overcoming fear and dental anxiety

Not everyone looks forward to their dental visits. And for some, spending even a minute in the dental chair is cause for alarm. Yet without regular dental care, it can become impossible to treat patients with small dental issues before more serious consequences emerge.

Going to the dentist regularly is one of the best ways to support a healthier lifestyle by improving the balance between oral and overall health. When you need a gentle dentist in Mandeville, Dr. Charles Schof looks forward to caring for you in a calming and relaxing environment.
