Dr. Sarah Belderes knows that a visit to the dentist can fill many with anxiety. Some people have a phobia of dental tools; others are afraid the dentist will judge them for covering up teeth stains with whiteout. So Dr. Belderes relies on her training in cognitive behavioral psychology to alleviate the fears of her patients at Academy Dental Care.
After ensuring patients are relaxed, she performs routine checkups, preventative maintenance, and more advanced treatments, taking the time to explain everything that she's doing to further reduce anxiety.
A theme park, the DMV, and the doctor's office. Although these three are vastly different locales, they all have a single commonality: a long wait.

At the helm of this highly efficient office is Dr. Eizadi, who is known for her ability to work with children and adults with a fear of the dentist. After expunging any modicums of unfounded dread from her patients, she performs all types of preventive, cosmetic, and restorative dental treatments.
The Center's stylish and modern office further lulls clients into a relaxed state, boasting a treatment room with its own ocean view and living, breathing Kenny G clone. Rooms also feature headphones and state-of-the-art intraoral cameras.
