“Can you help me overcome Dentophobia at McKinney-Graham?”

The answer is “yes,” we can help! Let’s take a look at how some of our patients have faced their fears and overcome dental anxiety at McKinney-Graham Dental Arts…

Dr. McKinney is the best. Great staff and friendly people. Dr. McKinney is gentle, caring and does excellent work. He is focused on staying at the top of his field by learning new techniques and technologies and it shows in the experience that you receive as a patient. No one likes going to the dentist but my experiences with Dr. McKinney have helped alleviate my fear and anxiety and he has 100% earned my trust. I would recommend him and his staff to anyone.”

“In my experience, all of the staff were extremely professional and courteous. Dr. Graham had an air about him that created an almost instantaneous sense of trust that helped melt away the tension and fear that typically accompanies a trip to the dentist.”
Krista

“Where do I start? I’m a caregiver and had to take the lady(friend) to her appointment. We had talked about me and needing to find a dentist soon as I was in some pain for a while with a couple teeth. But with my history with dentist I was just walking around trying to deal and baby the teeth that were hurting. So anyway my friend asked if they could help me without me knowing that day. Next thing I know I’m being taken to get a X-ray and a appointment 3 days later for the removal of the two teeth that was hurting. So I’m dreading nervous and all the anxiety that comes along with it. So the day comes and I go in and everyone is so kind and understanding. The extraction went very well and I am not traumatized at all. So I highly recommend this group of dentist and their assistants! Definitely don’t have the fear like before when needing to go to the dentist!!”

Sandy

Had to have a lot of work done and was pretty nervous. Dr. Graham’s dental assistant Berida put me at ease with her friendly conversation and explanation of the procedures. She is very professional and skilled! Dr. Graham worked very patiently on me, making sure I was kept comfortably numb. He is my new favorite Dentist! Lisa at checkout was very helpful and kind. Thanks to you all!”

Steve

“Dr. McKinney was absolutely wonderful with easing my fears today! I had to have a wisdom tooth removed and I was extremely nervous. Not only did I not feel a thing at all, he reassured me constantly through the entire procedure which helped me tremendously. I would definitely recommend anyone to come here especially if you have had prior bad experiences with dentists! Thank you so much for taking great care of me!”
