For pain and anxiety, first of all if you're not afraid of needles, there's something a little strange about you. I think everybody is afraid of needles. I think I'm about as afraid of needles as anybody, I really am very much ... I know it sounds strange to be a dentist to be a little dentophobic, but I am. I'm very understanding with that, I'm very patient with that, because that's what the dentists have been with me in the past, especially when I used to be that anxious patient. I understand it, I'll be there to help.
We go on the patient's pace, we make sure everything is pain free, before I even touch it. Everything has to be pain free, because that is what I would want. I treat the patient as I would want to be treated, and I'm a high stress patient, I'm a difficult to treat patient. I am, I have to admit that. I don't mind working on those patients, I don't lose patience working on that type of patient. It's perfectly understandable. I understand where they're coming from, and I work with them, just like I'd want to be treated.

What to Expect at Your First Visit
When you visit our modern office, you will be immediately greeted by our friendly and helpful staff. We will promptly check you in, ensure that your paperwork is complete, and offer you a seat until it is time for your appointment. While you wait, let our concierge help you relax with a cup of tea or cappuccino from our lobby coffee bar. We’ll also give you a brief tour of our office so that you can get a good feel of our comfortable environment and digital technology.
We live in a very young community, a growing community. There's families all around us. I have a family myself. I have a loving wife, I have three beautiful children, and I know what that's like. Often, it's not very easy to coordinate appointments, to coordinate treatment even, for families. We knew that, going into building Infinite Smiles. We creating an atmosphere where we have a dedicated room just for children, so they're not running around the office, and parents are having to chase after then. We created an atmosphere where the patients and the parents know that the children are safe in the playroom, while they're having treatment done. We definitely do all the services from a family perspective. Everything from basic cleanings, for both adults and children, all the way up through comprehensive and reconstructive dentistry.
From a family perspective, we absolutely cater to the families, knowing how to sequence appointments. How to make it easier, and relieve the burden of having to see multiple family members. Coordinate between school, daycare, work, and all of the things that we deal with on a daily basis. We know that going into it, that's the primary hurdle to seeking dentistry, and dental care often, is trying to coordinate the time. In today's society, that's the one variable we have no control over, is time. Time moves very quickly, and very few of us have the time to dedicate towards our health, and the health of our loves ones.
Despite our impressive office size, our team focuses on quality care – we are not a quantity office that just tries to get you in and out as quickly as possible. We will spend an hour to two hours for your first appointment, giving us sufficient time for a comprehensive exam and cleaning.
When it’s time for your appointment, we’ll call you back to meet the team members who will be taking care of you. They will first take digital images to create your personal digital record. This will allow us not only to identify any problems but also to recreate your smile in the event of an accident. Next, we’ll begin your thorough cleaning. Because we understand that your oral health is affected by your overall health, we go beyond just cleaning your teeth. We’ll also take your blood pressure, examine you for signs of oral cancer, measure your gum health, and look for evidence of TMJ problems. Dr. Patel will also go over your medical and dental history with you, as well as discuss any problems you’re having and any cosmetic dentistry you want.
Our goal is to make your experience with us as comfortable and relaxing as possible. We hope you will visit us soon to experience our comprehensive yet gentle dental care! To make your first appointment, call us today at 740-881-2600 or fill out our online form. We look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve the best oral health and smile possible!
