Dentists from Eastern Shore Dental Care Publish Book
Co-owners of the Eastern Shore’s leading dental office publishes book on anxiety-free dentistry.
CHESTER, MD: Dr. Scott Billings and Dr. Christopher Murphy, co-owners of Eastern Shore Dental Care, have published a book entitled, “Worry-Free Dentistry At Last! A Patient’s Guide To Anxiety-Free Dentistry”.
After practicing dentistry for over 30 years, Dr. Billings and Dr. Murphy have seen it all, from patients who had a bad experience with a previous dentist to claustrophobia to fear of pain. With approximately 75% of Americans suffering from some form of dental anxiety, they knew they needed to address the problem.
“Worry-Free Dentistry At Last! A Patient’s Guide To Anxiety-Free Dentistry” examines the different types of dental fears and phobias by breaking them down to show you how having a caring and compassionate dentist can help you get past those barriers. Like mental health, there is a stigma with dental anxiety and fear that needs to be eliminated. People need to know that it’s okay to have this fear, and that there are different types of solutions available (including Sedation Dentistry) to get the dental care you need and on your terms.
“As a patient, you deserve to be treated compassionately and not forced beyond the limits of your comfort zone,” says Dr. Murphy. “A dentist should be able to respect your boundaries and come up with a treatment plan that makes you comfortable. If your dentist isn’t willing to do this, then you should find a dentist who will.”
Dr. Billings adds, “No matter the source of your fears, it should never keep you from getting the help you need. A caring dentist will never judge you. They will want to help you work through your fears, get you healthy and keep you that way. You deserve to experience the same comfortable and stress-free experience at the dentist that others experience on a daily basis.”
Copies of the book are available at their office located at 22 Kent Towne Market in Chester or can be purchased online at Amazon.com.
