People Fear Going to the Dentist – We Combat Those Fears

While everyone has their own motivations, here are the top six reasons why people avoid the dentist and how the SDS team is combating those fears for expert dental care.


The perceived high cost of dental care is the largest factor preventing people from getting regular dental checkups.

Schaumburg Dental Studio accepts all PPO insurance policies, including popular policies like MetLife, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Guardian, Delta Dental, Cigna, American National, United Healthcare, and Humana.

If you don’t have dental insurance, we can help partner you with dental insurance providers like iCare Financial, Lending Club, and CareCredit, where you can obtain coverage with 0% interest and no credit check.

Dental Anxiety

Many people are simply afraid of the dentist’s office and that fear drives them to avoid it all together.

At SDS, we go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and calm during your appointment. In addition to playing calming music and engaging content on our television screens, our team will meet with you to discuss your fears and show you that there’s nothing to be worried about.

Fear of Bad News

Avoidance and denial are strong human emotions, which can play a role in why people don’t visit the dentist as often as they should.

We understand. No one likes to get bad news. At SDS, we make sure we keep you well informed through every step of your appointment. If we do find a problem, we will outline all of your options extensively so you can make the right decision for you.

Fear of Instruments

In the early days, dental instruments were sharp, mysterious and scary. Not anymore.

We have invested in the latest dental technology to make sure your visit with us is safe and comfortable. For more information on the technology we have in office, check out our blog post
