What’s Holding You Back From Visiting Your Temecula Dentist?

Temecula dentist 4 reasons you are avoiding the dentist

We know the idea of booking your next dental hygiene cleaning and checkup might be low on your priority list. Many people are anxious about visiting the dentist for a variety of reasons. No matter what has held you back in the past, let us reassure you: Here at the Temecula dentist office of Dr. Michael Skidmore we promise to make your needs and comfort our top priority.

You already know why it’s important to visit us every six months ‐ not only can regular dental checkups with Dr. Skidmore keep your teeth and gums healthy, they can also help you maintain better overall health.

But we’re not going to lecture you on WHY you need to visit. Instead, we’ll address a few of the things that may be holding you back from booking your next appointment.


Full‐time work, a long commute, running the kids to soccer practice… our Temecula patients are BUSY! It can be tough to squeeze anything extra into your schedule. We understand! That’s why we offer lunchtime, evening, and weekend appointments. Additionally, because of advanced technology, many treatments that used to require multiple appointments can now be completed in just one visit!
For your convenience our office is open: Monday – Thursday, 8am to 5pm.


You may be anxious about your dental visit for a variety of reasons. Let us put you at ease! Your concerns are our concerns. We promise to fully explain your options; you are in full control of your choice of treatment. If at any time you’re nervous or uncomfortable in the chair, simply raise your hand and we will take a break.


You know you need to visit every six months, but somehow time slipped away and it’s been a year…or two…or more. Now you’re worried that when you finally visit, you’ll get the “raised eyebrow” and a lecture. Let us reassure you ‐ we will not lecture you. Our focus on your needs and care is forwards, not backwards.


We work with multiple insurance providers and will gladly help you with your paperwork, even filing on your behalf. Additionally, we will fully explain the costs associated with your treatment upfront so there are no mystery charges or surprises later.
