Do you have dental anxiety or phobia? Most people are not fans of going to the dentist, but for some, it can be a highly stressful experience. If you have had poor dental care in the past or just have an unexplained fear of the dentist, you are not alone. Patients with dental phobia or anxiety are not uncommon, but you do not need to forego dental care. At Liberty Lake Smile Source, we offer sedation dentistry combined with exceptional patient care for our patients with dental phobia.

Dr. Macall and Dr. Casey are phenomenal dentists that truly care about their patients. Our practice has been designed to ensure every patient is comfortable and feels at ease while at our office in the Spokane Valley. Our dentists and dental team treat every patient with respect and patience, ensuring they feel secure during every phase of their visit. We have amenities like blankets, TVs and pillows to help make you relaxed in the treatment rooms; but often, our patients with dental phobia will require sedation for the best results.

Sedation Dentistry for Anxiety

We offer nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation and IV sedation for our patients at Liberty Lake Smile Source. If you have mild to moderate dental anxiety, nitrous oxide can provide a soothing effect to make you feel at ease during your visits. For moderate to severe dental phobia, oral conscious sedation may be a better option. This includes taking medication the day before your appointment to get a good night’s sleep, then medications the day of your appointment. Oral conscious sedation can have an amnesic effect even though you are awake. You can relax while we care for your smile and will likely not remember the treatment. With sedation dentistry, you can achieve better oral health while overcoming your anxiety or phobia.

You need dental care to prevent oral health problems. If you fear going to the dentist or experience dental anxiety, let us help at Liberty Lake Smile Source. We offer compassionate, comfortable dental care for our patients with dental phobia or anxiety at our dental center in Liberty Lake, WA. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

Great location, great people, and all around a great dentist. I recently transferred to their office due to location, and I’m very impressed with everything they have to offer. From the receptionist, to the hygienist, and the dentist are all super friendly and very professional.

I absolutely love the team at Liberty Lake Smile Source.I've been seeing Dr. Tim Casey for over 5 years and you won't find someone who is more attentive, caring and professional. We only see each other a couple times a year and he always checks in on how my family and I are doing.All of the staff are top-notch and I would 100% recommend this team to anyone who asks.

From start to finish, a great experience.Patty had a warm and welcoming smile to get me checked in (and out). I met with Heather (with a little help from Elizabeth) who were fantastic at explaining the whole process and making sure to breakdown jargon and let me know the findings of my cleaning. I got to watch some silly and funny animal tv on the ceiling which had some great ways to make me smile during the visit. They took great X-rays and pictures of my teeth to ensure all aspects of my dental care were considered. Dr. Macall was personable while also professional and informative. Would 10/10 recommend the entire process with this group. Thank you for your great care and even though it’s the dentist office, I look forward to returning.

Was a great experience. The technician was very pleasant. She was attentive to me and my questions. Gentle and considerate. Dentist was great. Felt he was professional and explained things well. No pressure on what needed to be done or how soon. Office personal were very pleasant and attentive. Explained the treatment plan and insurance coverage and what my costs would be. It was a very pleasant and comfortable visit. I would recommend this office to others.

The staff was very friendly. Office clean and welcoming. Hygienist was extremely knowledgeable and gentle. Dr Casey explained all scenarios to me and what work was needed first. I liked the efficiency of all his staff and I think it was my best experience with any dentist.

Recently moved here from Chicago, and a family member recommended Liberty Lake Smile. It took a brief and easy website visit and a follow-up call from them, and I had an appointment right away! I was impressed at how nice and professional the entire staff was, and it was apparent they really did care, and know their business! I was surprised at how thorough my initial visit and assessment actually was. Ann, the Hygienist and Dr. Casey demonstrated their competence, experience and professionalism, and left me with a feeling of confidence that they would provide excellent care! Moreover, they came up with a detailed plan to map out the course of action. I would happily recommend Liberty Lake Smile for your dental needs.
