Relax and forget you were ever here!

So, you’re afraid of the dentist, you are not alone. Over 40 million people avoid the dentist because of their dental anxiety. Our highly trained team completely understands that it isn't easy taking that first of calling to schedule your first visit, let alone mustering up the courage to walk through the doors for that visit. Fox Run Dental’s number one priority is to listen to your unique concerns and help you feel completely comfortable throughout the entire process while providing pain-free treatment.

You may be a great candidate for sedation dentistry if you have:

  • High fear
  • Had traumatic dental experiences
  • Difficulty getting numb
  • A bad gag reflex
  • Very sensitive teeth
  • Limited time to complete their dental care
  • Complex dental problems
  • A fear of needles and shots
  • An aversion to the noises smells and tastes associated with dental care
  • Fear or embarrassment about their teeth


There are several comfort items available to help ease your dental anxiety and make them a thing of the past. A cozy blanket, your favorite beverage or listening to the music of your choice with headphones are all complimentary to help you relax.

Lavender oil can be a fantastic calming agent to use to help reduce those pre-appointment jitters. Apply a couple drops to your wrists, in your diffuser, or to a pot of boiling water on the stove and experience its relaxing benefits.

Sedation dentistry is an option for those who have a higher degree of anxiety about dental visits and want to feel relaxed on another level. Time will fly by as Dr. Goetsch gives you a healthy mouth that looks and feels great. All treatment can be done in one visit, while you relax without a care in the world!

One of the most popular methods of sedation dentistry is called Oral Conscious Sedation. Fox Run Dental Practices oral sedation, which gives us a choice of medications that can be used in various situations. Inhalation conscious sedation, the delivery of nitrous oxide through a mask that fits over the nose, is another method that's needle-free, and provides a mild sense of euphoria during treatment, with no “hangover” effect afterward.

No matter what unique concerns you may be, Fox Run Dental is here to listen, and Dr. Goetsch will not begin any treatment until you say you're ready. To experience comfortable and relaxed dental care in Appleton, WI, please call to set up a sedation consultation. Call: 920-733-2371
