Patient Comfort

At Monarch Family Dental, we understand that going to the dentist can sometimes be daunting. For this reason, we provide dental anxiety treatment in Westminster, Colorado, and offer sedation options to help our patients feel more comfortable during treatments with us. Learn more below and call our dental office at 303-920-4900 to schedule a visit with our dentist, Dr. Jorge Rojas.

Dental anxiety is fairly common. It may range from being somewhat nervous about a future appointment to a dental phobia so severe that you avoid going to the dentist altogether. Although it is common, if you let dental anxiety keep you from seeing our dentist, you will be setting yourself up for dental health problems and possibly even issues with your general health.

Dental anxiety can have multiple causes. Some people have had bad dental experiences in the past that might make them hesitant to come in. Others are put off by the sounds and smells of a dental office. In some cases, people are uncomfortable lying down and having people close to them put hands and instruments in their mouths. Some people may be concerned about the potential for dental pain.

It does not matter how mild or severe your dental anxiety may be, our dentist and team can help. Here are some steps you can take:

  • Let us know. We understand dental anxiety, and if it is a problem for you, there are steps we can take to cut the stress out of your visit.
  • Bring your phone or media player. Listening to your favorite books, music or podcasts can take your mind off of your visit.
  • Try some relaxation techniques. Deep breathing, meditation or focusing on something else can make your appointment easier.
  • Talk with us about sedation dentistry. There are several methods that can ease your fears and help you remain calm during your visit.
  • Take a break. If you need a few minutes to relax and regroup, give our team a hand signal, and we can stop for a few minutes to give you a breather.
  • Know your options. In some cases, we might be able to use a different treatment to achieve the desired results.

Instead of putting off your visit because of anxiety, call our office and let us find ways to make your appointment a positive experience.


Truly knowledgeable and highly skilled professionals, deeply committed to doing an excellent job. And this applies to the whole team from the receptionist to the head dentist.

The service was great and the fact that the fillings and the crown replacement was virtually pain free, is why I would recommend. The doctor took his time and did it the right way!
