James Loye Dismisses Common Excuses for Not Going to the Dentist

San Diego, California (PRWEB) June 24, 2013

James Loye, certified dental professional, knows that dental healthcare is an issue that many individuals put off for one reason or another. Fear, time, financial limitations, and more are frequently cited as reasons why individuals do not go to the dentist as regularly as they should. Below, Dr. Loye explains some of the most common excuses for forgoing dental care (as cited by a recent article published by U.S. News & World Report).

The article asserts that the cost of dental work is one of the reasons why individuals opt not to seek out dental care as often as necessary: "In fact, more than one in three Americans delays dental care because of their financial situation, according to a 2013 survey by ORC International and Aspen Dental, which also shows that 61 percent of workers making less than $35,000 per year don't have dental insurance."

To address this issue, which is nothing new, many dental practices are working to create payment plans that allow patients to access the dental care they need without bursting their budget. Additionally, Dr. Loye remarks, regular, preventative dental care is much less expensive, in the long run, than having to address dental emergencies that arise due to a lack of proactive dental attention.

Another common reason why individuals decide not to pursue regular dental care is the discomfort that they experience in the office. The article explains that modern dentistry has made great strides in creating a more comfortable experience for patients. Additionally, patients can turn to entertainment, such as televisions and MP3 players, that can keep them distracted from the elements of the visit that make them uncomfortable. The article explains: "Think about what specific part of dental appointments makes you cringe, and communicate that fear to your dentist, Laughrey says. If it's the sound of the drill that curdles your blood, the dentist may suggest you bring an iPod. If it's a needle you fear, the dentist may try an oral sedative or topical anesthetic."

"Modern dentistry is trying to be as 'user friendly' as possible with flexible financing, creature comforts such as television entertainment, quieter environments, and cutting-edge, less invasive procedures," comments Dr. James Loye. "These little efforts make a big difference to the patients who benefit from them. This is important, as it encourages patients to make and keep appointments and, ultimately, address small issues before they become major dental problems."

These are just a couple of the reasons why individuals resist regular dental care—and they are certainly issues that can be addressed by dental professionals. Dr. James Loye encourages individuals who are putting off a dental visit to communicate their fears or worries with their dental care provider to create a solution that will allow them to comfortably access the care they need.


James Loye is a certified dental professional with nearly 30 years of experience in the industry. Currently working in San Diego, California, he is a member of the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Facial Esthetics. Dr. Loye is devoted to creating a professional environment in which patients feel welcome while treating all individuals who come into his office with respect and compassion.
