And we do offer several things for patients if they have dental anxiety such as (inaudible) or things like that. Medications that the patients can take to kind of relieve some of the anxiety. But you know, we do great dentistry here, and so many people come in nervous and they leave and they're like, "You know, that wasn't nearly what I thought it would be. That was fine. I'm fine."
We have 70 patients that come here now that have been coming for years. And they're like, "When I walked to the door before, I was shaking, I was scared," and now it's like, "Hey, you know, I'm going to see my friends at the dentist, which is awesome." You know, a lot of those people became like family to us.
We offer here – which may sound small, but it's not – we have these really nice big fuzzy blankets for patients. So if they're cold, you know a dentist's office is a lot of times cold, so they can cozy up in our comfortable chairs. We have TVs so the patients can kind of watch TV to keep their minds off of things. Dr. Garrett even has a buffer anesthetic that makes the anesthetic not hurt as bad anymore. So patients a lot of times after getting that initial shot are like, "I didn't even feel that."
We always want to go that extra mile for our patients. We have protein shakes and waters and things like that to keep them comfortable and not hungry while they're here. So we always tell our patients if at any point in time, if you need us to stop, you're in control. This is your visit.
A lot of patients come in with that fear, but they don't leave that way. And we love that.

From Start to Finish, Enjoy an Anxiety-Free Experience
From the person who schedules your appointment to the smiling team member who greets you at your first visit, you’ll feel welcome at Carolina Bright Smiles. Help yourself to a drink at our beverage bar.
Technology helps us use a gentle touch during every treatment. For example, our dentists use a handheld intraoral camera to keep your exams as noninvasive as possible. They can also share images from the camera, so you can see what they see and better understand your treatment options.
While you’re in our chair, you can enjoy several amenities:
- Bose noise-canceling headphones
- Flat-screen TVs
If you need anesthesia, we use a product from North Carolina company Anutra Medical to numb the site of your treatment with a special process so you won’t feel pain at all. You can also choose from three kinds of sedation: inhaled sedation (“laughing gas”), an oral sedative, or IV sedation. Following your treatment, you can freshen up with warm towels. We take the stress out of paying for your care, too, with multiple payment options.
