Embarrassed about visiting the dentist?
Read why you shouldn’t be!
“My teeth are the worst the dentist has ever seen; I feel guilty, ashamed, and scared of ‘the lecture.’ I am worried that the dentist will berate me, humiliate me, or judge me.”Anonymous Coddington Dental Patient
Are you embarrassed to go to the dentist?
You’re not alone. Embarrassment is the most common dental phobia voiced by people who haven’t been to a dentist in a very long time, or even by people who have. The good news is, there is no reason to feel embarrassed.
My name is Dr. Jodi Day, your Lincoln, NE dentist. I see a variety of teeth in many different conditions daily; Part of my job is never to judge! It saddens me to hear that so many people avoid going to the dentist because they are ashamed about the condition of their teeth. My job is to fix the problem at hand and to help you feel better about yourself. If you don’t get a check-up of your teeth due to embarrassment, it can be a bit of a vicious cycle that will make you miserable. The condition of your teeth will worsen, leading to infections, and this could make you feel even more embarrassed. Also, your overall health can be negatively affected by dental infections.
After many years in dentistry, I find it unlikely that I haven’t seen a set of teeth that are worse than yours and they don’t faze me at all. Some teeth can even look worse than they really are and the problems can usually be fixed in a short period of time.
No matter the condition of your teeth, my job is to help and advise you, not to judge you or make you feel embarrassed about your teeth.
You can rest assured that my office is non-judgmental and you can come here without any embarrassment. I am a caring dentist and if you have a phobia of visiting– I will be the right dentist for the job. I aim to make patients with dental phobia feel completely at ease. I believe compassion is what patients need to help them make them feel better about themselves. While some dentists like to lecture their clients and see it as a type of “tough love,” I won’t and I never will. “Tough Love” makes patients feel embarrassed and is far from being compassionate and caring.
I believe I am a judgment-free dentist that values open communication.
I will strive to make dental appointments a positive experience for all, no matter the condition of your teeth or the time between appointments.
Once you gather the courage to come to our office, we will welcome you with kindness and you can finally get the treatment you want and deserve to have. When you come in, you can feel proud of yourself for overcoming a challenge that once seemed impossible.

I tell patients often that even I am a judgment-free dentist and I have been working and helping many patients with dental anxiety, sometimes is it better to use oral conscious sedation to assure positive dental experience. Using oral sedation can be helpful for new patients while they are gaining confidence and trust in their new dentist. Many patients use oral sedation to complete their treatment and usually do not require any oral sedation medications as they become established patients. Oral sedation is a helpful tool to overcome that initial dental anxiety associated with the unknown. You can read more about oral sedation in this blog:
I get CAQ’s about sedation dentistry, the conscious oral sedation and the medications used for oral sedation. I have some of the CAQs answered.
What is conscious oral sedation like?
Conscious oral sedation is a medication that can help reduce anxiety for dental treatment. It is a tablet that is typically taken one hour before your dental appointment. Patients remain awake and responsive, but are in a more relaxed state. Individuals taking conscious oral sedation will need another person to drive them to/from their dental appointment.
What does oral sedation dentistry near me cost?
The cost of the oral sedation medication is dependent on individual prescription drug coverage, If you have questions regarding coverage of the medication, please contact your prescription drug coverage carrier to determine if coverage is available for your oral sedation medication.
What are dental sedation drugs for oral sedation?
Most commonly, Triazolam is the medication prescribed for conscious oral sedation. An individual’s medical history will first be reviewed to determine if they are a candidate for oral conscious sedation.
