Don't Let Embarrassment Keep You from Visiting the Dentist


Posted on 2/27/2016 by Dr. Call
A man suffering from a embarrassing smile. Do you think it might be a good idea to visit the dentist, but you are embarrassed by how long it has been? Many people who have taken a time out from their dental care for a while find themselves in this position.

You know the importance of getting your teeth checked regularly, but you are worried about getting a lecture. The simple answer is that you should never be embarrassed to seek out dental care.

Many people forget to have dental exams, and the most important thing is that you are making the decision to get treatment now. Regular dental exams are important in detecting serious health issues like oral cancer.

Additionally, your dentist can help you to maintain good oral health in the future while also correcting problems like gum disease and tooth decay before they have a chance to become more serious problems.

Most dentists are used to working with patients who have not had a checkup in a while, so you should not worry about what he or she will think of you. Dentists are moving away from blaming patients, as they understand that dental health is affected by a variety of factors. Their ultimate goal is to help you achieve a beautiful and healthy smile, and they understand that by providing you with a positive office experience you’ll be more likely to return.

If you do feel embarrassed about your teeth, make sure that you let your dentist know about your dental anxiety and any other concerns that you might be experiencing. If there is something in particular that has kept you from visiting a dentist in the past, let them know.

Over the course of their careers, dentists will be exposed to a variety of oral health problems, so they have likely seen much worse than what is going on in your mouth. Most importantly, your dentist will not judge you based off of your oral health, and instead, they will work with you to improve your smile.

Century Dental Creating the Smiles You Dream of!


Welcome to Century Dental, where we make your beautiful smile our business! Dr. Densley and Dr. Call have teamed up to create the driving force in the dental industry of the Pacific Northwest. We have put together a team of highly skilled, professional staff.

Hillsboro Family Dentist


We take great pride in creating a comfortable and friendly environment where our patients can have a positive dental experience. Located in Hillsboro, our office is easily accessible as it is right off of Oregon Route 8. We have gone to great lengths to make sure our office is both state-of-the-art and also comfortable and inviting.

Services Offered


Preventive Dentistry

We are passionate about preventing problems before they start. We do so by educating our patients about what positive dental habits they can be forming and having our patients visit us twice a year for exams and cleanings.

Restorative Dentistry

We understand that often, due to circumstances outside of your control, your mouth may need restorative actions taken. That’s why we offer a bevy of restorative procedures to bring your smile back to it’s original luster.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Frequently we hear that the procedures that make the biggest difference in our patient’s smiles are cosmetic in nature. Whitening, veneers and Invisalign® are just a few of the cosmetic procedure we offer!

IV Sedation

For those patients that need more than just oral sedation we offer what is often called “sleep sedation”. If anxiety is an issue or if the procedure calls for it we can easily place you under full anesthesia to ensure that you rest peacefully through the whole thing.

Dental Implants

If you have lost a tooth or are looking at tooth removal as an option, dental implants are the most highly recommended form of replacement for teeth. Dental implants involve inserting a titanium post into your jaw which will fuse with your bone structure. The post will be topped with a crown made specifically to fit your bite. The result is a form of tooth replacement that looks and acts exactly as your real tooth would. It even prevents bone loss, which is a common side effect of tooth loss.

Dental Technology


We are happy to use a great variety of cutting edge technology in our practice. Digital X-rays are one of our staples in dental tech. Standard X-rays can take time to view and process but with the advent of digital X-rays we can view the inner workings of your mouth almost instantly. We are also able to take higher quality X-rays that allow us to detect things like tooth decay within the tooth, cysts, tumors, and impacted teeth. Further, the radiation you receive from a digital X-ray device is about 1/5th that of a standard X-ray.

We also offer intraoral cameras and ultrasonic scalers. The intraoral cameras aid us in detecting any issues within your mouth that may need further dental attention. Ultrasonic scalers are by far the most effective method for removing built up plaque and tartar that has accumulated on teeth.
