Awkward at the Dentist - Ask a Dentist

Q: I always feel awkward when my dental hygienist is looking in my mouth, I’m never sure what I should do. Do you have any tips?A: The best thing you can do is relax and open your mouth wide! Our staff know what they’re doing and will move around to get into the right position. If they need you to change your position they’ll ask you.

Also, if at any point you need suction or water, feel free to ask. A big part of our job is to make sure the experience is comfortable for you. Just wave your hand and we will stop to see what you need.
