Woman: I would say that if you are afraid to go to the dentist then you don't have to worry with Dr. Goodman. You go to Dr. Goodman. He makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed. If he has to deaden your gums in order to do some kind of work on it, you don't even feel the needle. You are just so relaxed. He is just very, very good at what he does. Man: The one thing I have found out over the years and trying to deal with the anxiety is basically establishing trust and communicating. Getting to know people as people before you start working on them is one of the best remedies for anxiety. Woman: Dentistry is just one of those fields where people are scared a lot. We have lots of patients who deal with that all the time and have fear of coming in. So, we do everything we can to make these visits as comfortable as possible for patients. It's really gratifying to see patients start where they are in tears and crying and are scared, to coming in every three to six months and just laughing and joking and are totally changed because of it.
