Do you avoid the dentist due to nerves or a past bad dental experience? If so, you are not alone, as an estimated 30 to 40 million Americans avoid visiting the dentist out of fear. At NYC Smile Spa, we specialize in treating patients with dental anxiety and phobias. Dr. Krochak, Dr. Perlman, and their entire team go out of their way to create an environment that is relaxing, safe and comfortable. The goal is to change the perception of dentistry and help nervous patients overcome their fears and phobias to visit our office and receive the care they need. Delaying hygiene examinations and needed treatments can result in additional treatments and more complex dental problems.
