Chapter 2 excerpt How to overcome fear of the dentist: Control your fear control your costs
If you have been living with chronic oral pain, you’re probably thinking that visiting a dentist may make your situation worse before it can be better. When you’re already in pain, the last thing you want is someone poking around in there causing more discomfort. Dentistry can be scary, for some, due to tooth pain, or discomfort of someone being in their mouth.
The only way to alleviate the pain, is to get proper dental treatment. It doesn’t have to be scary or painful!
Sedation options help you feel comfortable and relaxed during your dental visit, allowing for a simpler way to regain control of your dental health.
We do this by:
- Working with you to create a game plan for your comfort and health
- Alleviating anxiety with nerve relaxing treatment options
- Reducing daily pain and stress over your dental health
We offer three levels of sedation in house:
- Minimal Sedation
- Moderate Sedation
- General Anesthesia with an Anesthesiologist
We also offer outpatient options at High Point Regional Health with certified anesthesiologists.

“I highly recommend Dr. Bonnick! I have a deep fear of the dentist and have always been terrified of them (even simple cleanings were scary and sometimes painful), but Dr. Bonnick is so patient and gentle that all of my fears melt away when he walks into the room. His staff is also warm and welcoming and they make me feel at home when I visit. I like that Dr. Bonnick and his employees are always willing to slow down and talk to me and answer any questions I may have. Dr. Bonnick talks to me during the procedure and sets clear expectations. He always says “I’m about to…” or “ok you may feel _____” to let me know what’s about to happen. I appreciate being kept in the loop, being fully informed about my treatment, and being treated like my opinion and my voice matters when it comes to my dental care. The staff genuinely cares about making sure I have a wonderful experience each time I visit and I will sing Dr. Bonnick’s praises to the moon and back. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Bonnick if you are anything like I was – fearful and apprehensive. Why? Because Dr. Bonnick is made for patients just like you. I assure you, he will restore your faith in dentistry if you give him a try!” ~ Monique K.
