.

Our relaxation method is simple – we treat every patient with the kindness, gentleness, and compassion we would treat members of our own family. We do understand that sometimes a soothing atmosphere is not enough, especially if you have:

  • A strong gag reflex
  • Trouble getting numb
  • Special needs
  • Difficulty sitting comfortably or holding your mouth open
  • Dental phobias

In those cases, and any case in which you just can’t relax and get your dental work done, we offer a selection of dental anesthesia options including:

  • Local anesthesia that even our hygienists are certified to administer
  • Anxiety (oral) medication to take the edge off and let you nap through any procedure
  • Nitrous Oxide, the classic laughing gas, for soothing relief without the downtime

Stop putting off the dentistry you deserve – discover gentle dentistry complemented by dental anesthesia and relaxation methods for dentistry you might just begin to look forward to!
