You may remember going to the dentist as an unpleasant, even terrible experience. When abusing substances, you were probably running away from pain, whether it was physical or emotional. We want to assure you that we do everything possible to make your visit with Dr. Alexander anything but painful… you’ve had quite enough of that!

Dr. Alexander’s gentle touch and caring attitude will make you feel relaxed and comfortable. Using state-of-the-art dental techniques, dental products, dental materials, and dental equipment, Dr. Alexander goes to great lengths to ensure your comfort and peace of mind. He understands the very unique considerations that must be given to his patients in recovery, and will discuss these with you at your very first appointment.

Painless Novocain Injections (shots)

Many patients have experienced pain in the past with Novocain injections. It may have even kept you from seeking dental care in the past. Dr. Alexander understands this can be the most painful part of any visit, so he has developed a method to administer Novocain and it’s virtually painless. He uses what he calls a “staged” approach to Novocain injections. First, he applies a very strong Novocain gel at the injection site. After 2-4 minutes, he places a few drops of a gentler, less acidic Novocain on the same area and allows 2 minutes for it to take effect. By this time, the area is comfortably numb. Dr. Alexander follows up with slow, controlled delivery of a slightly stronger Novocain, using a “vibration” technique to administer the injection. This technique disrupts the signal of pain to your brain so you don’t feel it!
