For younger patients, the dentist can be an intimidating and anxiety-inducing experience. From high-pitched whistles and whirring sounds to sharp tools used to clean and examine their teeth, it’s understandable how the dentist might seem scary.
Luckily, our staff at Brian Homann DDS carries both extensive knowledge and an extra level of care for our younger patients. We’re proud to be the family dentist of Elk Grove Village, IL.
Our office will do everything in our power to create a relaxed environment for them to get their teeth cleaned, examined, or experience one of our other dental treatments.

What We Can Do To Ease Dental Anxieties For Younger Patients
Stepping into a new dental practice can be an intimidating experience, especially for children and teens. To ease any fear or anxieties surrounding the dentist, our practice offers the following options to help your family feel comfortable with us and our services:
Office Tours: Take a virtual tour of our office online to see the layout and welcoming staff who is ready to help you. Alternatively, we can walk patients and their family members through the office to show them the steps taken during their appointment. This can also include walking through the equipment we plan to use for a cleaning or exam.
Minimal Sedation: If your fears or anxieties of the dentist are more severe, we also offer nitrous oxide sedation to help a patient get through an appointment. Not only does this make the process much more comfortable for the patient, but it’s also a great way to keep their dental health in check and make future appointments even easier.
Addressing Questions and Concerns: We completely understand that the questions you might have for an upcoming appointment, might not arise until days or hours before you arrive. Sometimes those questions can occur during your appointment.
Regardless of when a question or concern arises, our staff is always available to listen, offer empathy, and address any concerns to the best of our ability.
