Causes and Ways to Manage
WHAT CAUSES DENTAL ANXIETY?
Perhaps you’ve had a bad experience, or received false information. Sometimes it’s simply a personality trait—maybe you are a born worrier. Other times you may experience anxious thinking, fearing that the worst may happen.
There are ways to manage this anxiety and even overcome it. Some ways include receiving accurate, thorough information, a gradual introduction to procedures and instruments, learning anxiety reduction skills, and working to change thinking patterns.
WE CAN HELP.
We’re familiar with these feelings; we see them often in varying degrees. You can be confident we will take the time needed to help you work through them. We can also refer you to counseling using cognitive behavioral therapy. Learn more at this website—behaviortherapist.com.

These Patients Have a Whole New Perspective on the Dentist
"I was impressed and happy I found this practice. The dentist was empathetic, had great calming energy, and handled a very nervous patient getting a wisdom tooth extracted. (I was surprised how quick it was - and there was zero pain). All the staff were friendly, and they ran me through the costs before proceeding. I'm a fan!"
"I had a great experience from the moment I walked through the door. The staff at this practice are top-notch. The hygienist was a genuinely nice person and made me feel so comfortable. The dentist was friendly and thorough. I’m so glad I chose to come here after many years of going without dental care. They let me know that I’m valued, and I’ve gone from feeling anxious about dental work to excited about partnering with these professionals to achieve optimal dental health."
"I’ve been going to Zöe Dental for about a month now and absolutely love it! They are very considerate about the barriers that you may have when it comes to getting dental work and try to make it the best experience for you. I was able to get an appointment with them fairly quickly even as a new patient. They have quickly gotten me in to address any issues that I was having. I’ve been recommending them over and over again to my family and friends!"
"Zöe Dental is a nice place to visit…..and it's a dentist's office. Everyone there is friendly. The hygienists are personable and make you feel at ease. You have the option of choosing between a massage chair, essential oils, chapstick, and so on to ease your anxieties. They ask you what matters most during your dental experience. They bill your insurance and you can even get a cookie at check out. I am only going to Zöe Dental from here on out."
"Newly arrived in Asheville, my wife and I selected Zöe Dental based on recommendations from friends and on internet research. We're very glad we did. The practice is without question the most well-run, professional, and confidence-inspiring dentists' office we've ever encountered."
"Finally a dentist and staff that really cares about the person. I felt well taken care of and was listened to. Having had terrible experiences in the past, I came away from Zöe Dental feeling confident that my needs will be met with expertise and compassion."
