First, remember Dr. David Rice is trained to provide the best care and comfort possible.
Second, take some time to relax and consider what you are anxious about. Take deep breaths in and slowly let them out as you weigh the reasons for and against taking these steps to a better you. Remember that many folks have been in your shoes and everything worked out fine. Especially all of our visitors who came in for dental implants, our most popular service.
