Do you avoid going to the dentist?
Would you rather endure the agony of a cavity or a toothache than step foot into a dentist’s office? Does a simple teeth cleaning make you squirm with fear?
If you’re afraid of going to the dentist-or haven’t been to the dentist for years-then you’re not alone. Many people put off having the dental care they need because of fear or anxiety. The good news is that we can help you. Dr. Graham Dersley and Dr. Chris Wold have helped thousands of patients who were also nervous about dental treatment.

Don't Take Our Word For It...
“I truly trust the decisions and recommendations/suggestions that Dr. Dersley makes for my dental care plan now and in the past. I can smile again because of him and his very friendly, caring staff. Everyone is always concerned about your comfort, time and personal experience with them. The staff always helps by explaining your services and the options for payment to fit your budget, especially if you don’t have a personal dental care plan. I would recommend them to anyone, especially dental cowards who fear going to the dentist. The entire team makes you as comfortable as possible to lesson your fear and anxiety to take your mind off the dental process with positive conversation and cheer.”
“I am 30 years old and have had A LOT of dental work done over the years, and I have developed a strong phobia after so many bad experiences. The thing I noticed right away was that this didn’t smell or look like every other uncomfortable dental office. It felt comfy, and everyone was so friendly. It was completely painless and comfortable! I recommend this dentist to everyone I can!”
“I was afraid to visit the dentist’s office. When I walked into the facility, I couldn’t believe my eyes. The place was so neat and clean, and the staff was very friendly. They made me feel at home right away. I went in to have two implants done. Dr. Dersley explained everything he was doing so I wouldn’t be met with any surprises. I never felt any pain. It was a great experience. Thank you!”
“I was looking for a new dentist and had tried probably five others.… When I came here, it was thumb’s up right away.… I needed three big procedures, so I wanted to make sure I was getting the right doctors and dentists, and I got that here.
The doctors here, you can trust them. If they say everything’s going to be okay, it will be. I had never had an implant, and I had heard people say it wasn’t a good procedure. But they made it very comfortable. They walked me through the procedure, and I was very comfortable and very happy.”
“I’ve had anxiety with dental procedures for some time, and I let my teeth go. I actually had two places where teeth were missing. I had a phobia with needles, so I explained that to Dr. Dersley and he said no problem. He explained everything we were going to do, and he was spot on.
I thought it was going to be pretty invasive, but after we went through the procedure it was pretty much a noninvasive event—no pain whatsoever. The recovery was minimal, and the implant was very easy. I didn’t feel anything.…
I don’t feel any difference; it feels like a normal tooth. I can’t tell a difference.
Before implants, I wasn’t able to eat certain types of foods, meats and such. Now I can eat on both sides. I was worried about pain and anxiety, but I had to make that step. When I came in, the doctor pretty much told me there wasn’t going to be any pain, and I said, “Let’s see.” And he was spot on. There wasn’t. I did not have any pain.”
“People here are friendly. They respect my time, they want to get me in and get me out, and they’re very professional. They do everything from cleaning to implants, and everything in between. It’s a one-stop shop.
I’ve had a number of dental procedures. I needed an implant, which is what led me here. Since then, I’ve had two implants, which brings it up to a total of seven. It’s been very easy, very painless.
I was going through the process from having fillings to having crowns, then root canals, and then that crown breaking down, so I decided to get implants. I wanted the longevity of the teeth, and I only wanted to pay once for the process!
Dr. Dersley is very patient, very outgoing, and told me exactly what was going to happen and what to expect. There weren’t any surprises, no regrets at all. I’d rather have the teeth than the money in my pocket!”
