P3 Dental of Northeast Philadelphia's dentists and hygienists know that for many people, the biggest problem they carry into the office isn't a cavity or cracked tooth. It's feelings of fear and anxiety. The teeth experts go to great lengths to make patients as comfortable as possible, starting by filling their office with flowers and paintings. They also walk patients through every step of a treatment, whether it's a standard checkup or a more in-depth procedure to address gum recession. Plus, they encourage patients to bring along MP3 players or pocket-size orchestras, and they can use sedation if necessary.
Perhaps the best way P3 Dental puts patients at ease is by working with children as young as 5, ensuring that their very first memories of the dentist are not scary. Aside from children's dentistry, P3 Dental specializes in cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening and Lumineers.
