Anxiety or fear around dental appointments is very common. Our Halifax dentists provide a relaxing dental experience to help our patients get the care they need with a minimum of stress.

Dental Anxiety & Your Oral Health

For some people, dental anxiety can become completely overwhelming, making it difficult or even impossible for them to get the preventive or restorative dental care they need.

While this is understandable, regular dental care is essential for preventing oral disease and the need for more complex treatments. It should therefore not be avoided.

How We Help

At Scotia Dental, we do everything we can to help patients feel comfortable and at ease when they visit us.

We encourage you to talk to us about your fears and concerns ahead of time, so that we can establish a plan to help you manage your anxiety during the appointment. During your procedure, we will work at your pace, answer your questions, and take breaks if you need them.

Sound Therapy

Enjoy the soothing sounds of relaxing music and a trickling waterfall as you’re greeted and comfortably seated in our reception lounge.


While undergoing treatment we want you to be comfortable, so we have invested in extra plush chairs and gel pillows. Your comfort is our top priority.

Sedation Options

For our patients with severe anxiety, we offer a range of dental sedation options.
