Making Your Visit Fun and Relaxing
Dental Fear is Common
Fear of the dentist is a very real and very common occurrence. Dental fear affects between 13 and 24 percent of adults in the United States, according to the American Dental Association. Many people avoid seeing the dentist for regular checkups and necessary treatment simply because they are afraid to go to the dentist. Some patients may be put off by certain sounds or smells of clinical dental settings, or avoid the dentist because they may have had a bad experience elsewhere previously. These fears may cause some individuals to even put off necessary dental work- leaving them at risk of tooth decay, periodontal disease, tooth loss, and other health complications.
Don’t let fear of the dentist cause you to put off regular checkups and necessary treatments. Call Dr. George today at 724-934-3422 to schedule your appointment.

Come for a Checkup, Stay and Relax
As an added benefit to patients, we offer a Zen-inspired relaxation room, complete with aromatherapy and soothing music. If you’re feeling tense or just need a place to sit and relax, make it a point to stop in for a quiet and relaxing experience.
We also offer our patients ultra-low frequency transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (ULF-TENS) therapy. ULF-TENS units are small machines that help relieve pain and tension. It is an ideal therapy for patients that suffer from chronic muscle and joint pain caused by conditions like osteoarthritis, tendonitis, or injuries. People use ULF-TENS to relieve pain for many different types of illnesses and conditions.
We use ULF-TENS therapy as part of our treatment for patients with TMJD to help sore and tense jaw muscles caused by the condition. ULF-TENS therapy is also beneficial in treating neck and back pain that is a side effect for many individuals with TMJD.
