Keeping a great smile really boils down to keeping a good at-home oral care regimen, accompanied by regular dental visits for cleanings and exams.
It all sounds really simple….unless you’re one of the many people who suffer from dental anxiety.
For these people, just the thought of dental care can cause their heart to race, their palms to sweat, or even cause a panic attack. No matter how often they may be told, “Don’t fear the dentist,” some people simply don’t like having dental work done.
Lack of good dental care can lead to cavities, tooth decay, and ultimately tooth loss. Then you could experience a lack of confidence and find yourself hiding your smile behind your hand when you’re out in public. It’s a downward spiral from there.
Our Dental Care Stands Apart From the Crowd
However, it doesn’t have to be like that. At Guy H. Fortier, DDS, we relish the opportunity to work with patients who are anxious about their dental care.

We’ve Thought of Everything
And, as if that weren’t enough, our modern dental office features some of the most advanced dental technology available. We have a total of seven different dental lasers that we use for comfortable, pain-free, precise results. Laser treatment is often used as an alternative to traditional surgery that requires cutting and stitches.
Plus, we offer computer-controlled local anesthesia that will help ensure your treatment goes off without a hitch. We also use digital X-rays that expose patients to only a fraction of that of traditional X-rays.
In addition, we understand that people have job and school responsibilities. That’s why our office is available for both early morning and late afternoon appointments. Why miss more work or school than you have to, right?
As you can see, the team at Guy H. Fortier, DDS has gone to great lengths to ensure that each of our patients receives a completely comfortable and relaxed dental experience. We firmly believe that if you trust us with your smile care, you will walk away pleased.
So, we say, “Don’t fear the dentist!” Instead, treat yourself to some of the best dental care available anywhere. We promise there won’t be any tricks, either. Call us today at 260-888-3871 to make an appointment or use our online form to request an appointment time.
