Gentle Dentistry


If you suffer from dental phobia – fear no more! 

Dr. O’Donnell respects the power of dental fear. It stops people from going to the dentist, and that can have a major impact on the health of your teeth, your physical health and your mental outlook.

He is happy to offer sedation, or gentle dentistry which will allow you to experience dentistry in a whole new way. While engaging in a pleasant sleep-like experience, Dr. O’Donnell will be hard at work making sure you ‘wake up’ with the beautiful new smile and results you desire.

The ability to build rapport with patients is critical to the gentle dentistry concept. Dr. O’Donnell places great emphasis on spending more time with his patients, discovering more about how they want to be treated and ensuring that they feel comfortable before the treatment progresses. For some dental phobic patients, small steps matter a great deal and they may need to schedule their treatment over a number of visits. For others, their phobia means that they just want their treatment over and done with as soon as possible – so they need their treatment compressed into just one visit. Dr. O’Donnell is happy to accommodate. 

Trust Dr. O’Donnell’s dedication to gentle. Whether you suffer from panic attacks, claustrophobia in the dental chair, or have had traumatic dental experiences in the past, trust that Dr. O’Donnell will have solutions to make your experience free of anxiety and pain and make sure you’re as comfortable as you can be, helping to create a better patient experience that many phobia sufferers find more reassuring and more relaxing. Alabama Smile Design is your go to along the Gulf Coast for gentle dentistry. Your comfort is a top priority; there’s no reason you should ever feel anxious with Dr. O’Donnell and his team by your side.
