Dental anxiety should never keep you from enjoying a healthy and beautiful smile. Dental care is important and can help you maintain the health of your entire body. Visiting the dentist frequently for preventive care visits can help you stay out of the chair and avoid more complex dental procedures.

Dr. Mazhari takes the time to work with each patient on a one to one basis to establish a trusting dentist-patient relationship. Dr. Mazhari uses education, distraction and relaxation techniques to help patients feel calm and confident during their dental procedures. Our Alexandria, VA dentist office also offers sedation dentistry for more involved procedures, or for patients with severe dental anxiety.

Relax and Refocus

Our Alexandria, VA dentist office utilizes a range of relaxation techniques. We offer headphones so you can listen to music or watch a video. This can help distract you and take your mind of your treatment. We may also use visualization techniques to help reduce your feelings of anxiety. Our state of the art dentist office uses only the best and latest in technique and technology. Modern dentistry is less invasive and more effective than ever before. Your dental health is important to your well-being, so take a deep breath, and remember that coming to the dentist can help you look and feel your best.
