No More Dental Pain

No one likes to be in pain. And no one likes to pay for a service that causes pain, even if it’s temporary. When we avoid going to the dentist, it is often because the perceived pain of the visit outweighs our current level of discomfort.

Unfortunately, by delaying the inevitable visit to the dentist, you can make things much more difficult in the long term. Often, the delay in care creates an emergency and then what? Pain, expense, inconvenience, and health issues…

Is there a better way to address fear of the dentist and dental problems? With Dr. Henry-Ward in St. Louis, there is!

Let Us Be Your Gentle St. Louis Dentist

If you knew there were a dentist that would carefully explain each procedure and that she and her staff would take every effort to make your visit as comfortable as possible, would you be more likely to schedule a visit? Better still, if that visit went well, you’d probably make a habit of visiting her a little more frequently, which would prevent future dental problems altogether. What if we told you at Dr. Henry-Ward’s family dental practice all of this is possible?

“Thank you!! I am 66 years old and have always had a fear of dentists. My fear begins when I enter a dentist office and it never ends. Dr. Henry-Ward was highly recommended by both of my daughters and son-in-law. They assured me that my visit would be pleasant and most importantly, painless.

“To my surprise, my family was right. My experience was so much more. Dr. Henry-Ward has a gentle spirit and a light touch that keeps you calm. She is determined not to let you experience pain. The staff was caring, patient and made me feel right at home.

“I am proud to say Dr. Henry-Ward has become our family’s dentist. Thank you again… – A. Holloway”

What Our Patients Say

Very gentle, very competent. I am very appreciative of your skill and skill of your staff. Thanks.

Shawna Silva

Beginning in 1995 Dr. Ward took over my dental care. She has proven to be as painless as I believe possible. My bridges have performed perfectly. My extractions have been very few, and my partial is working without incident. I recommend that anyone needing dental work consider using Dr. Ward.

Rudolph Hughes

Since having my first traumatic experience as a 9 year old with an army dentist I was always anxious about going to the dentist; my muscles would get tense, and I would grip the arms of the dentist chair, anticipating the worst.
But what a difference Dr. Ward has made in my previously harrowing experiences with dentists. With her calm caring manner and soothing touch, I actually became more relaxed in the dentist chair. What a relief!

Then as a bonus, there are times she would softly hum a tune which even makes me more calm, like a mother soothing an anxious baby – I guess I must have been a big baby when it came to dentists, but not anymore! Thank God for Dr. Ward! And her friendly staff aren’t too bad either.

Deanna Little

Dr. Ward, I want you to know how much I appreciate the care I have received here. I am so happy with the improvement in my gums, and it is because of your emphasis on preventive oral care. It has made a huge difference, and I thank you.

Dave Diaz

One day during my morning prayer and meditation I had to look up the word honorable. The word is rich in meaning and implies the purest, highest, noblest kind of goodness. Honorable means “lovely”, “winsome”, “gracious”, “noble” and “excellent’. Your name, Winsome, definitely describes your character and your practice. God bless and keep you!!!
