Fear of the dentist is extremely common. Studies suggest that more than one in every three people are afraid of dental appointments. That’s understandable. Some people suffer from dental anxiety due to bad experiences in other dental practices. Other people simply dislike the idea of having dental instruments in their mouths. Still others are concerned about embarrassment or feeling judged.
No matter the reason why you dislike the thought of seeing the dentist, you’ll discover just how easy and comfortable dental care can be at Davenport Dental Group in Laredo, TX.

Our staff are very friendly and compassionate. You’ll never feel judged for the state of your mouth or any anxiety about your appointment.
We also offer a number of comfort options to help you relax and have as comfortable an appointment as possible:
- We understand that some people are easily chilled. Others need a little help for their necks while they’re in the dental chair. We’re happy to provide blankets and pillows on request.
- Every operatory has a TV. Many of our patients enjoying watching a program during their appointments.
- If your appointment is at our Winfield office, we’ll be happy to provide headphones so that you can listen to tunes or a podcast during your appointment.
Our Technology Is Your Friend
We stay abreast of the latest in dental technology. Advanced equipment allows us to work faster and with even greater precision, increasing your comfort and minimizing your time in the chair. For instance, our digital X-rays are faster, more precise, and use 70 percent less radiation than traditional X-rays. Advanced imaging permits us to see any problems in detail and treat them more quickly. And if you need a crown, we can usually do the preparation and provide your new crown in a single appointment!
We provide non-surgical gum disease treatment that is pain-free and sedation dentistry that will help even the anxious person to relax. We use safe, proven, nitrous oxide that causes a sense of relaxation and ease. Best of all, nitrous oxide wears off very quickly so you can drive yourself to and from your appointment.
We don’t expect you to take our word for how comfortable and cared for you’ll be during your appointment. But you should know that 97.6% of our patients would refer family and friends to our offices.
Elizabeth is one of those patients, and she was kind enough to provide a testimonial video.
Here’s what she had to say: “I like the environment. When I get here, they’re very nice and very friendly. I’m always been scared of going to the dentist, and they make the environment pleasant for me. They tell you, “This is what we’re gonna do,” and they guide you, and you know, and you expect everything. If you get scared, they’ll stop. They have patience. They have patience with me and they take my feeling in consideration. They take their time with me. If they have to be two hours with me because I tell them, “I’m scared,” or this or that, they stop and I like that part of them. I’m not just a patient. I feel like I’m family here.”
