Do you get sweaty palms or a nervous stomach while waiting to see the dentist? Do you have a paralyzing fear of the dentist that causes you to cancel your dental appointments time and time again? We can help you at Ora Dentistry. In fact, our Elk Grove practice specializes in treating patients with dental phobia. To ensure we are able to treat patients with varying levels of dental anxiety, our office offers soothing amenities, oral conscious sedation and IV sedation.

Dental phobia, or dental anxiety, is a very real condition. In fact, it keeps countless patients from seeing the dentist each year. At Ora Dentistry, we realize that dental anxiety can be a major obstacle to dental care, whether it involves routine visits, restorative work or cosmetic procedures. Your smile deserves professional attention, and we won’t let your dental phobia stand in the way. You’ll find that our office goes above and beyond to create a comfortable, stress-free visit just for you.

Reasons for Dental Anxiety

Dental anxiety can present itself in various degrees. It can also originate from a number of different sources or factors. At Ora Dentistry, we help patients who have dental phobia due to the following:

  • Bad dental experience as a child
  • Fear of needles or pain
  • Fear of sights or sounds of the dental office
  • Severe gag reflex
  • Fear of not being in control

Regardless of the cause, sedation dentistry is typically the most effective way to treat patients with dental phobia. Our office offers both oral conscious sedation and IV sedation, depending on your personal preferences and the severity of your anxiety. Both forms of sedation are completely safe and allow you to remain in a fully relaxed state while your smile is tended to.

To learn more about how we treat patients with dental phobia, contact Ora Dentistry today. Comfort dentistry is what our Elk Grove practice was built on.

Very confused by the website and advertising as an after hour/emergency dental service. I broke a tooth this evening and was looking for emergency dental services for the earliest appointment. I called and a receptionist/operator picked up on a Friday evening close to 8 p.m. and said that the emergency dental service was only for existing patients. That isn't on the website and in fact, the top line on the website states if you need emergency dental care , call. Don't mind that they aren't able to see me, but the operator needs a better script when explaining their services and should also provide better service or don't be an after hour receptionist. She also never asked me if I WAS an existing patient. Would love to give no stars, but I can't post unless I pick one. UPDATE: So wasn't expecting the owner of the practice to call me. I spoke with Dr. Dalla and he explained in detail their policies and calmed my anxiety regarding my broken tooth.. I appreciate that he is a business owner that pays attention to what is being said about his practice and would take the time to follow up. I may have found a new dentist.

I’ve been searching for a dental office for my special needs daughter for a long time. I called many offices explaining her situation that she had Autism and anxiety and I was told they didn’t see special needs kids. I came across Ora Dentistry through my google search and gave them a call explained to them my situation and they told me they’d be happy to see her. We scheduled an appointment. On the day of the appointment I called again and explained her situation and told them she would like her sister and mom to be there for support due to her anxiety and they were totally accommodating and that put me at ease. We got to our appointment and were greeted by Bridgette she was AMAZING with my daughter she made her feel SUPER comfortable through out the entire process! I’ve never seen my daughter so calm and relaxed. When the doctor came in to do his exam on her he too was beyond nice and again made my daughter feel at ease. I really have to thank Ora dentistry for their excellent service! If you have a special needs child this is the place to go! Highly recommend it!

Two years ago I visited this office to assess the viability of getting an implant for a lost tooth. On that first visit Dr. Dalla had x-rays taken, made the assessment, provided me with options, including performing an implant on a lost back molar. I consented, and right then and there, he performed the actual implant and gave me a return appointment to insure all was healing well. Then, 3 months later, he fitted me with the abutment and took impressions for the crown. Two weeks after that the crown was installed. Not only was the work done in record time, but it has been the best fitting crown I've ever had, and I've had 18 crowns in my lifetime of 68 years. This was my second implant. My first implant was by another dental office and does not come close to compare with Dr. Dalla's work. His implant and crown feel like healthy, natural teeth, and in fact, I chew most of my food using that new "molar." I wish I would have gone to him long ago. By far the best around. He is a perfectionist, and is demanding of himself. Just what you should want in someone performing your dental work. Highest recommendations!
