If you avoid visiting the dentist because of dental anxiety, you are not the only one. Many patients skip their biannual dental checkups because they fear the dentist. Manage your dental anxiety and avoid poor oral health by visiting our Inwood, WV dentist office. Dr. Kenneth Banks and our entire dental care team are compassionate professionals that strive to make our dentist office a welcoming and comfortable place to rejuvenate and restore your best smile.
Avoiding dental care can make getting dental care feel even more overwhelming. Biannual preventative dental checkups can help keep the teeth and gums healthy and may deter the need for advanced restorative dentistry. If you have been away from the dentist for many years, Dr. Banks enjoys welcoming new patients to our dental care family. Our friendly and understanding staff can help you restore the health, function, and beauty of your smile with state of the art cosmetic, restorative and general dentistry.
Compassionate Modern Dental Care
At Smile Designs of the Shenandoah Valley, our first priority is the comfort and well-being of our patients. We take a personalized approach making sure that our patients feel heard. We often find that patients experiencing dental anxiety feel much more relaxed after speaking with Dr. Banks and our staff. We take the time to explain every necessary procedure and will listen to your concerns and answer your dental care questions.
Dr. Banks uses high-quality materials and state of the art dental techniques and technology. Our modern dentist office has procedures that less invasive and less uncomfortable than traditional treatments. Laser dentistry, CEREC and sedation dentistry all make receiving dental care more efficient, effective and less invasive.
Sedation Dentistry Options
For some patients, fear of the dentist can make it difficult to receive the care they need. For patients experiencing severe dental fear, Dr. Banks may recommend sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry allows patients to remain awake but completely relaxed during treatment.
