Some people are afraid of Dr. Devlin. Yes, he was a linebacker at Penn State University and then played four seasons in the NFL with the Cincinnati Bengals—but that’s not it. Some people are simply afraid of visiting the dentist, so Dr. Devlin understands when people don’t want to come see him. However, he also knows that these are the same people who really do need to see a dentist, because their oral health has probably been neglected for too long. If you count yourself among people who have dental anxiety, then schedule a visit with Dr. Devlin, the sedation dentist State College residents rely on for comforting and compassionate care.

It could be for several reasons: something that happened during their childhood, a recent experience at a dental office, or any other unfortunate accident that occurred. No matter how you slice it, dental phobia is a real ailment for some patients, and one that requires attention. Dental phobia has such influence over a person that they may choose to forgo any treatment. This is a very bad idea.
