Lose the Fear of Going to the Dentist
One in five people is afraid to go to the dentist! Is that you? Meet Jupiter-based Dr. Bruce Lein, who wants to eliminate the stigma of painful dentistry.
While many people equate dentistry with pain and discomfort, Dr. Lein discusses why there’s no need to fear your next appointment, and why it’s critical for everyone to keep up with their oral health.
Healthy teeth and gums are essential to a healthy heart and digestion. At Dr. Lein’s office, state-of-the-art dental technology, such as the intraoral camera and digital radiography, is used to pinpoint and treat affected areas for the most comfortable and least invasive dental treatment possible.
