Importance of "Gentle" Dentistry

Gentle Dentistry in Stillwater MN

Many people avoid going to the dentist because they believe that dental procedures are often uncomfortable or painful. While you may have had a bad experience at another dental office, at Filson Gentle Dentistry we strive to offer our patients the best and most comfortable dental care in the Stillwater, MN area. We are so confident in our gentle dental care we even put it in our name!

Gentle Dentistry

  • Caring staff – Our “gentle dentistry” philosophy starts with our staff, from the front desk staff all the way to Dr. Matthew Hei and Dr. Bruce Filson.  Your comfort is one of our main goals from the moment you walk in the door for the first time and throughout your time as one of our patients. Which is why we offer comfortable seating and a peaceful atmosphere. We will answer any questions you have prior to your procedure in order to make sure you are informed and relaxed throughout your visit.
  • Updated technology – We do our best to keep up with the dental technology that is being developed and upgraded constantly. This newer technology allows us to provide you with more efficient and less invasive dental care, often meaning less discomfort and pain. Technology such as our digital x-rays, iTero digital impressions, and laser dentistry makes it easier to spend less time poking around in your mouth while still providing you exemplary oral care.
  • Sedation dentistry – We understand that many people might experience anxiety when they think about going to the dentist for even routine care, which is why we offer our patients sedation dentistry. We offer three different types of sedation in order to fit your needs and make you feel as relaxed and stress-free as possible. In most cases, you won’t even remember the procedure once the sedation wears off, making dental visits easy and quick.

Putting Comfort First

We have helped several patients who have been hesitant about getting dental care in the past overcome their fears of the dentist by putting their needs and comfort first. Dr. Filson and Dr. Hei don’t believe dental visits should be a cause of anxiety or stress in your life, which is why gentle dentistry is so important to us. If you would like to learn more about our office, the services we provide, and our emphasis on gentle dental care, please contact us today!
