Finally, A Positive Dental Patient Experience

Best dental patient experience

We help patients erase dental phobias by offering new-age dental care focused on making patients smile 

At Macleod Trail Dental, we are all about providing the best dental patient experience possible and banish common dental phobias by offering a future-forward, spa-like experience for your smile. We treat each patient like a part of our extended family, creating a non-judgmental, kind, and compassionate environment.

Regular Dental Experience VS Macleod Trail Dental Experience 

Our team of dedicated Calgary dentists has pinpointed several reasons going to the dentist isn’t always a great experience. Using these drawbacks for inspiration, we created a future-forward patient experience that extends from the moment you walk in the door, on through the insurance and billing process.

Standard dental experience:

  • Show up for first appointment
  • Have your teeth looked over, cleaned, x-rayed, etc.
  • Get feedback regarding overall oral health
  • Find out if you need any necessary procedures (costs and other options are often skipped over at this point, causing patients to feel helpless in their decision).
  • Go to the front desk to schedule your next appointment
  • Pay your bill and then send in a claim to your insurance and hope they pay it.

Macleod Trail Dental experience:

  • Fill out a patient form so the dentist can address you as a person, not just a patient.
  • Have your teeth checked over, x-rayed, and cleaned in a comfortable environment.
  • Enjoy the option of Sedation Dentistry
  • Receive a detailed report about the state of your dental health, and enjoy an open dialogue where you can ask any and all questions you may have.
  • If you require any additional dental procedures, we will discuss all options in detail including the cost of each option.
  • Our office sends a claim to your insurance company so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

Ditch Your Dental Phobias, We Can Help

Do You Suffer From FOD (Fear of Dentist)?

According to the British Dental Health Foundation, 36% of people who avoid visiting the dentist cite fear or dread as the main reason. In other words, you’re not alone and ‘fear of dentist’ is a real phobia. Gone are the days of suffering through your dental appointments, dreading the thought of ever returning. We are here to help you conquer your fears and enjoy a healthier smile. Once you step foot inside Macleod Trail Dental, you’ll understand exactly what we mean.

‘Fear of dentist’ can be caused by a negative past experience at the dentist, perhaps you endured a painful procedure without proper numbing. Although, a negative experience is not required to develop a phobia of going to the dentist. It’s perfectly normal and there’s nothing to be ashamed of.  

We welcome you to talk with us about your fears or dental phobias. We offer several solutions to help our patients feel as comfortable as possible, such as Sedation Dentistry.
